    Really don't understand what it does.

    Hey Scott, you rock!

    The 4 lines allow you to type to the end of each line;However only 2/3rds of rack of the 4 lines is visible on the lock screen. So if you lose it, is the finder to assume the last third of each line they cannot see? I wanted the last line to inform the finder that it is does not call or text and useless as a phone & possibly the IMEI is registered to Delta. Why allow so much to be typed on a line and then cut it off. Even just my 1st name has 10 characters. I want my email and phone # if a passenger finds it while I am flying for 4 days. Also my base, dept # & PPR # if found by a Delta employee.i fly International and wanted to add this is the property of Delta and does not call or text and is useless for jailbreaking......BTW: This happens in lots of South Amercan cities with found non-Delta phones. HAPPYi don't. Know how to also add info in Spanish! Basically, make the lines' length that will actually show on the screen. Thanks
