    i don't understand why while using the lock feature on my Incredible when i recieve a text it shows up on the screen before i unlock the phone. isn't the point of locking it to keep prying eyes from seeing your stuff? Is there a way to prevent the contents of the text from showing up before unlocking while still being notified that you have recieved a message? thanks.

    Not in the notification bar, when locked it shows up below the time and date. says new message and displays the actual text message content and it stays there until read.

    I have never seen that but I have been using widget locker. It changes The lock screen to the vanilla lock with customize options.
    Are you on stock 2.2? What's your set up? Any notification apps?

    I tried handscent and didn't like it. Do you have a message widget on one of your homescreens?

    Now I see what your taking about. Try widget locker in the market. It won't do that. And you can put custom sliders on as well, to swipe right into a certain app. I have a lock slider and a slider that swipes me right into my inbox.

    Handscent will change your whole message app. Widget locker only changes The lock screen, for The better!;)

    are you referring to the "Widget Locker Lockscreen by TeslaCoil Software for $1.99? or the free Lock Screen Widget by droid-mania?

    With widget locker you can have widgets on the lockscreen as well as a different wallpaper just for the lockscreen!
