i just reread this thread again and see a couple of you know about using ICE in this manner, but i can tell you that i read a lot of long threads in other forums on this exact topic where no one knew it (or took the time to point it out). on my last phone (Droid X), i went as far as to imbed my name and contact info on a wallpaper image so it would show on the lockscreen. i work in a secure environment and i frequently have to leave my phone behind unattended, so having contact info on there is useful since folks at work will definitely make the effort to get it back to me.
i also can't get the contact info displayed using these apps on my lock screen.
i can't figure out how to add contacts to an emergency group either. any help would be appreciated.
Hi DDave - if you go to your main contacts page - at the very top of it you will see a red cross symbol and "In case of emergency" - click it - then click your "menu" button (you know - the four square thing - bottom left) ... Add Contact etc etc ... Add Note etc etc ... Now your ICE fields are populated right ... Lock your screen ... when you go to unlock it (when you go to put in either a password or your pattern) is when you'll see the "Emergency Contacts" button on the bottom of the screen ... You won't see it just at the screen where the unlock slider is - only when you've (slid the slider?) and are at the prompts to enter a password or pattern will you see the Emergency Contacts button - then you'll be able to click it and see the info ... You do have to populate the ICE fields first to even get the button to display ... I hope this makes sense ...
However, on Honeycomb (tablets), there is an Owner Information section that you fill in that *does* show on the normal lock screen. So, maybe with Ice Cream Sandwich this feature will show up on phones as well.
