    Did you ever get a solution to not having the + sign to add shortcuts to the lock screen on you Samsung S3.
    I've got the same problem. I deleted one. Now only have three but the + sign is not appearing.

    I just got a new S3 mini and accidentally deleted one of the icons (before I realized that by pressing it I could easily change the app). Now I too am stuck with only 3 since I do not have a + icon.

    I've been searching high and low in GOOGLE, but as of yet I've not seen a solution.

    Is there a solution for this? This is definitely a bug, is it not?

    sometimes it is under security then press screen lock and change it from flick to something else than back it should give you the options again

    I don't have that "with swipe lock" check box, I can choose lock style as "swipe"

    I have a similar problem, but it's less that I don't get a + sign, and more that I just can't access the menu referenced here. I have a droid bionic on android 4.1.2 I believe, can widgets and such not be added to my lock screen? Thanks.

    "Lock Screen" is the screen at: "Settings" -> "Lock Screen"
    However, "Lock Screen Options" is not an option if the Lock Screen is defined to be:
    "Password", or

    In order to see "Lock Screen Options", configure "Lock Screen" to:
    Swipe, or

    then you will see "Lock Screen Options"
    As said elsewhere, if you have 4 Icons defined, you will not see the "+" sign,
    One of the existing icons/shortcuts must be deleted first (press & hold, dragging it to the trash can icon).

    Hope this helps (FWIW, my carrier had to call Samsung to get this info for me)..
    Thanks much! That solved it for me!
