    Glitch or normal? I just noticed it. I can't use the phone when its plugged in charging. Just noticed since I got the update.

    As soon as I unplug it, I can use it normally.

    I can use my defy fine while charging, I am on official 2.1 , try an appkiller to kill all running apps and then try to unlock when charging as maybe an app is causing you problems.

    If the phone was powered off, then attached to a charger and charging, then I can not power on the phone for use. This is true for some of my other Motorolas and Nokias. However if the phone was powered on, and then attached to a charger and charging, then I have always been able to use it.

    With a little help from other android forums, it turns out it was because I was using a cheap aftermarket wall charger that I bought for a different phone. Even tho it was the same plug, the phone must be sensitive to charging voltage (similar to my Garmin.) I plugged in my genuine motorola charger and it works fine now.
