Hi All I'm hoping that someone will be able to point me in the right direction. I've scoured threads and posts and have yet to find an answer to my particular problem. My Desire isn't rooted (only got it just over a month ago), not locked into any network and running Gingerbread. I haven't had any problems with the phone before, it's been working fine since a friend gave it to me. My problem is that a day after arriving in my new destination, I decided to restart my phone and it's been stuck in the boot mode ever since. The only thing I did prior to restarting it was click on a link, stopped the link from loading and closed the browser (Opera Mini). I decided to restart my phone which is where my problem began. The volume keys won't work in boot mode. I wasn't holding any key down whilst restarting the phone. I've removed the battery but once it's put back in, it goes back to boot mode. I've also tried taking out the sd card but again, no difference. I have no idea what could've caused it but I'm totally lost without my phone contacts. If anyone could help I would be so grateful!
