    Default Cant get owner info on lock screen..

    Like the title says. I lost my Galaxy Nexus and had to rush around changing passwords because i didnt have the phone secured with a lock. This time i want to use a pattern lock but cant get my info to show on the lock screen. Any one else have this problem??

    I assume you mean you want to get your owner info text to display on the lockscreen.

    You can normally just select Settings/Security/owner info then enter whatever text you want it to show, and set the enable at the top of that screen to Show owner information on Lockscreen.

    That's odd. I just set mine up and it worked right away. Maybe try a reboot before or after the process is complete to see if that'll help.

    Sorry I didn't get back earlier. I found the problem but it really isn't a problem. When I was trying to get my contact info on the lock screen the other night I had my phone plugged in to recharge. While plugged in the Galaxy Nexus doesn't show your contact info on the lock screen but the charge percentage. When I unplugged my phone the next morning there was my contact info where it is supposed to be.

    I know that this is an old thread. I just signed in so I could say: PEOPLE! Note the way the person who opened the thread came back to update with the solution (sort of) please remember to do the same when you have a post out there and find the answer. There is nothing worse than wasting your time reading a thread that just ends with no solution. If YOU like finding answers, remember to do the same for others. This is the voice of your conscience speaking! Lol! Actually its good karma, but if you don't buy into that, it's just the right thing to do.
