Try removing the battery for a few minutes and let use know if that worked...

VZW tech support had to guide me through the boot menus to do a factory reset. That didn't work. They had me go all the way to Verizon store before they closed. The guy there tries again, and it worked. I swear, they are all in such denial about issues with this phone. They said they never get any complaints or returns yet I am on my 2nd device that I got on 12/26 and this one is already crashing on me. I told them I would live with it for a few more days and if it has any issues whatsoever, I am bringing it back. It is all noted in my account. I am just fed up!!

And does anyone know where pictures are stored? Apparently a factory reset erases pictures too on this darn phone. On my Droid2, they were saved on the SD card and didn't get erased.

Unfortunately a.factory reset erases all user info on the phons, including pictures, music, etc...One of the downsides of not having an SD card but relying on a "virtual SD card." Anytime you need to do.a.factory reset you need to connect to a computer and back up those items or back them up to the cloud via a service such as dropbox or box.net. I also learned this the hard way from owning an iPhone 4. Lost an entire day at the zoo with my daughter on Father's Day. I was sick over it.
