    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...

    somehow i knew youd chime in im looking at the one now on appbrain online and that looks pretty cool, worth $1.99 to me.

    is there anyway to hide the gallery and mail and stuff like that? the password will give me piece of mind if i lose the phone or someone grabs it from me to mess around they wont see what they dont need to see, i like it.

    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.

    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.

    im actually not doing anything really bad. i flirt, im italian it happens. but she needs to understand trust is the foundation of a relationship, if theres no trust, theres no us. every little thing is an issue. so if there is nothing, even the little stuff, its over and out of mind. i wont change me for anyone, but this so silly.

    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.
