    I'm I missing something, but I cannot seem to find the setting to change the Lockscreen background? The only option I can see is to set the Home screen Wallpaper which also changes the Lockscreen, but I want a different image on the Lockscreen!

    I'm sure I could do this on the Hero but not on the Desire.

    When I go in to Personalize all that is in there is Scenes, Home Wallpaper and Default Ringtone - No Lock Screen Wallpaper.

    This is on my unlocked Desire and my wife`s TMobile Branded Desire.

    Same here. I would be interested in a work round for this too.

    Two ways I know of so far

    LockBot (either free or paid for version)
    Widget Locker

    The latter will also alow you to put wigets and shortcuts on the lockscreen too
    I run mine with a clock and a battery meter

    My fiancee has a HTC Wildfire, when she goes to 'set as' she has the option of wallpaper or lockscreen image but on my desire I don't have this, both running android 2.1

    Any ideas why i can't and she can?

    same with my Fiance's HTC Hero.

    Its just not an option on the desire, thats all.

    Possibly due to the fact that we can have live wallpapers and the hero\wildfire can't?
