    Hello all Ive been lurking on this site for a couple days now and I have a question. How do I change the default screen lock on my Hero. I see the wallpaper on my memory card named htc_wallpaper_01. However when I went to a graphic site I downloaded the picture I wanted to use and then I changed the name to htc_wallpaper_01 yet my default lock screen wallpaper doesnt change. Do anybody have any suggestions..

    If it's the same as the GSM hero then when on the home screen press:

    Menu > Wallpaper > Lock Screen.

    You can then select any picture in your albums.

    When I tried this, it brings me to my photo albums?

    So you can pick the image to replace the lockscreen wallpaper...

    You expecting something else?

    I want to use the standard wallpaper choices for the lockscreen.. It's using the original Blue one now, but when I go in to change it to match the 6-7 home screens, it only displays photos I've taken..

    Thats strange because mine takes me to a screen where I can select an album.

    Camera Shots (18)
    All Photos (71)
    All Downloads (8)
    ShootMe (6)
    Wallpaper (22) <-- I can pick this one and I get the default screens.

    I actually have the same problem. I changed my lockscreen to a photo off my SD card. Now I want to change it backto one of the stock photos, but when I click on Personalize-Locksreen, the only options I get are pictures that I've taken.

    Like that is ever gonna happen

    Anyway.... To keep your created or downloaded Wallpapers separate you really want to create a directory on the SD card

    On my phone I have created

    E:\Wallpaper and E:\Wallpaper\LockScreen
    note E:\ is the drive your PC assigns when your phone is connected

    I like these

    When I go to the the "personalize" section, I do not have an option for the lockscreen. Did I do an update and lose that function? Could that happen?

    I found "LSmemo" at the market. It allows you to change your lock screen image.not the home page image.it also allows you to enter short text memos to the lock screen.it is a little difficult to set up because it has so many features but it works great.....i use it on my newly flashed samsung fascinate that I run with the PowerWashed Gingerbread Beta version 3.0 ROM. Once set up and viewing the lock screen just hit the menu key to add text to the lock screen and change lock screen image. That way you can have"this phone belongs to"text right there on your lock screen.
