    That did it! I have both Camera360 and Handcent on my lockscreen. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I just got ICS today. I have handcent as my default messaging app, has been forever now but its not on my lockscreen, the stock messaging app is. Changed Handcent from my default messenger, then changed it back, and rebooted. The stock messaging app is still there. (The boyfriend has a menu to choose the apps-different device but still ICS -wonder why they left that out on RAZR.)

    Any suggestions on changing it (without having to buy an app)?

    Thanks!

    Go into Apps, move over to All and find Text Messaging and disable it. Whatever messaging app you are using will become default.

    That is because Google Voice isn't a true 'messaging' app. It is a application all on its own that supports not just texting, but voicemail collection as well. If you install a messaging app, such as Go SMS, Handscent, or any other, then it will show on your lockscreen.

    Hope this helps!

    I just figured it out for my Droid Razr.

    1. Click on Handcent SMS
    2. Go to Settings
    3. Click on Application Settings
    4. Click Default Messaging Application
    5. Select All(SMS & MMS)- That will make Handcent the "default texter"
    NEXT
    1. Go to the "home page" on your phone
    2. Go to your applications
    3. Scroll through until you find the original Droid texting app
    4. Touch and hold down on the app until it comes to your home page and drag it up to the top where it says "More Options"
    5. Select App Info
    6. On the page that it brings up click Disable. There will be a warning message, but just click ok. Then Handcent should now be the shortcut on your lock screen!

    WORKED FOR ME!
    HOPE THIS HELPS!!:)

    Will it let you change to any icon though? Like one in your library?

    I don't think we can change to any app in our libraries. On my boyfriends phone (not a RAZR, but on ICS)it gives him the option but I can't seem to find a similar one on my RAZR.

    Chomp SMS

    does anyone know how to change the text messaging shortcut to chompSMS without disabling text messaging. When I disabled text messaging it worked but then I would stop receiving text messages

    Changing lock-screen defaults

    I just used the ICS packaged gallery program to change the default camera program, and it changed it on the homescreen. I think any default you set for the four functions on the homescreen will automatically update the program that particular function selects. Pretty smart.

    Pretty necessary too because the ICS camera program is very bad. I don't really get that.

    I am trying to replace the stock SMS app with Go SMS on 4.1.1. I tried the steps listed above but I am clearly missing something. I have seen in this and several other threads the suggestion to just "disable" the stock messaging app. When i try to do this, I can't because the "disable" option is grayed out. I have already choosing a contact, sending them a text and, when prompted, selecting "Go SMS" and "always". Any suggestions? I'd love to get this working. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: This works fine on the the wife's Droid 4 on ICS so it's clearly a Jelly Bean issue.
