    I downloaded about 30 live Wallpapers. When I click live Wallpaper, the list appears for about ten seconds, then the screen reverts to my home page. Suggestions?

    I doubt you could have too many live wallpapers but it's possible. Have you deleted them and made sure that there's not an issue with the phone itself?

    It may just be that one of the LW you have is causing the crash. Did you download/update any of them just before this began?

    30? I can barely find 5 or 6 that I like. Most of them suck.

    I prefer to have my battery last than have some dancing picture for a second every time I open my phone

    LW's hardly put a dent in the battery on the N2.

    Maybe on a single core processor the battery would take a hit but battery consumption by a live wallpaper on a quad core processor will be very minimal;)

    Good to know. I was trying so many things to eliminate battery usage trying to see how far I could go with it. Even went with a black background to cut screen use

    I am now getting a pop up screen that says "Wallpaper picker is not working" and then the screen goes black for a few seconds and then my home screen appears. Any ideas what is wrong?
