Are you rooted?
I have mostly moved on to Nook Tablet development (at XDA) although I do still check in here periodically. If you can't solve your problem after searching around a bit, feel free to PM me and I will try to help.
Did you use the AIO to root your phone?
if so, you should have ClockworkMod Recovery.
Power off your device,and press Power+R at the same time to enter recovery.
yes, that's the R key on the keyboard, btw.
you may stop holding the power key when you see the Samsung logo, but keep pressing R until you're in the recovery menu.
If I've helped you, please do hit the Thanks button.
And remember to pay it forward!
Or if you REALLY insist, there's always PayPal...
ok thanx. yeah tried it jus tnow..still does the same thing.. im really trying to avoid going to the metro corporate store and stand in line for a couple hours... n e one else has any other possible solutions or ideas? i noticed that if i keep messing with it it wont restart..but if i stop messing with it for a few seconds then it restarts..and it wont get any signal..it keeps saying its in airplane mode eventhough its not..
Hows' the battery gauge?
Leave it off and let it charge to 100%. then boot into recovery, and clear the following:
and Battery Stats.
and then restart the phone.
Maybe the battery is messing with it starting up, I've had a similar problem on my VERY OLD laptop about 5 years ago... (I know, that's a stretch, but I'm running out of ideas here! )

just rooted it today, I installed rom toolbox and I changed the battery icon after it restarted it wont proceed past the initial samsung screen. ran clockwork mod recovery and restored to factory settings still no luck. how can I save my phone :\
Try my eg06+ef23 stock 2.2.2 tar to fix it.
That thing fixes a lot of stuff...
(you will need to use either Odin out Heimdall to complete the process.
See the 2.2.2eg06+ef23 stock tar thread for details.

if ur on stock and dont really want to go to store and have them mail u a new one like they did with my friend i would suggest u flash the basix rom and then the electric sheep kernel im more than positive it will stop ur random reboots but also make ur phone work more efficient.
I'm on my third Samsung Galaxy Indulge from MetroPCS just since October. The last one ... which I got a little over a week ago ... wouldn't recognize any network above 1x. After a couple of hours at MetroPCS, they replaced the phone yesterday.
This one was working splendidly all yesterday evening and through most of today....EXCEPT...I kept getting those very short vibrations constantly. It seemed to be happening more when I arrived at my home as opposed to being out and about. I went through some of the services that were running and turned off some of them by tapping the screen. Eventually, one of those...which I can't remember...actually stopped the vibrations from happening.
But, through today the battery was draining very fast!
I put the phone on my car charger while out, and turned off the phone.
Now, it's just like the description in the original poster's description. It will show the Samsung web address, the MetroPCS animated logo, followed by the Samsung logo ... along with the returning of those quick vibrations...
and the screen goes blank with the back lighting still on.
The only way I can turn off the phone is to pull the battery.
I've tried every which way to Sunday to get it to boot and it will not boot.
Now, someone please explain what "rooted" means. I'm new to Android.
EDIT: Good news!! I was able to get the phone to boot using the Manual Reset by reverting to Factory Settings and clearing the Cache.
