    Is there a way to disable the search button at the bottom? I keep touching it by accident and it screws up my navigation.

    lol I couldn't answer your question... but you are not alone. I came to the droid from a LG Dare, and the search button is right where the hard button for the end is on my old phone. Every time I go to hang up the phone, I hit search, and it takes forever for me to figure out how to get back into the phone so I can end the call.

    Can you put a little piece of electrical tape over it or something? I know it's cheesy, but...

    I have this problem too, but really I guess we should all get used to using that tab below the 4 touch buttons whenever we need to touch/hold the phone.
