    Like my SGS2 so far. Like the lock screen with nice wallpaper and date+time. But now, when i activate the lock password (pin number), the huge keypad covers up the screen instead of the lock screen. No date+time and can't see the wallpaper. Anyone has any suggestion how to overcome this? For example, can I still have the lock screen and if I touch a button, the keypad asking for pin number comes up?

    I wish there was an app that would allow me to lock the screen without pushing the button on the side.

    A hand swipe or two fingers swipe or something that would lock the screen without the button. Sometimes it is not that easy to access the button and another way would be great!

    Search "lock screen" in the market. There are a few apps and widgets that will lock your phone.

    Thanks but that would lock the screen constantly causing me to have to unlock it all the time. That is not what I am looking for.

    I founds an app called "Screen Off and Lock" It works perfectly!

    if you have the pin password setup. using "Screen Off and Lock", if you unlock, will it show the keypad? If yes, then still can't see date/time and the nice wallpaper.

    Sorry, but only use this to lock the screen when done using the SG2 to avoid using the side button which with the barey there case is not that easy to push! This has been a GREAT enhancement of my SG2.:)
