    The slider screen on my Droid can't be used because I can't get pass the slider unlock screen. When I try to slide it over, it pops right back. Any way to reset phone that I'm not aware, such as a reset button or something? NO, battery pull doesn't help and NO, I can't get to a menu of any kind. PLEASE HELP!!!

    The slider lock won't slide all the way across the screen to unlock the phone? That's a new one by me. Just letting you know you're not forgotten. I'd suggest searching through and then (if needed) cross-posting this issue either in the RS Incredible section or over on the sister site:

    Thanks for responding. Yeah, I've posted on several forums and have not had one other person to have had the same problem - much less how to solve it. It's actually my brothers' and I told him I would try to fix it for him. I believe he's already purchased another phone. I was hoping to have it fixed and keep it for myself. Could always use another paper weight I guess...

    I know the feeling. If the phone is less than a year old Verizon should replace it since there's a 1-year MFR warranty on it.

    Hard Reset

    have you tried the keystroke method of a hard factory reset?
    here is a link:
    How to Hard reset the HTC Aria - HTC Aria

    if it is unusable you have very little to loose and it might just work.
