It sounds like you did not once do a factory reset.
Your problems sound you just did a hard reboot of the phone evey time.
A full factory reset would bring back the setup pages and stock background each time.
Turn your phone off
Hold the vol up and down buttons then tap the power button
Use Vol down to highlight recovery and Vol up to select it
Once your in factory recovery press the hard buttons to get the menu to pop up.
Use Vol up or down to highlight the wipe data/factory reset and then the power button to select it. let that run. Should take a few minutes
Then select wipe cache using the same buttons.
Now your phone is completely fresh ics with no remnants of the old crap.
If that doesn't work, call Verizon and tell them your power button does not work and get a new phone.
If you still can't do the last option, then i have to congratulate you on being able to troll so many people for so long.
