I appreciate any help or similar stories on this if possible. I placed a phone call on my Droid yesterday, and the line was busy. I went to hang up, touched the End Call button and nothing happened. I tried again, and nothing on the screen would function. I turned the screen power off and on again, and still the screen did nothing, but it was still in the call. After a few minutes of still being in the call, I found I had no choice but to power it down using the power button and keyboard buttons.
Anyway, now the touch screen doesn't function at all. I plugged it into the USB on my computer, but I can't manage to sync anything because I can't use the touch screen to select the USB Mount on the Droid.
Anyway, I've removed the battery, the phone is charged, and as far as I can tell it all works except the touch screen. I can get to the screen to select a hard reset, but I'm not quite convinced that it's my only option yet. I'm hoping there are other people out there who have had this problem and I would appreciate not losing a lot of my texts and data if possible.
Any thoughts? I would love to just be able to mount it to my computer USB to copy whatever I need from it before trying the hard reset. Any way I can do that without being able to unlock the phone?
I'm thinking also it may be related to an app. I had just (maybe 20 minutes prior) installed the app called Miles, which is a card game based off Mille Bornes, the classic French card game. It has some apparent glitches in it, but I'm wondering how much that would affect the phone in general. Application failure? Also, is there any way to erase that app without being able to unlock my phone? I know the apps are stored online somewhere. I probably sound stupid. Any help is appreciated!
