    After my phone was activated this morning I left the store. Tried to sign on to google and the phone for some reason wasn't picking up 3g ( we dont' have 4g here) I decided to power off and repower on.. but obviously I was also hitting the volume buttons on the other side and I think I accidentally booted into some crazy mode.

    It says: ODIN MODE at the top in red

    Has an android figure on it and under it is says:
    "Downloading... do not turn off target!!!"

    and then has some OMAP -SAmsung info in small writing at the bottom.


    Its been this way for 45 minutes now and I'm afraid to push anything!!!

    HELP HELP HELP!!!

    i can't remember if Odin has a reboot option on the program, but it is safe to pull the battery and reboot while it's like this :)

    This has happened to me twice. I pushed the start (power) button and it resumed to turn the phone on as it normally would. All is good.
