    Bypass Welcome Screen

    Hi, I work at an electronics store that deals Verizon phones and we just got a Droid 2 in! There have been a couple people interested already, but we were not able to give them a demonstration of the phone because of the welcome screen. I know that on the original Droid the welcome screen could be bypassed by pressing the corners of the screen starting at the top left and moving clockwise, but I have tried this on the Droid 2 several times and have not gotten it to work. Does anyone know of a way to bypass this so we can demo the Android OS?

    Thanks!

    These discussions are not allowed on Droid Forums, your best bet is to get ahold of Verizon or Motorola and let them solve your problem

    We can discuss rooting the phone, removing pre-installed SW, installing custom ROMs, editing build.prop, and installing/using custom recovery, themes, etc., but we can't discuss simply bypassing the welcome screen?

    That only skips activation and initial Google sign-in, IRRC - both of which are available afterwards regardless.

    Can someone explain why that would be? Makes no sense...like being told you can talk about robbing a bank, but you can't discuss stealing pens from their self-serve desks.

    Ah alright. I just figured that it would be okay since I found a bunch of old, non-closed threads on this site about bypassing the welcome screen on the original Droid. Sorry about that. I'll just ask my manager to contact Verizon.

    rooting and all that stuff isn't illegal. sure, it destroys your warranty but it's perfectly legal. if someone can not get past the welcome screen, how do you know the phone is not stolen?

    Thanks for the link...I'm not sure I agree w/the logic overall, but I understand the position and will respect it (your forum, your rules).
