I don't believe you can stop the SMS messages appearing on the screen. After deleting the other phones, there should be no-one elses messages on their apart from yours, however you will have to delete any pre-existing messages on your screen.

I had well over 100 on my X3. I could pretty much see the previous owners life story, and had phone numbers for their family and friends (off the SMS).

I spoke to the dealer about this, and they had absolutely no idea how to bulk delete. I did say that it was a breach of the UK Data Protection because of some of the information.....

Anyhow, I had to spend an hour or more going through and deleting them one by one.
