Am I missing something??
Just switched over from a Iphone 5 to a Z10.....
Now am I missing something - for text messages/notifications......I get a flashing led and beep but the text message is not shown on the default screen.
I have to unlock the phone, scroll over to the hub, select text messages.
On the Iphone 5, the text jut pops up on the main screen..locked or not.
Is there a setting somewhere??

Blackberry is a business based idea - why would any business man / woman want their messages on screen where anyone can see them. We private users have discovered the thrill of the blackberry and I am very happy that my messages are secured under my hub!I am Nomophobic... Baaad Blackberry... baaaad Blackberrry

BlackBerry phones have always been this way by design. That's why there's always been 3rd party apps to provide this "feature" to those that desire it. I believe the one of the early options for the BB10 platform is the Hub++ app, and more will come as the API's are released.

Initially I missed the pop up notifications but now I feel it's better to have peek into the hub. So someone next to me can't glance my message. But wait let's hope blackberry might bring the cinnamon toast notifications soon so we will have a choice.

I was trying to set up an account for someone's iphone, and these messages kept popping up. Was pretty annoying to be honest.
The BB hub is pretty on point and a pleasure to use. Anyways let me get this straight, you're complaint is that you find it a hassle or difficult to quickly and seamlessly move your finger to the right, in order to peek or full on look at your hub? If you master the finger swipe technique =P, I think you'd find it quite handy and that you'd get things done quicker.

I rather not have a pop-up. If this feature ever came to BB, I hope I have the ability to disable it.
My wife and I sent silly BBM's to each other. I rather keep those between her and I and not a co-worker or family member that just so happened to glance at the phone at that time.

He's just trolling . . . No real interest in an answer, just a backhanded way of bringing up what he sees to be a shortcoming . . Doubt he ever had a z10 to take back, and if so he sure didn't do his research. I have a clever word for people like this, but last time I used it I got an infraction good riddence bud . . .

Dude - give it a rest.
Got the Z10 yesterday evening - it was/is a VALID question. Not trolling.
Don't insult please........ Many devices, many options.....I'm trying to like it. People come here for help...That's what I did.
Sorry if I hurt your feelings because I "may" go back to the Iphone.

I guess iPhone users are too used to their business all out to be read by anyone. I didn't even know iPhone messages did that.
I have had Blackberry's most of my life with a phone and I would die if my messages were just open like that. Especially since in my home, I leave my phone in one room or another when I am cleaning. Or if I am at a family members house I am known to leave it in some room by accident. I don't want them snooping. I love the privacy.
Also it is very annoying to be busy on your phone doing something and have a message pop out of nowhere. That is what I love about the hub so you can quickly peek, see if it is important to message back right away, or ignore for a bit.

At the end of the day, you have to accept that moving from one platform to another will require some sacrifices regardless. I just keep the text app open on an active frame and if I get a text, I go there immediately. But you have to chose the phone that suits you, of course, that's the beauty of options; going back to your old iOS, though, seems like the easy way out. Anyway, cheers buddy, hope you figure it out.Innovation requires a partnership, the user and the maker have to be willing to change to achieve it.

I think these features are in the making, and will probalby hit future OS updates

I do however agree with others in this post, the hub is a better place to store your messages and keep them private. Many of my friends have iphones, and over the years you dont want to know how many messages i got to read just by sitting next to them or just by playing on their phones..
having said that, your point is quite valid, and one should have the option to customize his notifications' options
