On your last podcast, you mentioned that you can put a message on your lock screen to contact the owner if the phone is lost.  Do you have a tutorial for that?  I was not able to watch your podcast live and so missed the ‘after program show’.  I have learned so much from you two…. thanks so much!

Great question – so I decided to write up a tip for it. Check out Tip075 – How to add contact info on Android phone lock screen. If your phone is not an Android, check out the links under “Learn More” in the article.
