First off welcome to the forums!

I have moved your thread to the Droid 2 forum to get some better assistance.

I would try performing a factory reset on the device since you cannot unlock it.

You can do a factory reset from the system recovery. This will delete everthing off the phone, even the password.
To do this:
  • Pull the battery and power back while holding the X button. Once you see an Android with the triangle & exclamation point, press the Search button on the keyboard.
  • The Motorola Droid 2 Global is now in the factory recovery image, use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move around and the Camera button or OK on the keyboard to select.
  • Select the option to Wipe data/factory reset.
    Once the wipe is finished, select Reboot system now.

The Motorola Droid 2 is the followup to the Verizon handset that put Android on the map in a big way, and keeping with tradition key upgrades and an improved keyboard creates a device worthy of the name. Featuring a 1GHz processor, 3.7-inch display... Read More
