    Question Droid Sleep/Power button broken

    I need a quick resolution for this problem. It's what the title says, my sleep/power button on my droid is now lodged inside the phone and makes it very difficult to power the screen on and off. Should I .sbf back to 2.1 and take it in and try and get a replacement or should I simply revert to a stock ESE81 nandroid that is on my phone's sd now and then take it to them?

    i would go to stock to make your life easier but how hard did you push the button in so it did that?

    this might not even go under insurance if it is under warranty

    I have the same exact problem as the OP and I didnt cause it. One day I went to unlock my screen and the Power Button just fell in. Hopefully verizon will replace it, once i go back to stock 2.1.

    Funny thing is, I didn't even press it hard. My buddies droid did the same thing not to long ago. I've had the Droid since November and have taken great care of it, always had a screen protector and a hard case on it. No scratches or anything. I'll just .sbf back to stock 2.1 and go up to my local Verizon store and see if my warranty will replace it.

    I didn't know it was that easy to break! I will be more careful with my powerbutton usage now...

    I'm kinda sad actually, I mean I treat my Droid like a princess and now that this happened to it I feel like a lost kid in Walmart.

    *Bump*

    Problem was solved by Verizon today. All I did was .sbf back to 2.01 unrooted and then did the manual 2.1 update-1 from Verizon and take the phone back to them. They said they had never "encountered" the problem and would have to warranty the phone. They have no idea how bad I'm going to wreck this new Droid.

    yeah, I also had this problem. I unrooted and took my droid into verizon an they gave me a new phone. It was refurbished but still, they took care of it an didn't cost me anything.
