    The home screen says "This phone belongs to" but I do not know how to enter my name into it. How do I enter the data to have my phone show who the phone belongs to?

    There is nothing in the "manual" they provided or in the pdf version on their website.

    Thanks in advance for the reply(ies)

    I have a Motorola Droid from Verizon.

    Settings -> Location & Security -> Custom message

    You can put anything you want in there...like a whole paragraph if you want.

    Whoops, my bad, folks, I didn't know the custom message wasn't a stock option. It's been so long since I've used a stock system. Must be part of UD. Sorry for the mislead.

    I was trying to do the same thing. I found you can do it through the Antivirus app. Go to the Antivirus app and at the app's home screen press the menu. Then go Settings->Remote Management->Lost Message->Text Before

    Then you can enter whatever you want it to say.

    I use an app called "Contact Owner", you can get from the markplace. Works great on my stock D1.

    That is so true, but if I misplace it at work someone will return it to me.

    Also, might get lucky and have my phone found by another Droid Owner who would know that the phone was important to the owner and would return it.

    Contact Owner

    Thanks. I was also looking for this exact thing without having to download and install an antivirus. "Conact Owner" did the job!!!
