Incredible 2 ...Screen & Buttons Unresponsive...Cant Factory Reset...what now?

This is a replaecment phone Ive had for 32 days.  It wasnt dropped and had no water damage.  SImply stopped functioning.  The 4 bottom buttons wont work, he screen barely recognizes touch.  It wont factory reset, and to top it all off, my Settings App "is no longer installed" on my phone.  **bleep** could have happened?  This is some weird **bleep** and its maddening, seeing as how it woeked one moment and the next...nothing.  Any advice?   Will the insurance company or Verizon replace this?  What a racket...
