For some odd reason today on my Droid Incredible 2 I noticed a bunch of weird stuff. My gallery app is missing. The phone button doesnt work. The contact names don't show up anymore just the number. Now my status bar on the top of the screen is gone. I have seen other threads regarding the other issues but does anyone else have a solution for the status bar. I really do not want to factory reset.
Dirtkween, based on the number of issues you are having and the fact that they are all major issues I believe a factory reset will be needed in this case. You can try first clearing data/cache from some applications that you are having issues with. Also boot into safe mode to see if an application may be causing the issue with the status bar. If so, remove recently installed applications, especially any wallpapers or home screen apps. If still no status/notification bar, I suggest a factory reset.
