    was wondering if there is a way to change the text that's on the lock screen.

    right now, mine says...

    this phone belongs to :
    (my name)
    (a phone number that's no good anymore)
    protected by antivirus


    I have no idea how I originally got my name and the phone number to appear on the lockscreen. I've looked through the phone, consulted the manual...nada.

    Any help? (contact owner won't change it...didn't try lockbot)

    thanks in advance for any answers.

    Download antivirus from the market.

    are you saying that when I originally downloaded antivirus, it allowed me to change my lock screen text?

    look through the settings in antivirus and see if you can change it

    In your antivirus app, go into the settings. Here is where you add one of your contacts for those spaces. presumably, you would be that contact (with your home phone number of course :)).

    Tinfoil hat.

    "Protected by antivirus" seems like a clue to me. Why would anyone put that on their lock screen?

    It is the AntiVirus

    The text on the locked screen is put there by the Protect Antivirus. You can change it by opening the AntiVirus app, then choose Settings, then Settings again, then choose Remote Manangnment, and then Lost Message and you can add your name or delete it altogether.

    The remote manangement screen has the option as to wether or not you want a text on the screen or not.

    I personally left my name on the lock screen, might help it find its way back to me in a crowded place, but eliminated the "protected by antivirus" portion, which is irrelevent to the general public.
