    Got off the plane, turned on my Driod X and no home sccreen and not menus. The phone picked up my email and text messages. But I can not access any programs. I can answer if someone calls and I can respond to an incoming text message but I can not start one. I have restart numerous times and pulled the battery several of those times. Anyone have any ideas how I can get out of this? I am a long ways from any Verizon store.

    3. [FONT=&quot]Press Search hard key to show the Android recovery menu.[/FONT]
    4. [FONT=&quot]Tap to select "wipe data/factory reset" (you can also use Volume buttons to scroll up or down in this menu)[/FONT]
    5. [FONT=&quot]Press Menu hard key under "Ok" screen prompt (camera button can also be used to confirm selection)[/FONT]
    6. [FONT=&quot]Handset will ask you to "Confirm wipe of all user data"[/FONT]
    7. [FONT=&quot]Select "Yes -- delete all user data"[/FONT]
    8. [FONT=&quot]Press Menu hard key under "Ok" screen prompt to start wipeout of phone, handset will begin to format handset showing progress with multiple lines of ellipses (....) (camera button can also be used to confirm selection)[/FONT]

    Crazy idea. You could have someone text you a hyperlink to say, the sweeter home website, where you could download the apk for a home replacement and then instal it to see if you can get to the app drawer/marketplace.

    Fix complete

    Battery pulls were no help. Did the hard reset as suggested and all is well. All I lost in the end was my actual arrangement of screens and icons and my email setting in K9 but those things were easy to fix. Thanks for the help, life is good again. dancedroid
