    To help people out, are you rooted? Did you do the factory reset just prior to this problem? Did you try to flash a new ROM just prior to this problem?

    Are these the steps you followed?

    From erisuser1:
    "You might need to perform a factory reset on the phone using the recovery - whether the phone is rooted or unrooted.

    If it is unrooted, you do this by:

    - charge the phone to 100%
    - cold-start the phone with Send+End (so you are in FASTBOOT mode)
    - use the menu presented to go to HBOOT MODE
    - use the menu presented here to boot into RECOVERY

    - when you see the screen with the Android on it (possibly a triangle w/ exclamation point), that is the "stock recovery" splash screen

    - press Vol-Up+End

    If that does not produce the (stock) recovery menu, press the Home soft-key + End

    You should see a menu item that allows you to perform a factory reset."

    If you did this and it did not help, I would suggest calling Verizon tech support. They may have a better idea of what to do.

    Anyone else have an idea?
