    Are there any applications to customize the lock screen? I.e. the clock style, etc, etc.

    I asked a similar question about the lock screen last week and never got an answer either. I don't think it is possible yet. On my previous VZW phones I had my name displayed and deleted the "Verizon Wireless" tag on it.

    There is an app called Lock 2.0, if you pay for it then you can change the skins, backgrounds, and more. It is basically a slide to unlock that the crapPhone, but still looks cool. It doesn't cover the full screen of the Droid yet, but he said he is trying to fix that.

    I recently discovered an app called Flyscreen. it adds "widgets" to your lockscreen so you don't have to unlock it to access the apps/home screen. It doesn't seem well known yet but I'm super impressed with it's idea. It's a little slow on the droid (animations are blocky) but still usable. They're working on a fix for better droid performance!!

    search for "screenmodewidget". Its a free widget. Has three settings.
    Option 1 (sleep auto) leaves it stock with the timeout and lock slider.
    Option 2 (awake stay) lets the screen timeout but when you wake it up you don't have to unlock with the slider it just goes back to the screen you left on. Only issue is the side buttons also wake it not just top. Asked dev to look into this.
    Option 3 (screen stay) seems to keep the screen on period.

    Flyscreen is one of the best apps I have downloaded. You can use any button on the phone to wake the device up and you unlock the screen by using the menu key. You can add a number of widgets including a custom RSS feed to the lock screen. And best of all it is F R E E :icon_ banana:

    When your screen is locked and you are looking at FlyScreen you will see an icon of a small wrench on the bottom left. Just hit that icon and slide the Smile To Activate pop up over, then hit the wrench again for settings. There you can add/remove/customize your widgets.

    I don't think you can do that much in the lockscreen app, you can only change the backround, location of clock, etc.
    Not any specific file changing going on there.
    Not sure though.

    I tried this and so far, so good! Just remember that I'm new to the Droid so it doesn't take much!

    You may also want to check out Executive Assistant: Executive Assistant (Appventive)

    In lock screen mode, it provides a secure lock screen replacement that allows you to host widgets and preview gmail, calendar events, SMS (optionally popup & reply while locked), Google Reader, Facebook and Twitter.

    Lots of customization options. You can also use it as a welcome screen or as a home screen widget (many sizes to choose from).

    Available as both a free, ad-supported version and a paid, ad-free version. Just search for Appventive in the Market or scan the QR code in my profile.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Cheers,
    Steve
