    I could care less, honestly. I like this one just fine. If anything, give us the option. That and a numeric lock code.

    When was 2.01 released? I'm still on 2.0.1.;)

    Honestly what's the point of this thread OP? There has already been heated discussions on this. A bunch of babies who can't accept change. We don't need a link to another discussion. We've had plenty of our own.

    the old one was ugly and unpolished...those arrows were just plain cheap looking. I'm not sure why people liked that??? the new one is worlds better....

    I mean really, in my book it doesn't matter one bit. While I think that they should allow choice on this matter, it doesn't bother me one bit. Though I do think they should allow for a numerical lock, it only makes sense.

    I hate the new one. It looks blocky and LOW tech like it was designed by Microsoft.

    Arc may have had a more visual appeal but I find it much nicer to have a straight, simple swipe. The arc felt as if you had to have a longer swipe to get it to unlock... not to mention the new screen is sweet. It's just the lock screen people... we see if for very brief periods before we open up the awesomeness of this phone... let the issue die.

    that doesn't bother me, but I do get a bit annoyed when I need to put in my unlock code to hang up my phone or access my dial pad once my phone is against my ear.

    It's just an unlock screen...it works, so what's the problem? Don't know why they changed it to begin with, but does it really matter that much?

    Smokin, the screen should wake up just by moving it away from your face. There is a sensor for this that darkens the screen when you place it next to your face and vice versa. You shouldn't have to unlock again

    I think it is so funny that so many people are claiming to like the "rotary style" better. I guess they didn't realize that only the graphic looked like that. You could unlock it by simply swiping your finger directly from left to right.. not in a semi-circle motion.

    The issue is not the functionality but the aesthetics. I, like many here, liked the old graphic of a hemi-circular path for the unlock/mute icons. There really isn't much of a point to argue this as everyone will have their opinions on whether they like the old or new, and even less so for people with no opinion. Who knows? maybe developers will hear our opinions and put an option in t he future.

    i like the new one even though they both were fine in my book. it would be really cool to have more customization options though. sometimes something new is good.
