    Default Disable Stock Text app to get GOSMS On lock screen

    I found out if you disable the stock text message application and have a secondary text messaging app like GOSMS installed ICS will put it in its place.
    See screenshot.

    That is awesome. This maybe a way to change all the icons with 3rd party apps. You may want to edit your post with detailed instructions im sure this is going to be gold mind information.

    How do you disable the stock messaging app?

    Just a guess but settings > apps > all > text messaging > disable

    Still would like a way to put other apps in without rooting though

    And does this only work on ICS or does it work on Gingerbread too? Is this a new ICS feature?

    As far as I know, this is only available through ICS, seeing as that this particular lock screen is a feature only on ICS.

    Right, I didn't so much mean JUST for the lockscreen though. I mean in general. Cause I use GO SMS and sometimes I get a notification from them AND the stock messaging app. so it would be cool to know if on Gingerbread, I could disable it and have it stop doing that.

    Ah, I see. It's worth trying. I would try it out for you, but I'm already on ICS. I can't imagine it being any different, though. Disabling the Text Messaging app should stop the notifications, and if it used to ask which of the two to use by default, it should just automatically go to GO SMS as well.

    By the time I get it all figured out, ICS will probably download. Not that i'd complain...

    In gingerbread you have to go into the stock text messaging application and hit the menu button and find the settings and turn off the notifications to stop being notified by it too.

    I have used Go SMS Pro for the last couple years... great app... but I uninstalled it prior to ICS just to see what Google did with the stock text messaging app... I'm very happy with the stock and will not load Go SMS Pro, at least for a while.

    What did you like about it specifically? Cause I WANT to like stock applications/features simply to cut down on what I have downloaded. Thanks in advance.

    It's much easier to read... here is a screenshot I took after removing the number.

    That looks awesome! Very clean and classy. Maybe I will give it a solid shot too. Do you use Swype at all on ICS? If so, how accurate and efficient is that?

    Personally, I only use Swype since I got my Maxx... never had any issues with it... it's always been very accurate and efficient.

    I only tried swype briefly and didn't like it. Had gone with Go Keyboard for a while but am a new convert to SwiftKey 3. It predicts and corrects as if it was reading my mind!!!

    Hey Everyone,
    I am new to this site and I have a Droid Razr. When it gets ICS I would love to use the +textPlus app instead of the native Verizon Texting App in the lock screen... and I was wondering, if this is possible, and can you provide specific instructions on how to do this? Oh, and do you have to be Rooted to do this? Sorry if I am repeating the same questions. I don’t have ICS yet, so I don’t know how to do this. I just want to be ready for when ICS arrives to my device. Thanks,

    Sorry, I just did now. But do you need to be rooted to change the texting app on the lock screen? Thanks,

    I use Go SMS so that I can set customized text tones for certain contacts, and set Twitter SMS text updates to silent. Will I be able to do this with the stock SMS app?

    No. You do not have to be rooted. And CDF3 no you will not be able to do that with the stock sms.
