    Ever since I updated my phone to 2.2 yesterday, on my lock screen where the alarm should display it says "If found, please call "name" at "number", Thank You". It even still has the little Alarm Clock symbol right next to it.

    It also shows up in the little Desk Clock feature that they included in the update, if I tap on it there it takes me to the alarm.

    I vaguely remember setting such a message right after I got the phone in February, but I disabled it and havent seen it since. Does anyone know how to make this stop, or how to delete/edit this message?

    I don't have any third party ICE apps or anything like that.

    I would post a screen shot of my lock screen but I am not exactly sure how to do so.

    My phone has never done this, and sometimes I wish it would, look in settings/security and see if you have any options to change it.

    Mine is the same as yours except between "set up screen lock" and "visible passwords" mine says "show custom message" and a place to checkmark it and then "custom message" and when you touch it you can add your own custom message to the lock screen.

    If it is part of this build, which is completely stock, then should it not give an option to change it? And why would that text replace my alarm time text?

    I have no idea what could be causing it, I looked on my phone at the list of apps installed and on appbrain and couldnt find anything that could do it.

    My Moto Droid 2.2 does not have this feature as well..

    but even before the update I had the (Contact Owner) app.

    It does the same exact thing, and takes up no resources, when your screen is locked it shows the contact info you set.


    Best bet until an update for the update.. lol
