Maybe it's just the fascinate then, it's stupid anyway. Having some mechanical looking lock would be cool, something that actually plays an unlocking animation.
Since I'm about to get one...(Best Buy will have them for free with 2year contract tomorrow only) and I've hated the puzzle lock screen look, I did some digging around and came across this:http://www.androidzo...creen_hxov.html
It's $2 but I think I might have to get it. This site is what lead me to the app above. They also talk about a glass swipe option and connect the dots for the lock on the fascinate that might be worth a shot for you:http://androidforums...lockscreen.html
Also...today I saw this on Engadget:
The Fascinate's ride at the top of Sammy's Android lineup for Big Red might be a short one -- a very short one. Feast your eyes on this monster, said to be the rumored SCH-i400 Continuum, whose biggest claim to fame would be the addition of a secondary OLED display below the main. What might you use it for? Well, it's called the "Ticker," and it'll show notifications and RSS updates (and judging from that picture, weather conditions, too). Naturally, one of the selling points is that you can access basic phone functionality and information without having to fiddle with the normal UI or turn on that big, power-sapping primary display; in fact, the Ticker will automatically turn on when you grasp the bottom of the phone. The Continuum's also got a microSD slot on the side (accessible without a battery pull) and a dedicated camera button, and judging from one of the shots we've got, it might be Galaxy S-branded.
Looks pretty cool, but I'm not waiting another month...so done with my iPhone 3G.
