    Hey guys I just got a Verizon droid phone. I purchased it used mostly because I don't want to spend the funds on a new one if I don't like the OS and what not.

    Anyways , I had the 'pass code' for it but it's been off for a week and I totally forgot how to unlock it and get to the dashboard.

    I have been trying to do the 'X' + Power = Recovery mode. However, I cannot seem to get it to go into recovery mode.
    Every time I try it just boots up normally to the 'Activate' phone screen. Then if I hit 'Back' it takes me to the 'pass code' and emergency call screen.


    What is wrong with this phone ? Haha...

    any help is appreciated.

    Can you please specify which model Droid it is? Or is it the original Motorola Droid (A855).

    Turn it off and then back on. Then when it gets to the screen to set up hit clockwise each corner and keep tapping. If not try counter. This is how I have done it with most devices.

    Peace!

    Well actually it was until the update but a new update is on the way! Should fix it. My battery lasted a day and a half with heavy use! With no 4 g in my area though...lol

    Glad to here that you're liking it! That's pretty decent battery too. If I end up not liking the Gnex, the RAZR will definitely be my second choice. My D2 barely lasts 5 hours with battery saving settings, and moderate usage :(.

    Indeed I keep my D2 close! Love it. And yes the Gnex is another I will have soon. Gonna be hard to let go of that one too brother. Gnex and D4 will be my other devices I will use this year or next year anyway! Lol

    Sounds like your D2 battery is shot. You could pick up a new one for like $5 on Amazon.
