Default Can not put phoner into download mode

OK, I can not put Continuum into download mode.
Odin fails to load half way, shows "fail".
Reinstalled drivers from Verizon, phone is recogbized by PC and Odin shows COM connection.
No download mode yellow triangle on the screen.

Help?

we did.

then, I have noticed that phone does not keep settings. you can change contacts, wallpaper, anything else - it stays that way only until the phone is on. if you restart it, or battery dies - it reverts automatically back to factory settings.

so, in my wisdom, I Odin-d it again, that went well; then, I installed CWM recovery, tried to put phone into recovery to install deodexed rom - and phone died. as in - d-e-d, dead. won't go into download mode, any attempts to reflash from Odin failed, will not restart.

I, finally, gave up and went to VZW. They know me there, so guy tried to flash it himself - same crap, dead. they replaced it, it's running fine now. I am not touching it anymore. I had to add 3rd phone to the account, to procure a 2 day temp phone for my wife to get by.
