    i have a Moto Droid1, with no roms or anything installed on it.
    Starting probably 3 weeks ago my phone starting freezing really easily
    and instead of prompting me to force close a program it would just freeze
    the screen would stay on for hours, unless i did a battery pull

    when ever i tried restarting it, it would start fine but the touch screen wouldnt
    respond that it was being touched, so i couldnt swipe to open it or anything.

    i sort of found a weird fix around that though, i found when the phone was
    starting if you started doing the slide to unlock while it was still on the
    eyeball then when the next screen loaded it would already be unlocked and
    would work (weird i know)

    i eventually did a complete cache and factory hard reset yesterday, so
    now its on the original "touch the android to begin" and thats as far as it
    will go, i can touch it a 1000 times and nothing will happen
    is there anything i can do to fix this


    o yea something else thats awesome, ok so i get my upgrade in less than a month and my droid breaks officially yesterday so i go up to verizon to put my number onto an older verizon phone, but since the phone doesnt have internet im not using the data plan, so in a month when i do get my new smart phone IM NOT GOING TO HAVE UNLIMITED DATA
    what kind of **** is that, ive been paying for unlimited data for almost 2 years and a month before my upgrade my phone breaks and now im reduced to the stupid 2gb allowance

    im pissed.

    mine did the same thing - og droid, touch screen fizzled out on me on one side of the screen so i couldnt unlock my phone, work around is to use a magnet - see tutorial on youtube how to put your phone into navigation mode with magnet - it bypasses the unlock. not sure if this will help your situation now but once your screen is shot, you need a new phone - ive been without for about 3 weeks now and waiting for the bionic to come out so i can upgrade

    i tried with a couple of magnets, didnt work at first and was like this is BS but i eventually found a semi powerful one on my fridge that did the trick - i have to rotate my phone so the apps i want to use lay in the area where the screen works, annoying as hell so i basically render my phone as useless
