    Hey guys, Ive had my Moto Droid since it basically came out last Nov and I have never ever run into a problem with the phone until last night. I had a phone call and after i got off the phone, i noticed my droid reseted itself and it wasnt going back to the home screen. Meaning it would just display the word "Droid" then go right into the droid red eye screen, then right back to the word Droid and just kept repeating itself. I took the battery out and put it back in, but it kept doing the same thing.

    Im really not sure what would cause my phone to do this, but the only new change i can think of was that i installed the "TMZ" application to my droid about 3 hours prior to this happening. But the application worked fine and i really hope it wasnt because of that.

    Is there anything I can do before going to Verizon? I would really hate giving up my phone with all my stuff in it, but I know theres probably not much i can do if i cant even get to the home screen.

    first question, are you rooted and have a custom rom loaded??? you might try pulling battery, then plugging into power cord, reinsert batter and try to power up. if no good, maybe reboot into recovery (hold "X" button while turning on) and see if there is a "factory reset" option in the stock recovery menu.

    Well i tried the battery trick with the power cord and all, and no luck. I actually just got back from the Verizon store and they tried a bunch of stuff including putting in a new battery to see if it was that, but the phone still wouldnt load the home screen. They ordered me a new phone so well see what happens.

    Sounds like your phone is stuck in a boot loop, if you still have it you can do what the last poster suggested which is load recovery and try wiping data and cache / factory reset
