    Default Wife is new to S5...have some questions

    Is there ANY way that she can add widgets to her lockscreen like I was able to do on my S4?
    Also, I'd like her to have the Google/KitKat Dialer instead of the Sammy Dialer. Is this possible?

    I'm ok to root if necessary. Thanks.

    Samsung disabled the Lockscreen widgets, why?, nobody knows for sure, some guests that it was for something related to teh Fingerprint but who knows?

    So, what I did was tried C Locker and in record time (5 minutes) I was buying the full version, but if you just want some widgets and features, free version may be good enough.

    Look for one of my Threads (look at my profile) where I explained about C Locker.

    The Google Dialer, like the one Nexus phones get? If so, this is easy to do and since you're comfortable with rooting the phone, try this
