I downloaded widgetlocker but it doesn't seem to play well with the pin lock and so far only has allowed me to access the camera and drop in the dashclock widget (without pin) but I am not getting previews of new texts and other messages. This is a big deal for me as I need to have that quick preview of items that may need immediate attention without fully unlocking my phone. Any advice would be very much appreciated!

I use the "pattern" lock on my phone. I get my text messages popping up on the lock screen. The setting for that is Messages>settings. Scroll down to Notification Settings and select Notifications and Preview Message. Not sure if the other apps will do that for you or not.
