    Default Anybody tired of the Sense lockscreen?

    Here ya go.. After using this for awhile, it works fantastic. One thing, if you use lock sounds, you must turn them off in sound settings. Then in the options for Widget Locker you can enable them. Or else it will sound haywire lol.

    I just eliminated the lock screen with Lock Delay.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    LG G3 on Sprint. [Stumped and Bumped, Debloated, Startup apps managed, Trickster, Nova Prime, Swiftkey, G3 Tweakbox]--> Runs smooth as silk, now.

    I like it a lot, especially in conjunction with Power Strip set up to to the long press search button. Controlling music, podcasts, audible, etc, while locked is awesome.

    I do have issues with it though. After its been locked for awhile, it will unlock to an all black screen, and I won't be able to do anything. This could be LauncherPro related, or the quick reply on ChompSMS. I'm not sure...

    Does the lock screen engage on an incoming call? In other words, if you phone is locked and a call comes in, do you see the lock screen or just the option to answer or decline the call?

    Sometimes its the HTC answer phone slide, and sometimes there's 2 buttons for answer and decline. I prefer the buttons, but both work fine. I just don't especially like the randomness of it.

    I've only ever seen the "slide up for decline, down to answer" thing if the phone is locked.

    I think the the answer/decline buttons only show up if the phone is active.

    At least that's what I've noticed. I've never seen the buttons if the phone is in a locked state.

    That's possible, but I swear I've seen the buttons when I pull it out my pocket...I dunno.

    I was getting sick of the sense lockscreen to so I got locker. After froyo I really felt like it was slowing my phone down so I went back to normal I will use it again once they release an update with some sort of speed improvement

    This is the correct behaviour. Mine does the same. Buttons when active, slide down when locked.

    Can do the same with Widget Locker, and it's much more customizable then No Lock.

    Do you (or anyone else) know of a way to have the red / green buttons come up even if the screen is locked? Or do I just need to get one of the lock screen disable apps?

    To me they are two different apps.

    Widget Locker just happens to have the no lock feature built into it. Doesnt Widget Locker allow you to customize the lock screen with widgets as well as access them when the phone lock is on? To where as the No Lock app strictly just removes the lock feature?

    I've been using this app for a couple of weeks now and absolutely LOVE it. Much better than most other lockscreen replacements (all IMO of course).

    Yes with Widget Locker you can add widgets and interact with them. You can also add more sliders to the screen as well. No Lock, and Widget Locker are two completely different programs.

    Got Widget Locker after reading this thread and love it. It does cause Sense to reboot once or twice a day, but I still think its great.

    Really? You might wanna look into other causes. I'm have not experienced one reset with Sense. Also go through the settings of Widget Locker to see.. Or try this forum for some help on it.

    Sounds like a great App but this thread got a little off topic so I split out a few posts into a new thread HERE

    I am going to move this thread over to the Apps forum so we can share with all the other Androids...Cool

    Later,

    I wish they had a trial version of WidgetLocker especially since it's so new. I really like trying an app out before I buy it.

    Seriously, there has to be a way to remove the sense lockscreen and go straight to the Android code or pattern lock. It is redundant to have to do both. I would like the choice among all of them, but it makes no sense (pardon the pun) to swipe down on the screen to remove the sense lock and then put in your code or pattern.
