    Hello all! New here, from Ireland.

    Just got myself a Samsung Galaxy Europa (GT-I5500) yesterday as my intro to the Android world. I was absolutely lovin' it.....until, after downloading some "Live Wallpapers", it froze! :(

    Now, when the phone is on all I can see is the "Slide To Unlock" screen, when I unlock it, it just gives me a blank, black screen, with the info bar at the top (battery/wi-fi bar).

    I can't access any of the menu's, and I'm fairly worried! :confused:

    I've tried the volume & power button trick, but it's not giving me a reboot option or anything. Is there any way of resetting the phone to default externally? (a reset button/through a PC/etc?).

    Any help greatly appreciated!
