    This is where the design of the Droid really stands out. Fortunately for you, the droid was made with very sturdy materials. This, in turn, has made the droid heavier than most other phones.

    Take your phone, hold it very tightly in your hand, and proceed to beat your friend senseless with the Droid.

    Report back and let us know how things turn out.

    Well, does getting back into Gmail help in any way? I'm thinking there must be a way to reset your Gmail password, but not sure how that would help you.

    There must be a way to hardware reset your phone. I'm thinking powering it back on while having the keyboard open and holding down the X should be able to boot you into a different mode, but not sure exactly what sequence you need to do here.

    if it happened to me, I would do 1 of 2 things

    1) Post here and ask, like you did, and hopefully not get a funny reponse, which is what I did. If you stop here, you'll just have to wait until someone gives you a legit response.

    2) take it to a Verizon store and explain your situation. There must be a way to manually reset the phone.

    In all seriousness you should really yell at your friend. Thats not cool.

    other ppl have done this in here. do a search then pm them to see the fix. even if i knew i wouldn't tell because how do i know this phone isn't stolen? take it to verizon and get it fixed.
