    I think I have things setup properly, but please correct me if I am wrong... Whenever I get a message or email or anything in my notification bar, I am able to just swipe down and access it without even unlocking my phone... Is it me or is this not a major flaw ??

    If anyone can explain or have a different app to lock the phone, please let me know..

    I am not using any "LOCK" app, and have my phone set for "REQUIRE PATTERN" in settings. When I get a notification, I have to unlock the phone with the pattern before I can open the notification bar.

    Flaw? No you're lucky. This is the first I've heard of this. Something may be up with your device.

    Lock 2.0 isn't very good. If you power off the phone and turn it back on, the app won't auto start and therefore is an easy bypass if the phone is stolen. Also, if you long press the home button, it will also bypass the lock. Lock 2.0 isn't much of a real lock.

    If anyone knows of an app that allows a working number lock, i'd love to know about it.

    Haven't thorougly tested this but am considering LockBot for number lock purposes. You may want to take a look at it. Hope it is what you are looking for.

    While I like how lockbot works better than lock 2.0, it suffers the same issues. Long pressing the home button bypasses the lock.
