    "This phone belongs to: " appears on my Home Screen. I can't figure out how to add my name there!

    Thanks.

    his message is part of a third party application called Antivirus Free. When you power up your phone it will display:
    This phone belongs to
    protected by antivirus
    You do not have the ability to disable this feature within the app, however you can add your name.
    To add your name:

    1. From the applications menu, touch antivirus
    2. Touch Menu
    3. Touch Settings
    4. Touch Remote Management
    5. Touch Lost Message
    6. Touch Text before to change "This phone belongs to"
      Touch Contact Information to select a contact. (This is the name and number that will display)
      Touch Text after to change "protected by antivirus"

    The only way to remove this from the screen is to uninstall the application.
    To uninstall:

    1. From the applications menu, touch Market
    2. Touch Menu
    3. Touch Downloads
    4. Touch antivirus free
    5. Touch uninstall
    6. Follow the on-screen prompts to uninstall.

    If you're rooted and have CyanogemMod 6 RC2, you can put a custom message on the lockscreen. If/when I reflash Cyano, I'll try to post a sscreenie if someone doesn'tbeat me to it :D

    Simple answer:
    step 1, uninstall any/all antivirus apps you have installed.
    Step 2, done.

    This is not true. If you open the antivirus program and select remote management and de-select the 'Lost Message' box, the message will be removed from your screen. This is something I have found in another forum, that you can't remove it. So, while I was in the program, I had de-selected the message option. The message was then removed from your home screen.
