    I've tried both ways. Settings, privacy, reset.

    Home plus power button while the phone is off.

    (Sd card is removed by the way)

    On the system recovery screen it says E:can't open /cache/recovery/command

    I've tried using wipe cache partition then wipe and just wipe. It still goes back to my last settings. Even my wallpaper which is of a picture of my son is on there.

    Ideas?

    Why did you remove your sd card?

    I tried both ways, I thought it may have been cacheing data.

    I'd pull pull the battery, replace it in a minute or so, then hold down power and home for at least 5 seconds, tap the search key when the triangle appears, scroll to factory reset using the volume down key, confirm, then select ok.

    ..with the sd card in, by the way.

    :)

    Did that earlier, let it sit for about 20 minutes with no battery. Card in and then card out.

    Took it to the vzw store, they did a reflash. No dice. New phone on the way, it kept reseting to last Tuesday. So odd, even the rep said so and he was in the know on droids.
