I feel like the texts are a much more secure way to get the code, rather than my email. Anyone can access my email but my phone is always with me.

I also dont like anyone having a chance to see my email or any part of it - even if it is just a few letters.

So basically, can I disable the email guard so my phone is the only way to get into my account and my phone is the only way?

In the options of the SteamGuard, you can now activate de Authenticator on your phone via the Steam App.

Go to your Account Details/Account Security/Manage Steam Guard and chose the Authenticator option. It is not exactly the same as getting a text instead of a mail but allow you to use your phone and not your email address to log in to Steam.
