    What apps are there in which you can change the "home slider" when you unlock your phone. My default gray bar with the time and "verizon wireless" on it is not so easy going on the eyes, i wish to change that look.

    Thanks

    Lockbot 2.0.

    It rocks. You can mimic the iPhone feel, add an unlock sound, ect. Worth the money to trick customers into thinking i have a smaller iphone.

    sorry i mistyped my question it seems, the first screen you get where you have to slide down to unlock, that screen is what i want to change (of course changing other things! is a plus, im sure with an addon u can change all of it).

    You can go with Lock 2.0. It's like an iPhone lock.

    Not sure, it was only 2$ i think.

    The great thing about Android Market? You can buy something, try it out, and then return it within 24hrs.

    you're probably in Home. go to Menu-settings-applications-manage applications
    scroll down to "Home"

    click on it

    clear defaults

    click the home button, and it'll ask you which layout you'd like to use, click the little thing that says set as default, then choose sense UI and it should be fixed.

    I was playing around after installing lock 2.0. I got a little click happy and selected home from the more options. How do I get back to my old home screens? I am now on the one with only 3 screens and most of my shortcuts are missing. I tried the following from a previous post:

    go to Menu-settings-applications-manage applications
    scroll down to "Home"

    click on it

    clear defaults

    click the home button, and it'll ask you which layout you'd like to use, click the little thing that says set as default, then choose sense UI and it should be fixed.


    the option to clear defaults is grayed out.

    Ok question about lockbot. I noticed that it now allows my phone to wake using any of the hard buttons on the phone. Does this mean that the phone is not going to sleep and actually staying awake at all times? If that is the case I am worried about the drain on my battery.

    I figured it out. Clicked the home button, then selected HTC Sense. Oops.

    anyone having to unlock their phone TWICE?

    I created a scene, and deselected the all of the other scenes available...but whenever I unlock my phone, I am having to unlock my it twice. 1st the unlock screen I created comes up, then when that's gone, another pops up (and this one seems to rotate between the themes)

    Also, when I reboot my phone, the default unlock screen is used...

    [NM...turns out if you keep the free ver on the phone you will have to unlock the phone twice...I figured once you paid for the pro version, it would replace the free ver...not so]
