    So I have the OTA 2.1 update from Verizon, never rooted.

    When using the VU meter live wallpaper that comes with 2.1 and it's in the moto dock, and I get a pop up for a text message from handcent, sometimes my typing doesnt show up in the dialog box, but once I hit back, it is there, and also my wallpaper reverts back to the last non-live wallpaper I had.

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    Yes, I have the exact same problem with some of the live wallpapers and Handcent, the pop ups make it revert to the last non-live wallpaper.

    I usually switch between the VU meter when listening to music.

    Then the smoke one and the one with the red lines going across the screen.

    Someone else on the other forum said they contacted the developer and they told them to go to: Handcent > Settings > Popup Settings > and uncheck Blur Background. I just did it, it seemed to work so far.

    Even I have the blur background enabled, I am not having any issues with Handcent & Live Wallpaper that I just downloaded.

    I haven't used the pop up. I like my texts being discreetly in the notification menu until I can check them.

    same issue

    i have 2.1 and use the live wallpapers (ive tried a few of them) and when i get the popup from handcent, the soft keyboard dissappears, looks like the phone freezes, then everythings back to normal but i have my old (not live) wallpaper back.

    i unchecked the "blur background" and well see how it holds up. so far, i received one text, and the background reverted to the old one but only while i was typing the text. once i sent it and handcent was off the screen, my live wallpaper came back. thats acceptable lol

    I turned pop up off in handcent. I hated that it poped up with the last message. When I had a live wallpaper set I never had any problems with popup turned off, so I would try that.
