    Power Button

    so my OG droid is literally on its last leg. Now it decided to conch out and the power button is not working. its worn down and is stuck. My warranty expired in July. Is there anything I can do to save my OG droid till my upgrade in march? Please let me know!
    Thanks!

    Oh man the infamous power button issue. I've had 3 droids do the same exact thing -_- lucky I pay the warranty thing each month so they replace it. Well if you are rooted I know that most CM7 roms have the volume rocker wake so that you can use that too wake it. Also in the droid hacking section in simply stunning there is a topic about this, they were talking about remapping buttons. but good luck I hope you can fix this annoying issue

    lol thanks, I've had 6 droids, but none had this problem, I was so sad lol. I went to verizon to see if they could fix the button, but they said it was so worn out and really dug in there; that they couldn't do anything However, I switched over to the Droid Pro yesterday afternoon. I'm just worried that the power button on this on will deteriorate also. hopefully not.

    I really hate the power button issue, i'm afraid my current droid is about to experience this issue.again. But I wish you luck with your droid pro. I don't think it would experience it, I think Motorola has addressed it with their newer phones because I remember the reading the X did the same thing.

    No problem! How is the droid pro? i've always wondered if it was good I remember wanting it when it came out because it had a better keyboard. and will do! I really hope it doesn't sink in again it's bad enough 3 of my droids have done it already

    the droid pro is ok, still getting used to. Its definitely way different, i love the keyboard, but cannot stand the virtual one its kinda in the way when you want to text because both keyboards come up. The screen is smaller if not the same size. but the amount if memory on here is amazing! Over all, its an alright phone. lol
