How to hide stuff from significant other?
i know i know...im a bad person. BUT i have a legitimate question. she keeps asking to see my phone because she doesnt trust me. i feel like just saying **** off and moving on, but i want to try this first.
text messages, emails, pictures, etc....how do i hide them? is there a way to switch to a separate profile or hide these items with a few clicks on the phone? this way i can hide what i need to before i get to her place, then unhide when im alone again? thanks!

You can place pictures in a folder that begin with a period (.) They well not show up in the gallery. As far as emails don't d/l on the phone check on web site only.
There is an app called "app protector" that is supposed to allow you to lock any app and it would require a password to access...don't know if that will help you or not...
Failure isn't falling down, failure is staying down.
so just use a fiile explorer to view them, gotcha. thank you

however as you know "someone" may see the password as a threat, and assume i have something to hide and thats why it is in place.
Dude you need shady SMS. Had a different icon with a passcode you can choose to not have an icon at all perfect for you.
Or you could stop being a "bad person"! :-)

got it, but that handles the text only doesnt it? i want a simple way to hide multiple things at once. shadysms is amazing though, really like it. does exactly what im looking to do to but not to everything though only sms.

you can also try File Cover, it hides photos and videos
I use it and it's free in the market
or you can use handcent. it has a black list option and the blacklist can have a password as well as handcent the application. and it can password protect the stock txt app too.
