    I'm a new Android user... just a few weeks now.

    This afternoon, I wiped my phone and am starting from scratch. Lock 2.0 was giving me some issues and with all the installing and uninstalling of app's I've been doing in the past couple of weeks, I just decided to start with a fresh slate.

    Before I back and download Lock 2.0 again, I wanted to inquire with others out there on their experience with the App. I love it, but I wasn't sure if I didn't set it up correctly or I didn't understand how the app worked because it never did replace the default lock screen after I installed and configured it. I always had to manually launch it, unlock the screen and then it would take over.

    Not exactly what I had in mind for my money. Was thinking it was a full replacement for the default lock screen. Maybe I didn't read the fine print well enough.

    Also, what's been the experience with Open Home on the Sprint Hero?

    I'll come clean and admit I'm a Mac super-user stuck without an iPhone (I love Sprint!!). I carry my iPod touch and my Hero with me pretty much everywhere. I am LOVING my Hero though! It does exactly what I wanted it to.

    I like to get in and customize to the nth degree, but not at the expense of crappy app's that mess up my stuff.

    Any input on Lock 2.0 and Open Home would be appreciated.

    I have Lock 2.0 and it will retain the iPhone lock screen as long as the app is open (running in the background). If you restart your phone, the stock lock screen will take over.

    As far as Open Home, I have tried every single Home replacement app and honestly PandaHome is by far the best and it is FREE. PandaHome supports aHome, OpenHome and PandaHome themes.

    Awesome. Thanks for the reply.

    I love the fact that PandaHome has an online guide (PDF) you can flip through before installing!
