    I don't understand why any of this was removed:thinking::thinking::thinking:

    Cause they can?? Honestly I don't know why. Oh well... Ironically I probably wouldnt use that widget and I currently use the app called "screen mode" where I can bypass my lock screen upon pressing the wake button. So I guess it won't effect me lol

    Yeah not really a big thing for me either, maybe if I had some experience with this widget I might miss it. But, as it stands, I have have never used it.

    They also removed the slick Samsung Music player as well for some reason

    The lock screen music player widget was the best thing of its kind and I can see myself using it a lot - saves the unlock, go to music controls in notification panel and then do what you want to do thing. Also, it would have been helpful to just press power button and see if you missed any call or any text message. So notifications and music widget on lock screen was something I was really looking forward to. Do you think any developer can port the captivate lock screen to Epic?

    Yeah, shouldn't be a problem.

    With root, all things are possible ;)

    Hoe do you guys know all this? It could easily be a review model with beta software, they won't just up and remove their widgets which they spent so much time advertising.

    That's a good point, and very plausible.

    I hate the lock screen with a passion. Except for checking for missed calls or messages!

    I did too actually. I was coming from a flip phone where I was used to just flipping it open and getting onto the actual phone. Then I got my Moment and it was annoying to have to first hit the unlock button and then unlock the screen (On 2.1 you swipe to the right) to get to my phone. Then soon after I luckily found an app to bypass it. Now all I have to do is hit the unlock button :)

    I used password lock on occasion when I am out...

    I liked the lock screen but I spend so little time on it it won't make a huge difference, mostly I liked the puzzle pieces so I could get to the text and missed calls quickly
