    Is there a way to force your Droid to restart? Sometimes mine will freeze up and I have to remove the battery, then put it back in to get it working again... I know on the the iPhone you can hold the two buttons and it will restart. Is there a way to do it on the Droid? Like... "Power Button + Camera" or something?

    Not even holding down the Power button will let you restart? That's the only way I know

    Battery pull is currently the only way to force a restart.
