    Alright, so its day 3 of my time with the captivate... so far so good. coming from my iPhone 2g, I will say the device is amazingly fast by comparison... Also, I have been able to make and receive calls from my office and my in-laws house... two places that had been frustrating dead-zones before. So I am happy.

    Now, I'm switching over to Google Voice for my SMS, since its free, usable on desktop, etc...

    I am also using LauncherPro as my Launcher.

    I am not rooted and don't really plan on rooting.

    A couple Questions:

    I LOVE the puzzle-piece unlock when there is a Text waiting, is there any way to have this become the standard unlock screen?

    Or, alternatively, can I at least get it to work for texts waiting on google voice? Any way to expand the puzzle functions to include email?

    Is there a good Google Talk widget?

    Is there something I can change to improve facebook notifications? It seems I don't get any, unless I open the app. I tried the widget, but that seems to be just a news feed. Am I missing some setting for push notifications?

    The puzzle lock is designed to show you things you missed - the immediate stuff - voice calls and text messages. No way to add email, but then it is usually a given that you have a bunch of email waiting.

    I don't know of anyway to enhance this, or add google SMS to it, but you should get notifications in the notification bar.
