    I think it only happens with Touch Wiz and uses the icons in the dock on the homescreen.
    I wish I could have shortcuts on the lock screen using other launchers without having to use 3rd party lockscreens.

    Widget Locker is great on the S2. I use it and have no problems. Swipe right to unlock, left for camera, and up for SMS for me, but you can set it up however you want.

    Yeah I thought this also, was looking forward to doing stuff from the lock screen.

    You can basically do anything you want from the lock screen with Widget Locker

    The problem with Widget locker for me is I need to have media controls in the screen when media is playing and there isn't a widget that works with the stock GS2 media player for the lockscreen, then goes away when media isn't being played.
    Tried Go locker and there was some great screens on there that would be perfect, but again no media controls and you tend to get the double locking effect with the stock lockscreen and then huge lag when unlocking to the launcher.

    So for the moment I'll stick with the stock lockscreen :(

    Lock screen? I keep enabling go locker buying will
    Eventually find the stock one shows up, then after
    Swyping to make it go away the go locker one
    Is hidden behind meaning a two part lock screen
    Opening.frustrating.any ideas?

    Tapping,I have double checked that fill screen
    Box is ticked in settings.
