    Default Lock screen widgets? ICE emergency numbers?

    Upgraded to ics. How do I get widgets onto the lock screen? I thought we were supposed to be able to access the camera or other apps from the lock screen. And how do I add additional emergency numbers to the lock screen? The thing they call ICE.

    Look under groups in your contacts and look for ICE emergency contacts. Up date this to the numbers that you want someone to call. If your phone is found by someone they will be able to call who ever you have listed there. It takes a little while for it to update this.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried what you said and there is nothing titled ice in the contacts group. At least, not on my phone!

    Have you up graded your phone to the new ice cream sandwich update? Here is a screen shot of mine.

    It's not there!
    If I could figure out how to post a screenshot I would show you. the screenshot is dim in the clipboard, so I can't select it.
    Before ics, when I captured a screen, it went into a gallery folder called ScreenCapture. Now it goes into a gallery folder called screenshots.

    It's the 'Contacts' (orange) icon ... not the telephone icon.

    Go to the phone icon
    Click on Contacts
    Your new screen will read Phone Groups Contacts Favourites
    Click on Groups
    ICE is the first option under Integrated Groups

    Thank you. I didn't know how to add numbers to ICE. Seemed so complicated but once I went through the steps shown here it worked just fine. I added 2 contacts to my ICE and they show up when you drag the red cross on the lock screen.

    OK, I did the factory reset and it fixed my problems. I now have the ICE choice in the groups menu. Screen capture storage is fine now too. I was even having trouble with backing up with Kies. It would freeze, saying it was pairing even after leaving it for hours. Now it backs up in like 10 seconds!

    The easy way to do it....
    go in to contacts
    go in to groups
    add group
    type 'ICE' as group name
    add contact details now or later( doesn't matter)
    select 'done'

    you should now see that you have a new group called ICE-emergency contacts
    when you are on the key lock screen, select emergency numbers
    select the symbol of a person with an emergency light
    your contacts should now be displayed B-)

    I tried this without joy. For some reason, after adding an ICE group, it doesn't show up. Not sure why.

    It is there, since if I try and add it again, it says that the "Group name already in use".

    EDIT Although it initially didn't show up in my Groups from the Contact page of one of my contacts, I was able to find it on the Groups page. After adding a contact to that group there, it showed up on in the initial place I looked.
