On the previous version I could swipe left or right to start with my camera, or just unlock the phone. I just got the Ice Cream Sandwich update and now I can swipe up or down to access the dialer or my text messages. Can I customize this at all? I'd love to have more apps accessible from the lock screen, and I'd also like to change from the default text message program.

Depends entirely on what ROM your are running, it's not a feature that's usually available in stock ROMs as far as I know. If the feature is not there under settings, you just need to find a ROM for your phone that has that feature. –  bigbadonk420 Jul 3 '12 at 18:14
    
Cyanogenmod 9 has this feature. –  offby1 Jul 4 '12 at 16:35

Install WidgetLocker Locksscreen. Using it, you can put high no. of apps on lockscreen.

Do you need root for this app? I couldn't find confirmation either way. –  aslum Jul 4 '12 at 1:11

On the stock Verizon HTC Thunderbolt that just got the ICS update, you can access this capability by:

  • choosing the Personalize "paint palette" icon on the bottom of the home screen
  • choosing display from the bottom toolbar
  • selecting Lock Screen shortcuts.

It can be done in ICS.

  1. Go to Security under settings.
  2. Go into Screen Security Go into
  3. Shortcut Settings ... voila!

-1: I'm using ICS and I don't see this option. Under Screen Security I have three options Screen Lock, Owner Info and Allow Bluetooth Bypass. You got my hopes up. ): –  aslum Oct 3 '12 at 6:29

@bluecjh It might be useful to mention on what device/ROM the settings can be found here. –  onik Oct 3 '12 at 11:55
