    alright, i've tried, i really have. but i'm not a big fan of the this new lock screen. i'm sorry. i know i've been saying that there's nothing wrong with the update, that it doesn't screw anything up, but i was wrong. this new lock screen is horrible. i can't stand it. i think we should start a petition to get our old lock screen back. i can't believe this, what a way to ruin a phone, thanks google.

    i'm going to start a facebook support group and an online petition, who's with me!?

    Whadda !!! :032:question lol

    what is it that you don't like ?
    I like the fact that the clock is bigger and more bold
    as far as the rest of it goes ... I don't see any problems with it. Am I missing something ?

    Not sure what the issue is with the lock screen... the font is different and a bit off-center, and the swipe is a straight across instead of circular... sure the old lock screen was perhaps more aesthetic, but the new one is hardly horrible or ruinous...

    I'll sign your petition, though, if you post a link... ;)

    check the tags i entered for the post. :dft012:wink

    i do miss the "unlock wheel" very much. it sort of had that retro rotary dial feel to it. i really dug it.

    Good thing you didnt forget that L in clock LMAO.

    As for the unlock screen isnt there a way you could customize the lock screen? so that it looks the way u want jester? or do none of them let you choose how to slide the screen?

    yeah, i do really like the new clock. i like how it's off center and the font is cool.

    it's mostly the slide lock i don't like. it was actually a tiny bit easier for me to unlock the phone with the old one. the arc to the motion.

    hahahahahahaha, at first glance that's actually what i read. you can see where my mind is. not that it's there often... i mean i don't think about... ah, forget it.

    no joy, DF. the only option i see is to install a lock screen app. but none of the ones i've found really do it for me.

    Options?

    This to me is indicative of all the minor problems with the phone that quickly stack up....it's 2010....this is a new phone OS - why not lets us CHOOSE the lock interface we want to see?

    Wow! There's an idea? Options, choices, I mean - would it really be that hard?

    actually, you can change the lock screen. there are several apps int he market that allow you to customize the lock screen and give you other options.

    i just specifically miss the only rotary style unlock slide.

    I want the old one back as well. I came here to search for an app to get it back but it might be unavailable. Gonna go to the store tomorrow.

    I have noticed that if you open the keyboard first then it feels ok ... wonder if that was what google was thinking ? Still tho the curved unlock slider is more natural. It would be nice if they would leave the new clock and bring back the old unlock slide !!!
