    is there a way to display my name on the lockscreen of my ipad so that i can be contacted if i lose my ipad and someone finds it?

    is there a way to do that with the ipad software or an app?

    Thanks for help

    Lock screen image...

    You can screen capture any iPad screen displaying your info and make it your lock screen in about 30 seconds :)

    I use a photo i took and with a photo editor added "If found, please call ##########"
    Now my phone number is visable on the lock screen in portrait or landscape.

    Yeah. Real brilliant. Because if someone finds an iPad the first thing they'll think is, "I gotta return this to its rightful owner!"

    Sarcasm can be an effective tool when used correctly. You haven't.

    If someone who finds an iPad, or anything else of value for that matter, is inclined to keep it anyway and not try and find the rightful owner then whether or not the owner's name/address etc. is readily available makes no difference.

    If, and I believe this to be the case, there are many more people out there than your pessimism allows for who are inclined to make that attempt, then having your name and phone number in an obvious place, making it easier for them to find you is a smart, if not brilliant, idea. ;)

    If you have nothing constructive to say........don't say anything.

    Agreed, I can see this being especially useful in workplaces where a number of people have iPads, it would be easy to pick up the wrong one after a meeting.

    You made my point for me. Instead of putting your phone # and hope that a "good Samaritan" calls you, get an app that will give you the exact location of the iPad.
