Is there a way to replace the message icon on the lockscreen with GV?

    to my knowledge you cannot replace either of the lockscreen shortcuts...MMS or dialer. They directly access the stock mms and phone apps.

    When you get a text it should just give you a little message counter over the sms icon. Just hold your finger on it and it should pop up the message on the top of the screen

    So, I hate to bring this up again, but I thought I might see if anyone has any fresh ideas. Is there a way to make GV text messages show up on the lock screen? I mean it has to be pulling the data from some where and their must be a file that could be edited? If impossibly then please forgive my ignorance!

    Nope your right there has to be a way to do it. But most likely you wont see it on the port unless you go over to MIUI and get the Chinese developers to add the option to show other message programs on the lock screen. I might have to get me a list together and send it to them.

    I think that is a great idea because they are working with XDA and cyanogen so why not us!! We are only helping to spread the greatness of MIUI dancedroid

    Not 100% true. I have DialerOne set as my default phone app, as a fix for a force close issue, and when I pull down the phone side of the lock screen, it opens DialerOne. I think they go to your default app,even if it is a 3rd party app.

    They most likely access whatever app you have set as default for those actions (Dialer & Messaging). This however, will never work with Google Voice, as it is not a Messaging application in the "normal" sense.

    Google Voice has a messaging feature, but that's all it is, a feature. Plus isn't not SMS in the traditional sense either; it just sends messages over the internet. In any case it's more of an IM feature than it is a SMS feature.

    oh..i didnt realize you can access your default. It appears that any other apps for phone or mms dont allow the long press from long screen to preview the message Handcent has a popup and while the app is nice....i dont like it as much as the stock. I prefer something a little more simple...plus...I use the swipe delete feature a lot.

    As well as preview from lockscreen.

    Well, if that's the case, then it CAN be changed from that "default messaging application" to any other application. I am no hardcore programmer, but it is definitely feasible.

    I found some posts on XDA that say it can be done, but I'm double checking that now. I have GV set as my default sms in contacts, but it still only loads to the built-in one from the lock screen.

    Technically, of course it can be written to be a shortcut to any app, but that's not what was asked. As it stands, you can only change it by changing your default messaging app system wide; but again, Google Voice is not a messaging application. So the system doesn't set Google Voice as a default messaging application.

    Can it be re-written/re-coded to work with GV? Of course, anything is possible. Will it be re-written/re-coded for that purpose? Not likely.
