    I have the Verizon Droid. Recently, my 'Home' & 'Search' buttons are not working; plus the screen lock no longer activates.

    Essentially, when I am in an application, the Home button does not do anything. Also, when I push & hold the Home button, in an attempt to switch to an application, that also does nothing.

    The search button does nothing at any time. When I push the power button to turn the screen on, it used to come up with the 'unlock' screen - this does not happen any more.

    I've seen some posts that are similar to this, but thoser were quite awhle ago, and none seemed to have a resolution.
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    - Alex

    Additionally - and not sure if this is related - I am not receiving any incoming calls. When someone calls, they go straight to my voicemail (but they show up in my call log) ... I can make outgoing calls ... also, if I have made an outgoing call, I CAN receive an incoming call ... Thanks for any help!!

    You could always try a hard reset. If that doesn't work, I would just call Verizon for a replacement.

    I had to hard reset.. Never found out what happened. Apparently it a VERY common issue with the droids. No one knows why.

    This same thing happened to mine. I tried all kinds of reset methods, none worked. It ended when the charging port no longer worked. Ended up getting a replacement.
