    I restarted my phone and was watching the boot process when I noticed the Windows Phone splash screen after the HTC and Verizon logos. Apparently the OS is already booted so I was able to capture it as a screenshot and set it as my lockscreen. I think it looks nice so I thought id share.

    I'm referring to a light blue screen with "Windows Phone" in white in the middle.

    Apologies if this has been posted already. I searched with no results.

    Also, I haven't used any other Windows phone yet so I dont know if this works on others. Let me know below!

    I'm not sure how to do that from the WPC app but I will as soon as I get home.

    Do other phones have the ability to grab a screenshot during boot?

    Not bad at all, and the dark shade on the top gives it an even better look.
