    Hi, I suggest you turn off the phone and reboot, I know it says not to but unless you are connected to Odin on your computer it isn't downloading anything. Phil
    p.s. If it won't turn off do a battery pull.

    what he said, pull the battery if you have to.
    just restart it.

    worst case, format it and let it Register again. you will loose all of your data, but at least the phone will be working.

    Yep, Phil, if I can't pull the battery, I guess I won't be owning it... :)

    I have been stuck so many times to forgo that option.

    Oh come on, all you need to do is get your heat gun, melt the glue holding the glass on the back of the phone, remove it and de-solder the battery terminals. Five minute job, what could possibly go wrong ;) /sarcasm

    But yes, I am thinking about buying a stock of Note 4's

    Regards,
    Eric.

    There is an even quicker option than yours touringhaggis, put phone in left hand, open lid of rubbish bin with right hand, throw in stupidly designed phone, close lid, five seconds work! Phil

    Your in download mode. Hold power and home until the phone reboots
