whats your problem, I searched already and couldn't find any threads stating this. calm down, isn't this forum meant to help people, instead forum natzis like you ruin things. Someone should delete you, off the face of this planet.
i had the same problem (also on a USA Tmobile Vibrant)
had to use the "secret code" on the dialer
punch in *#*#7780#*#* and it will take you to the reset option menu
if you do a search for secret codes, either here or on the xda forum, you'll find the thread listing all of them
not all the secret codes you'll find work on the Tmo Vibrant, USA version
Hey, do you happen to know any other secret codes to get into the phones volume level control, and some how set the max volume to something higher. I can barely hear my phone conversations sometimes, the earpiece speaker is too low even at max setting.
never saved the codes - i did save the reset one as i went back to find them and saved it figuring i'd need it again
when you hit that code, it should have taken you to a menu of 3 or 4 options, one of which (i forget the exact wording) was to reset & delete all user data, and when you select it, it still brings up a warning msg that all user data will be deleted and ask you to confirm
they might not have appeared to be different options - kind of looks like 4 lines of text, but you can scroll to each line, kind of like when you do a "safe mode" reboot on a PC
I've tried everything to do a HARD factory reset, but the phone never goes into the boot up menue.
I've held the volume down button down while pressing on.
I've held the volume up button down while pressing on.
I've held up and down both down at the same time and pressed on.
Nothing, it never works.
i just talked to customer service and they told me that u have to hold down volume up, down and power key at the same time and release it when u see vibrant logo and it actually worked for me!!! but remember u have to release all three button after u see the vibrant logo ah... never mind it's still asking for too many pattern attempts.. damn it went into the boot menu and i selected delete all user date and pressed yes delete all user data... it told me it was done and i pressed reboot system and when it restarted it was still asking for user name and password... strange!!! i already did it twice
