    What text app are you using? I'm using Handcent and this is how i did it.

    Go into settings of HC and make it the default for both SMS and MMS. Then go into the stock app via Manage App and disable it. A warning will pop up about screwing something up and press ok anyway. Now Handcent will be default and appear on the lock

    Welcome to the forum! You should be good to go with what fasthair has suggested as it has worked for me as well.

    The nice thing I've also noticed about disabling the default text app is that I can reply to any text I receive even if it was sent to a group. Usually the group of people it was sent to would always get my replies if I didn't go out of the received message and just reply to the original sender. This fixed that as well. Now I only see the message as being sent by the sender, without the long list of names and numbers that the original sender sent it to!

    An easy way to change home screen defaults is with Default App Manager.

    I hate the stock camera, so I changed my default camera to Camera360 (using the mentioned app).

    FYI - I would not recommend disabling the ICS RAZR stock messaging app, at least if you use ChompSMS.

    When I disabled stock messaging on my wife's ICS RAZR MAXX, she was not able to receive text messages anymore, even after using the "Default App" app.

    After re-enabling her ICS stock messaging app, she could receive text messages just fine again (no other settings were changed).

    This is true. Not all 3rd party messaging apps run on their own and still require the stock messaging app in order to function. I can say that GOSms works perfectly fine with the stock messaging disabled (frozen with Titanium backup in my case).

    I can't get Google Voice to be there instead of stock text. I disabled stock txt app and used the app mentioned above and G Voice is set as default.

    I've gotten GoSMS to be the default texting app on the lock screen, but have been unable to get the Go Dialer on there. The only options I have for default phone apps are stock and skype. Any ideas why Go doesn't show up?
    If you find yourself in a fair fight.....your tactics stink!

    Running a rooted RAZR MAXX! Now on ICS

    This is the only thing I miss about my old HTC Rezound the 4 quick launch icons on the lock screen are customizable to any app you want. It's simple to change in the settings.

    A little off topic but the New Samsung Galaxy S3 is amazing. Its the smoothest fastest Android phone with the most beautiful resolution I have ever seen. I could not find any flaws with it... well 1 flaw in needs a bigger battery.

    Camera360 is much better than the stock camera.
