Default Help Please regarding the jigsaw piece screen unlock.

Hi,
Can someone please tell me how to set my phone up so I can use the jigsaw style screen unlock for my samsung galaxy S?

At the moment I can either have a pattern unlock, where I swipe a pattern of 4 circles to unlock my phone. If I turn this option off it just tells me to swipe the screen to unlock.

Thanks in advance.

Thats right, and if you use non-default messaging/email apps it may not detect them (I use exchange for my gmail, so when I was using the default lock screen I wouldn't get the jigsaw for my email notifications).

Honestly go one better than default and use Widget Locker (in conjunction with No Lock). Makes the lockscreen much more useful!

Thank you both for the help! I didnt realise the jigsaw unlock only appeared for messages and txt messages. I was also using the four circle code swipe to unlock my phone which prevented the jigsaw unlock being active. Its a nice lil feature. Thanks again!
