    I just installed an app (Contact Owner) and once I rebooted my phone, I can never get back into the system.

    That shall be the only harmful action that I had done, can I know if there's any way that I can boot into safe mode to uninstall that particular app?

    Thanks a lot.

    Note:

    I read some links, including this. Some said, HOME + Power, some said MENU + Power. Am trying both now and see which is gonna work.

    Tried both, not working :( How long do I have to press on the buttons? Is the "Power" button the right most bottom button?

    I cant say the Magic works like the Dream ... but i would think it should ...

    Turn the Phone OFF (pull battery if necessary)

    So hold the MENU button and press the POWER button ... then continue to hold the menu button until you see "Safe Mode" in transparent lettering" in the lower left corner of the screen ....

    I had the same problem. Took me a while to reboot after Contact Owner failed on me. I'm using the HTC Magic by Rogers and I don't recommend downloading this app.

    There is a way to delete apps from your computer when you have the device plugged in. I'll try to explain it when I get home.
