I've got Widgetlocker to customize my lockscreen. It gives different options for sliders and such. I also was looking around for a customized widget to put on the lockscreen (unread text and missed calls). arrjaytea provided me with one that was perfect, only downside is that it didn't function properly. I would have my girlfriend text me, even text myself and it would remain at 0 unread text, even though I hadn't opened the text to view it. Then it finally shows up the next day and the 0 turns to 2 unread. But these text were already viewed, which would make it 0 unread again. So I tried texting myself again, waited for the text to come through, turned off the screen and back on to the lockscreen and it reads 0 even though the text came through. Turned the phone off completely and back on and it reads 1 unread. I'm thinking maybe this widget is only for Better Home? I have LauncherPro Plus. There seems to be some kind of bug or long delay for the text counter to change. There is no name for this kind of widget, oddly. It just says Widgets (2). Missed Calls. New Messages. I don't know where this widget originated from other than from arrjaytea providing me a link to download the widget from a media share site. I also tried to use Desktop Visualizer 1x1(small) changed the icon to a custom text icon and put the action as Handcent text. Repeated the process again of having someone text me, even myself, no little pop-up came up. Went into Widgetsoid's Settings, on lockscreen, then to Pop-ups and noticed Hide SMS Popups and unchecked it since having it checked would have WidgetLock ontop of Handcent or ChompSMS Popups until unlock. Repeated texting process and still no luck. Now the last thing I did, which I didn't like, was to long press the screen (on lockscreen), go to Widgets, and click on Handcent widgets and click Small icon. That does have a pop-up and that does work when getting text. Only thing is the icon, provided by Handcent for widgets, is very ugly. Wish there could be a functioning Swipe Gesture action on lockscreens but unfortunately, there isn't. With Swipe gesture, I could easily replace the Handcent icon with a text icon and place a pop-up as the Swipe action for that. Does anyone have better suggestions or a custom unread and missed calls counter for the Lockscreen?
