Possible to disable display of SMS text messages?
I'm sure I'm in a small minority but I don't like to be bothered by text messages. I don't want people sending them to me and don't want to be bothered by texts from my carrier, politicians, or other spammers. My flip phone does not automatically display texts, it merely puts a tiny icon up on its tiny screen to indicate their presence (no audio or vibrating alert is given) and I can go through the phone's menus to look at them if desired. SMS is working in my Mobian installation in testing but it's not something that I plan to use when going live with the Pinephone.

Is there a background daemon in Mobian that can be disabled so incoming text messages are not displayed? (I assume there's no way to stop receiving them since that capability is part of the modem - just not having them pop up on the screen would be sufficient.)
