How to Reset a Motorola Droid

Your Motorola Droid is a mini-computer and can crash just like your computer. There are two ways to reset your Motorola Droid: 1) Crash Recovery Reset, 2) Factory Reset. The first option resets your Droid if it freezes up and becomes inoperable; the second erases all of your data and restores your Droid to its factory settings -- a good option if you feel an app you downloaded is causing the freezing problem.
