    I've had my DROID ERIS HTC for a month now and all of a sudden, I can't unlock my phone by dragging down.:mad: I have to tap the menu key. What's with that? Anyone else run into this? Collette

    Drag

    I think everyone that was unfortunate enough to d/l the update. I didn't and I'm fine.

    You have to actually grab the grey bar and pull down now. You can't do it anywhere on the screen anymore

    RE Lock screen

    Thanks! Why didn't I think of that seeing as that was what I thought in the first place when it wasn't the case. errrrr My fingers are too fast and they just weren't slowing down long enough to "see" that it was the grey bar that needed to be dragged. I wonder if another update will fix that. Not a big problem but I like to just slid my finger down the screen. Oh well! Guess I got spoiled!

    I love this forum! Thanks again!

    collette, maybe you should take your phone number out of your profile, just the brand or type of phone you have...;)

    If you take your battery out, then put it back in and boot it back up, you'll be able to slide your finger to unlock the phone...At least it worked for me, back to the ole way...lovin it
