    Hey gang, need some help with this one please.

    I've had my Bionic since release date with absolutely no problems until this morning. I went to power the phone up and after a few seconds I noticed it wasn't making it's usual sounds so I look to see a Black screen with the following text in white.

    AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
    0A.53



    Battery OK
    OK to program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    I'd post a picture, but I don't have enough posts too, but I think you get the idea.
    I haven't pressed any buttons, plugged it in, or did a battery pull in fear of Bricking this thing (if it already isn't)
    I drove by a corporate VZW store this morning to come here and ask you all.
    Thanks for any help you can give me, I'm kinda freakin out here!

    Thanks
    Merf
    P.S. The phone isn't rooted or anything, and the screen hasn't shut down for over 2 hours now.

    Sounds like you accessed the programming mode, I would power it off, remove the battery cover, remove the battery wait 30 seconds, put the battery back in cover it, and reboot, it should go away.

    I know if you press the up volume key and the power setting at the same time it puts it into programming mode so it is possible you were holding it in a way that was holding the up volume key in without realizing it and then pressed the power button at the same time. I am glad you got things going.
