    Hi

    I've just signed up to Samsung s2 after years of using an iphone 2g. Is it possible to get new texts to show on the locked screen like the iphone? I've gone through all the usual menus and nothing seems obvious. :thinking:

    Do you want to see the actual texts or just want a notification with the number of unread texts? I would get a widget (of which there are many) and put it on your lock screen using WidgetLocker.

    Widgetlocker will let you have any widget on your lock screen, including those that show the actual texts.
