Hello, fairly new iPhone 3 user here, Version 5.1.

I keep my iPhone locked, both for privacy and to prevent butt-dialing, but I've noticed that when I get a new text message it's displayed on the screen before I have a chance to enter the unlock password. It seems contrary to me to have a phone locked but with recent texts being displayed for anyone to see.

I've looked in Settings for a way to change this, but haven't found anything. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
