    Foxcat, I haven't heard anything back yet from the cell phone repair store. Sounds like the odds are against me. I'll update when I find out more

    Well, I'm still pulling for you. Like I said, don't trash that phone. Flash RAM can keep data for something like between 5 and 10 years as indicated by general concensus. If between now and a couple years from now you can find a duplicate of your phone real cheap from eBay, one of us here or somewhere else may be willing/able to desolder the SD card on the failed board and supplant it onto the new one. Of course, there is no guarantee it will work, but that's your best shot, I believe.

    screen is fixed. The phone is stuck in it's reboot mode. Cell phone repair place is seeing a lot of this on Droid minis. They said it happens when a new version of software is down loading. The phone just crashes and can't be recovered unless you factory reset the phone which would erase all data including pictures. The reason, they said, that you can't just take out the mother board and put it into a new devise is that the new devise would boot up the same as this one, locked in the reboot screen. Unreal.

    holding down volume and then power I can get into a menu to reboot, recover, re set to factory and a couple other options. Tried all of them, factory reset by mistake, and nothing happens. just returns to droid reboot screen and locks up there. There has to be something I can do

    Got to speak to Level 2 tech support at Motorola. Got me into a screen using the volume up/down and power button. I used all options even the factory reset by mistake and nothing happened. Just back to the Droid screen. Next, letting battery die for 48 hours and plug in

    Well, still pulling for you. I wish there was something I could do. I don't like that people lose prescious memories on their phones. It's a shame.
