    I have the lg ally and I want a new unlock screen. I tried lockbot and it sucks its unreliable and laggy. All I really want is to change the pic for my lockscreen background from what my regular wallpaper is. And I want a lockcode also. Anyone know of any? I am willing to pay 3 or 4 bucks also. Thanks

    Widgetlocker is the best lockscreen replacement. A little difficult to setup properly though.

    Widgetlocker IMO is the best lockscreen replacement. You can try both of them and see which one you like and which one meets your needs

    Good catch Ref. Just delete the one you don't like within 24 hours and keep the one you do

    Not by the new market rules, its 15 minutes

    Since my Archos does not have a lockscreen, I ended up installing widgetlocker. It works good IMHO.

    For some odd reason I missed having a lockscreen.

    Yeah it blows. Now you don't really get a chance to try the app out before you decide if you want to keep it or not.

    is there an app that serves as a complete fone lockdown? ie, when set and locked no one can operate the phone buttons or gain access upon battery pull/restart

    I was being facetious, referring to "bricking" the phone. Once you brick it you can't use it.

    dont quite get it .... how would asking for a lockdown app result in a statement about bricking the phone?

    cant tell if that comment is in your sig or part of the statement ...

    Its a joke...
    "is there an app that serves as a complete fone lockdown? ie, when set and locked no one can operate the phone buttons or gain access upon battery pull/restart"

    What's another answer to your original question? To Brick your phone.

    I apologize if my joke came out wrong.

    I tried using WidgetLocker, but discovered (after the aforementioned 15 minute limit) that it really doesn't play well with unlock codes/patterns. More specifically, I have to unlock WidgetLocker, unlock the stock lockscreen and then enter my unlock code/pattern. Does anyone know a way around this double lockscreen behavior, while still requiring an unlock code/pattern?
