    Default Re: Can you add new shortcuts to lock screen?

    Hi
    Did you ever get a solution to not having the + sign to add shortcuts to the lock screen on you Samsung S3.
    I've got the same problem. I deleted one. Now only have three but the + sign is not appearing.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    I just got a new S3 mini and accidentally deleted one of the icons (before I realized that by pressing it I could easily change the app). Now I too am stuck with only 3 since I do not have a + icon.

    I've been searching high and low in GOOGLE, but as of yet I've not seen a solution.

    Is there a solution for this? This is definitely a bug, is it not?

    Thanks,

    Chaim

    sometimes it is under security then press screen lock and change it from flick to something else than back it should give you the options again

    the exact same thing just happened to me too. you can simply download a lock screen app with more shortcuts...

    I did everything written here, still don't have the + sign near short cuts, I have swipe, I have deleted 1 short cut to add another, I have english as my phone setting ...

    I don't have that "with swipe lock" check box, I can choose lock style as "swipe"

    I have a similar problem, but it's less that I don't get a + sign, and more that I just can't access the menu referenced here. I have a droid bionic on android 4.1.2 I believe, can widgets and such not be added to my lock screen? Thanks.

    "Password", or
    "None"

    In order to see "Lock Screen Options", configure "Lock Screen" to:
    Swipe, or
    Motion

    then you will see "Lock Screen Options"
    As said elsewhere, if you have 4 Icons defined, you will not see the "+" sign,
    One of the existing icons/shortcuts must be deleted first (press & hold, dragging it to the trash can icon).

    Hope this helps (FWIW, my carrier had to call Samsung to get this info for me)..
    Thanks much! That solved it for me!
