    Hi guys,

    Newbie here. Hello to all.

    I've recently upgraded from my Blackberry curve to the Desire.

    One feature I liked on my Blackberry was the option to add your email address and alternative phone number to the lockscreen so that if you do lose the phone, there's a chance a decent human might contact you and arrange to return it.

    Is this option out there for the Desire?

    Try an app called Contact Owner. I think that was it, but haven't used it in a while. There is an app, though.

    A good tip is to Google the function you want. Like "contact information lock screen app android". That's how I usually find the apps I want.

    Thats the app I was looking for.

    Unfortunately it doesn't access my contacts list and therefore I can't set it up with my details. Other reviewer of the app show the same issues.

    Boo!

    It shows numbers instead of contacts but they are actually your contacts, I eventually found the person I was looking for after selecting loads of random numbers but it then wouldn't show on the lockscreen, good idea but rubbish execution.

    I use WidgetLocker as a lockscreen, and a Whiteboard widget with the message "If found, please contact xxxx"
