    I am having some troubles with missed calls and SMS notification, cause the only notification I get is that little icon in the status bar and that is not very helpfull. In some others phone with android, whenever you get a sms or missed call the notification appear in the locker screen and another notification appera in the phone icon and in the SMS incon with the numbers of SMS or calls missed. So, cant I get notifications from the lock screen and in the icons? Since, that is a very important function, I expect to solve this problem.
    Sorry for any english mistake.

    Long press the screen, select Widgets, scroll down to universal inbox. Tap on universal inbox. Now it will give you the option of showing missed calls and texts and even updates on Facebook in this box. When your through selecting what you want to shoe in the box, you can. Resize it and place it in your preferred location on your home screen. Hope this helps???

    Thank you for your help, but it not exactly what I am looking for, because this widget is always in the screen and it is not on the lockscreen, I wish I could get the notifications from the lock screen and on the home screen just show notification as number in the icons, like in some other phones I saw. Is there anyway to do such a thing?

    What it sounds like you are looking for is an app such as Go Locker, found in play store for free. Once you download Go Locker, there are several different go locker themes you can choose and download. Each them has similar but also added or different features. I believe the default theme displays message count and missed call count and you can slide the unlock to open directly to your text messaging app, your phone app or directly to your home screen. Other themes add features, such as adding additional apps to unlock directly to, or may have a battery meter on the lock screen. The various themes you can download pretty much gives you whatever features you would really like for your lock screen.

    +1 for GoLocker, it is a fantastic program. And with the last update they added music control.

    Didn't know that sorry, would have mentioned it in the recommendation. I guess since I use GoLauncher the thought never crossed my mind, course switching to GoLauncher wouldn't be a bad thing. I feel that it is much better than the stock launcher, course that is up to personal preference though.

    I installed the Go launcher and the go locker, and I discovered that it is possible to use the go locker with the default launcher, you just need to have installed the go launcher. The Locker is very nice, but it doesnt have the option to select the silent mode, and I didnt find a default gadget to do that, so now i cant turn off the volume of the phone. Is there anyway to put this switch in the locker or something like that? what do you do to turn off the volume of your phone, since you are using go locker?

    Thank you for your help.

    I am not sure if they have another theme that might add that function. Honestly I don't mess with the volume on my phone much, if I need it silent I just unlock it and use the Beautiful Toggle I have on my home screen for silent mode.

    I am also sorry. I didn't realize that you also had to have the go launcher installed but good to know you can use the stock launcher with it even though you also have to install go launcher.

    You may be able to find a theme that has a volume feature. In settings you are supposed to be able to select that the volume rocker works when locked but I haven't been able to get that feature to work on my Razr. There are also themes that let you customize which apps you can directly unlock to. Let us know if you have success. Thanks!

    Well this was a bust. I downloaded both Go Locker and Go Launcher and all I got was a few transparent widgets and most of my home screen widgets gone.:icon_evil:

    This program totally sucks. Can't shut it off or go back to were I was before I loaded it. My home screen sucks, lost all my shortcut widgets, and I can't even show the main reason I loaded the program. To use it as a missed message and missed call home screen. Were is this? I can't even find it.

    Your home screen Widgets and apparently are still there but they are on your stock launcher. If you press the home button, you may get a pop - up to choose which launcher you prefer. If not, you will either have to clear the default in the go launcher application settings ( go to settings, then applications, go launcher and select clear default) or Depending on the phone you have you will have to download a home switcher app from play store.
