I wanted to change the texting shortcut to my GO SMS..
Go to manage apps and disable the stock messaging app.
But ... that just get's rid of the app from the lockscreen. How do we replace it?
Is it based on whatever is currently set to default? When I updated to ICS, Handcent SMS was already set as the lockscreen messaging app.
You probably can't but you can use a app called WidgetLocker which will do that and a whole lot more! I heard about it around here a few days ago and bought it and I LOVE it! You gain all kinds of options with it. :biggrin:
Just to give you an idea what it can look like.

Loving this screenshot thing!

I've used widget locker but I prefer to keep to the native implementations of anything, mostly because things look like they are unified by some stylistic theme.
Lars, I've set Google Voice to default for texting from the people app and the people widget, but it still shows the native text msging app in the lockscreen...
Hmmm...I just checked a few settings and the only thing I have in place is Handcent SMS as my default messenger. I wish I could help you out but I don't know what I did because it was pre-set for me. However, what is strange is Camera360 was/is set as my default camera, but as you can see, it does not appear on my lockscreen...

I just disabled the Stock Text Messaging and GO SMS Pro is now on my lock screen.
So you can't just change the icon pic? Mine are all pink & I'd love to change those too...
WidgetLocker has been a favorite of mine since it first came out. I like seeing all of the OEMs using some of the ideas that WidgetLocker brought to the tablet first, but none of them give you the ability to customize that WidgetLocker offers.
I know you can the icons with a program like ADW or WidgetLocker (haven't tried this one yet)..ADW kind of reminds me of Windows Blinds for the computer. You can change individual icons or download a custom set of icons with ADW.
