    Is there a way of showing contact information on the first unlock screen (in case the phone gets lost).

    I've tried Contact Owner but it adds the information to the 2nd unlock screen - the one with the unlock pattern.

    Anyone know of an app that can do this?

    Or is it possible to change the wallpaper for the lock screen ONLY so that I could add it the wallpaper file using an image editor.

    This seems a major flaw.

    Theres an app in the market "Screen Suite" that does this, also changes the default lock screen to an iphone style slide to unlock which I prefer, it can display contact info, including pic, change backgrounds, clock, battery. It is by far the best unlock screen i have tried, although i couldn't try Lock 2.0 as my app got stuck on "authorising purchase" in the market, quite a common problem i have now found out.

    Junkiepilot, I tried both those, they weren't totally secure.

    I'll give wavesecure a go.

    I have actually just dropped this app and gone for lockbot instead, much better but doesn't do what you want.
