    Any way I can have the name of the person who called me instead of just showing "Missed Call" on the lockscreen? Thanks.

    Mine is AT&T, and shows who called...if I receive more than one missed call, it just list the names.

    Do you have to use a different launcher for slidelock? does it work with fingerprint scanner?

    @redhat, so you mean it's network dependent? First time android user here. Thanks.

    My lock screen showed a missed text with my cousins name. Similar to Redhat's screenshot above. I'd think it would be the same as a missed call.

    Using stock, touch wiz. Fingerprint scanner turned on.

    On T-Mobile. USA.

    Sorry no screen shot, didn't think of it or if I can do one from the lock screen.

    That's what is beginning to look like. Is yours international?

    I've noticed this issue, I thought it was the same with text messages but there's an option to show preview in lock screen. If you have no security to unlock the phone it will show missed call then the number or contact under it but it seems if you have any kind of unlock security enabled such as fingerprint or pattern then is will just show "missed call" with "missed call" underneath, looks like they think if you've got a security unlock on then you don't want numbers to show, which is a bit poor, there should at least have an option to show it.. hopefully they'll fix this.

    Not 100% positive on this, but I think you need to have the phone # linked to a contact in your contact list for it to show you exactly WHO called you. If not, It'll just say "Missed Call".

    Your device will link the # to a contact in your contact list, IF you have a contact with that same number in your contact list/address book.

    Whew! I was beginning to think I was crazy. It worked just fine on my husband's phone. But, when I tried to fix the setting on a friend's phone, I couldn't get it to work. My husband has no security setting, and my friend does. Now it makes sense. Thanks.

    go to settings > application> all > badge provider> clear data & clear cache.

    Or

    Go to settings>>Applications manager>>all applications (on the top) locate the badge provider app, once in there clear data and restart your phone.

    Has anyone tried using DashClock and widget for this? Here is DashClock: DashClock - Play Store

    And the extension that displays the call log: DashClock DashCallLog ext - Play Store

    Not sure if you can filter out which calls are displayed (e.g. incoming, outgoing and missed), but it seems to display nicely.
