    This is the first I've heard of a physical button failure. Consider warranty replacement?

    The phone was released in November 2009 -- everyone who has one is still under the manufacturers 1-year warranty.

    It does, but since that can all be undone, it doesnt really matter.

    Reflash the SBF -- there are stickies in the forums. Easy enough.

    Yeah, it's in one of the stickies, I'll find it in a bit.

    And yes, you'll likely get a CLNR Refurb.

    I just went through the same process, and after a really crappy CLNR and an explanation that I'm 2500 miles from home and in need of a good phone, they bumped me up to a NIB Droid 2.

    Um so I thought only changing roms voided the warranty not changing sbf. Cause I just reflashed the back up I made when I rooted and sent it back for a replacement. Had a problem with eratic screen.

    Thats funny, when I set it to unlock any press on either the camera button or up or down volume will turn the display on to whichever homescreen was displayed when i shut it off

    Edit. Don't mean to insult your intelligence, but when you start no lock, you are presented with a pic of a closed lock which says "Locking Enabled". You need to press this so it shows a pic of an open lock and says "Locking Disabled" Then it should allow the above mentioned buttons to lite up the phone.
