    Droid 1 will not activate

    I've tried everything I can think of. I sbf'ed back to 2.2, and now it will not activate. When I try to activate, it says "your phone has been programmed successfully, and then takes me right back to the screen with the android and "touch the android to begin". I just can't figure it out!

    Do you have service on the phone or are you just going to be using it on WiFi?

    If you touch the corners of the screen in succession you can bypass that screen. At the "android to begin" screen, hit the top left corner, then top right, bottom right and bottom left, and it should bypass that screen so you can see what's going on.

    Re: Droid 1 will not activate

    You need to take it to a corporate Verizon store. They are going to be able to get it reactivated for you.

    Maybe you need a new sim card?
