    So I did the 2.2 OTA update yesterday and now it has screwed up my phone. My question is, can I wipe my phone and start over? Can I install 2.2 RUU?

    My phone has all kinds of bugs now, including but not limited to:

    -Cannot get on the internet, browsers close after a few seconds
    -Cannot get on Pandora
    -Swype does not work, even after reinstall. I cant download new version because I cannot get on the internet because of the browser issue.
    -Menu button no longer unlocks the phone

    This is awful, my android device is now just a phone.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Have you tried a factory wipe? That's what the RUU is supposed to do.

    I did a factory wipe and now my phone will not go through the activation/programming process...I cant even make a call. When I try to connect to customer service, its says its the wrong number and hangs up.

    Having same issue here. Reset my phone about 2 times in the past 2 hours to try to fix my sd card not mounting, and now I can't activate my phone lol. Oh Verizon screwing us up with the OTA and now not letting my phone be a... well... phone.

    You might be able to use the instructions here to back it up. Though you might want to start out with asking in the Q & A section first. Just to be safe and not end up with a bunch of grief.
