    Since the 2.1 OTA update, my Droid Eris has been a little slower and little buggy. Which I'm not that concerned about. But today, I cannot drag down to unlock my screen. When I hit menu, it does nothing. Is there another way to shut down the phone when you cannot unlock the screen?

    'Sorry if this is an utter newb question, but I think if I can power down an restart the phone, I may be able to unlock my screen.

    I pulled the battery & it's fine now. I read that several Eris users are having the same issue after the 2.1 OTA update.

    Thanks again!

    If your problem continues to rear its head in the future, refer to the Factory Data Reset sticky thread.
