    On my old Eris, when you were viewing an image in the gallery and hit "menu-->set as" you were given an option for "set as lockscreen". I do not have this option on my DInc2 running 2.3 OTA. I don't know if this option vanished due to the different OS or from a different version of sense.

    Does anyone know of a way to set an image for your lockscreen? (I miss seeing my perfectly cropped photo of a portal 2 turret upon boot/wake up.)

    So, I still have yet to find a setting on the DInc 2 to change the background... so, I started browsing the market and came across "Goto".

    Thing definitely looks pretty cool. It'll allow you completely customize your lockscreen and it's got a lot of features that the sense 3.0 lockscreen has, just with a different look. I'm slight hesitant to try it, as it is a paid app ($1.49 isn't really a lot though) and a lot of people are saying it has bugs lately as well as draining the battery.

    Anyone here tried it and want to chime in?

    Looks good. Might just have to give it a whirl.

    I was wondering the same thing (also coming from an Eris) . How are you liking this widgetlocker?

    I've been using WidgetLocker for a while and it has been working fine. There are many options including using different wallpaper on the lockscreen. It is easily customized - there are many slider themes to choose from, you can put widgets on the screen, etc. It is complex and it takes a little time to figure it all out, but it's worth it.
