    I think my Droid just bricked. Cannot get it to do anything.

    Tried this:
    Spoke to someone from Verizon this morning and found out how to hard reset. Turn phone off, open the keyboard and press x while pressing the power button until you see a triangle with a yellow exclamation point appear. Press the camera button and the volume up button simultaneously until you get a data menu. Using the 5-way pad, scroll down to data reset and click with the D pad. When it is finished resetting, power off and then up again.

    Didn't work, no response at all.

    Only thing that still functions is when I plug in charger, the charge light does come on

    That should work. I'd keep trying. Do you see the yellow exclamation?

    I did a hard reset and it was fine afterwords.

    Yep, one of those times!

    Before my brickosode I did have it in a generic holder on my dash of my 18wheeler and it WAS PLUGGED IN!

    After calling VZ and the store I bought it from to make preliminary replacement plans... I was backing up my SD card and decided to plug phone back in to leave it sit overnight and hope for a miracle.

    As I was futzing around with other stuff I hear 'DROID' as my phone booted itself up. The battery was so dead it couldn't boot, kinda like an iPod (i have a Touch (it's for sale)).

    Instead of deleting this post out of embarrasment, I am leaving for edumacatioal purposes and to give flamers a sitting target.
