How do I unlock phone without using touchscreen?
There has to be a plan B built into this phone that I love so much. My touchscreen just stopped working and there is no way to unlock it using the D-pad? I have tried soft reset in a number of ways and no luck. Please hurry, before an i-phone person see's my droid is not working!

SusanHome -- See my post in your previous thread.
If you are not password protected, and use the default lock app the magnet thing I talked about in your other thread will work. I used a small round magnet on my test, and it worked fine.

Question.... Why was this started as a new thread? One of the main reasons I like this forum is that it is uncluttered. I'm not a moderator and not trying to police it or be mean to a new member .... but please!!! what was the point of starting this new thread?
Exact same issue, same member, 2 threads started (insert disgusted sigh here)... that's just.... annoying.

exactly. root, backup, unroot/restore to default 2.0.1 and return. Which can all be done easily without using the touch screen. Then root and restore the image on the new one. There are backup apps in the market for sms, etc but I'd hate to try any of that with a borked screen.
Thanks everyone! The magnet was a great idea, except the keypad only gets you so far. Verizon and Motorolla have never geard of the screen not working...Verizon is sending me a new phone.
And Prometheus...sorry to be annoying to you. It was late, I was frustrated and on several chat/forums.

Re: How do I unlock phone without using touchscreen?
For the Droid 2 Global, simple swipe a magnet across the back...it will place the phone in "dock mode." You can then use your phone using the keyboard. Aggravating, but works until you can get a new phone.
