Exclamation Major problem

I just noticed my phone running the boot animation while it was sitting on my desk, which is weird because I had the phone on. Now, its doing a few odd things, it seems to have wiped some of my settings, like it erased swype, it is no longer displaying the lock screen when I hit the power button, and the home and search keys aren't working. Also, when I hold the power button, only "turn off phone" comes up, none of the other options. Lastly, some app settings stopped working, like certain settings in Handcent. My phone isn't rooted, so what could have done this?

Sorry I was on my phone in the car (wasnt driving though) and didnt see that at the end of your post.

I honestly have no clue what happened to your phone and have never heard anything like that before. If you want to try and solve yourself a factory reset is the only thing I can think of. Other than that try going into vzw

I exchanged my Droid a few weeks into having it due to rebooting issues. Verizon gave me a new phone. Sometimes, they give you a hard time by saying that they won't replace it if they can't replicate the problem. I've heard people say that in the forums a few times. I guess it depends on the corporate store you go to and the manager.

Do it over the phone. Tell them the cell phone is your primary line and you have no access to another phone. You'll be bumped to a higher-up and they'll be able to help you out even more.
