    Welcome to the forums, Amanda.

    Please tell us which of the many Android devices you're having trouble with so we can better help you, and also so we can move your question thread to the right area for you.

    You might also mention a few things such as whether or not it is rooted, etc. ;)

    You're probably going to have to get into the recovery menu.

    Most Android devices do that by a combination of two buttons such as holding the volume down button while pressing the power button, or volume up and power, or both up and down at the same time and power, etc.

    You'll have to experiment to find it, unless somebody with that device chimes in. Just be sure to be patient and hold them for 5 or more seconds or until something appears on the screen, then release.

    One thing they all have in common is using the volume up and down keys to navigate the menu once it appears.

    Because you cannot get into your device long enough to use the normal menus there, you'll likely have to use the factory data reset choice in the recovery menu.

    Let's see if other ideas come along in the X10 forum where I've moved your question.

    It's too bad the FCs are preventing access to the menus in the phone. Getting to the wireless and networking area would allow unchecking all network and wireless settings, then rebooting, which often washes out the com.android.phone issue.

    Frisco it becomes more and more apparent every day that I actually know so little about Android!

    Well, buy a few, borrow several, and wreck them all. Then fix them.

    You'll learn a lot. That's what I did. :eek:

    :D
