    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?

    It's not my Forum at all, it is our Forum, and this is one of the ways that it is kept on the up and up, and as members we have a responsibility to help keep it that way :)

    It won't be less stolen, but we are not going to help someone use something they stole. I'm not saying this OP stole it.

    Does that make sense?

    It's not...but there is no need to help the process along by offering further assistance

    And you know this how? And how is this question anymore likely the actions of a thief then any other question on this forum? I'm not trying to be an ass I just genuinely don't see what the issue is? ???

    If there is even a hint that someone got the phone thru improper channels then they will not be helped on this issue

    In the case of the OP here. He said he worked at an electronics store so he can call verizon and ask them.

    My outlook is this---and this is only my point of view---if it is yours, and you cannot bypass the lock/activation screen, then take it to where you bought it from and get some help, because even if you are involved in the most legit scenario possible, the next person that comes along and reads how to bypass and unlock these devices (who can't take them to an authorized dealer) might not be

    Not to say that we can stop people from stealing or the like but we don't have to promote it or even engage in the conversation-there is a very fine line and in my opinion we should just avoid it

    Imagine this---

    I just stole this Droid X, how do I unlock it---

    just go to Droid Forums, they can tell you---

    ----That sounds ridiculous

    Thankfully, this is not that kind of Community

    Sorry, we simply are not going to discuss getting past the lock screen. That's not done in the Droid Forums.

    This thread is. :closed_2:
