had this going in another thread and decided against hijacking that poll thread. I decided to factory reset my phone. I did the power off, hold volume down and power up at the same time. I got a menu from that and selected "clearstorage". It went to a screen with a pic of my phone and a red trianlge with an exclamation point through it. It has been like this for about 1 hour now. I am afraid to take the battery off now though. The buttons are not responding. Is this just something to wait out, anyone ever seen this before? Should I just bite the bullet and pull it? Just advise not holding anyone accountable for what happens next. Thanks.
