    Final straw!

    I am NOW officially DONE with this *****g phone! the touch screen has been freaking out like crazy! its annoying! the screen has a mind of its own. I just performed a factory data reset and NOTHING. next step wipe SD card. and SBF back to whatever crappy version to make it stable. I dont have insurance on this thing (long story) any advice? im about a day from turning this into a Frisbee... 10001 pieces of droid on the wall


    *** edit ***
    just wiped the SD card, i thought about going into the bootloader and wiping the cache, but i cant, the damn search key wont respond... so the bootloader doesnt do diddly squat!

    Ouch. Bring it to a vzw store and show them it, they usually just quickly ship out a replacement. There are horror stories, yes, but if you think about it, only the lemons get reported. Not many report the good refurbs. Honestly, the refurb I got (and sent back) was perfectly fine, except the previous owner had loosened the usb port. Nothing a diy'er can't fix.

    i need to UNroot it and remove the custom boot animation then, and mind you i HATE dealing with verizon reps, let alone customer service. to be honest, i wouldnt mind crossing to the dark side, and getting an Iphone 4/4s. i will leave droid temporarily and come back when its all on ICS lol. im just frustrated.

    Check FAQ on how to SBF back, and the once you SBF back, you will need to wipe the cache, and for a Factory Reset, and you will be good to go. It sounds to me like you got a little water in your phone. If that did happen, I wouldn't bring it up at the VZW store. Good Luck, and fell free to PM me if you get lost, or need help.
    If you need any help, feel free to PM me, I'm glad to help where I can!

    Rain outside will do it. I'm not talking about a lot of water. Even a quarter of a drop of water will cause this in the right spot. The method to fixing this is quite cheap and easy actually. Put your phone in a big or rice, and let it sit in there over night and see if that helps. Also, did you do ANYTHING at all to the phone before this started happening? Both physically and software.

    Do you have a screen protector on it? Mine started freaking out, took it off and was much better. Also, if you were on GB then ofc the search key didnt do anything. They changed it to using the volume buttons (hold both down where you would have pressed search).

    I've had a screen protector on this thing since day one out of the box. hell, it had one on there before it was ever turned on. i used the OEM protectors from Verizon. Needless to say, I'm gonna SBF to whatever version i can, make it look stock and take it in to Verizon to ***** them out. i checked the water indicator and its normal so its not gonna show signs of foul play or tampering. the SD card is clean and so will the phone, it will just look like its OEM. Its been a great phone the whole time since last Christmas... until this week. damn it. i will see if i can get them to replace it outright, none of this refurbished crap, new or im gone. I will try the rice thing tonight, or tomorrow. i can twist arms if need be thanks for the heads up themib frustration at its worst I will see if i can get a new phone all together, convince my finance to put it on our credit and pay it off. might get the galaxy nexus or an iphone or the razr
