Well, while I do not own a G2 I would assume to get the affect you want you will have to DL widget locker from the market. It will allow you to have a different lock screen from home screen.

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker&feature=se arch_result

It is $1.99 on the market.

I just got an SGS2 and mine works just fine. You may want to reset the entire phone and try again.

Just go to the settings under display. Usually the wallpaper for lockscreen is defaulted to "none", so it copies the homescreen wallpaper.

By default, you cannot have a different home screen wallpaper and lock screen wallpaper. (at least that's the way it is on my Galaxy 1)

While I have never used this particular application, if the person claims you can have two different wallpapers, then you might want to take a look at it, if spending money is worth it.

Rooting is another alternative for the solution, but requires much much more knowledge.

Widget locker is brilliant. You can choose a seperate wallpaper, add widgets, apps or short cuts plus a wealth of unlock sliders

That sounds nice but I want no part of my phone accessible before the lock screen, as I use the pattern lock.

You can make it force you to enter the pattern lock before it shortcuts you to that application.

This is a great application, any thing you can think of doing with it or anything you dont want to be done with it can be changed.

You can also disable interactions for widgets on widget locker so touching them wont open anything.

You can also put in an invisible slider. LOL.

I know you can change the lock screen background and the background for home screen on a stock Galaxy S2. I have one. Go to Settings -> Display -> Screen Display. From there you can choose which wallpaper you want for each.
