    well your email is already showing on the image you posted, so they can just email you when they turn it on . .now anyone who reads this post can start sending you spam mail.

    maybe the picture being used can be edited in paint and you could put the ph number just above your head

    lol, I'd be surprised if the OP was the real Steven Sinofsky, and if he was, he wouldn't be coming here to try and figure that out. Steven Sinofsky - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you log in with a Live ID, the e-mail address tied to that account is displayed as shown in your screen shot. If your using a local account login that's why its not shown on your PC.

    Not that I am aware of. You could make your own custom Lock Screen image with that info added with a image editor.
