    Hello, Was wondering if anyone knew how to get pass the activation screen on the Droid Eris to view the phone? I know on the Motorola Droid u can bypass by touching each corner of the screen, but this does not seem to work on the Eris. anyone have any ideas?

    I know that this is an old thread but I just had this same problem and I found a solution. I am visiting family in Canada and I reloaded 2.1v3 and did a factory reset. Unfortunately it prompted me to activate my phone and I couldn't because I was out of the country (it dialed *228 and that connected to Rogers in Canada).

    I was able to bypass this by holding power and going into airplane mode then restarting the activation... this time it didn't even ask and just continued with everything else. I was able to connect to wifi and my phone is working again.

    hope this helps.

    I had this problem before. Odd as it seems, I bypassed it by pressing the four corners of the screen:

    1. top left
    2. top right
    3. bottom right
    4. bottom left

    To be fair, I'm not 100% sure of the order (it was awhile) ago but I am sure it was in a circlish pattern.
