    Please try this... Go to the market, search for Live Wallpapers. There are two possible results based on a local poll I did. The first is 211 results, the second is 394. My experiment involved Moto Droids in the 309 area code the phones that got the 211 result were purchased from Verizon directly, the 394 group were not... Any ideas as to what would be causing this? I would have done this as a poll but I'm not authorized to create one yet...

    394, bought it from a Verizon store in 520.

    Does this have anything to do with some phones being rooted and being able to see some nexus-only wallpapers or something?

    Ok, just checking. Maybe the people with lower results are still on 2.0.1? Doubt it with the update notification coming up so often.
