    Does your phone have the 3 button reset issue? Can you enter recovery mode, and download mode using your 3 buttons (volume up+down+power)?

    Well it seems like Canada customers who own the Vibrant are in uproar. Now US customers are discovering their phones may have the problem too.
    Does yours?

    You deffinately want this replaced if you have the issue, I consider this a bigger problem than GPS. Just imagine applying an over the air update, such as the GPS optimization to be released soon, and something goes wrong, if you cant access recovery mode, your phone is basically bricked.

    Samsung Canada had this to say on their facebook account:
    "Samsung Mobile CanadaThanks to everyone for your continued patience and feedback as we work through the three-button reset issue on the Galaxy S Vibrant. Rest assured, it is a top priority. Please stay tuned for updates this week."

    Sounds like the GPS issue, all over again.

    So does your phone have the 3 button issue?
    Try these two methods, and see if you can get into recovery mode, and download mode. I'm not responsible if you damage your phone.
