    Ok...here goes...Sat I was charging my phone and when I unplugged it, it turned off. I waited a while and still while unplugged wouldn't do anything. Plugged it in and I get the battery with the circle in the middle then a full batt icon, turn it on and only get to the unlock screen and it shuts down. I switch batteries and still does the same thing.

    Found out how to get odin mode(not exactly sure what it does...) and went through that process and now when I try to turn it on it flashes (in blue) RECOVERY BOOTING... and vibrates about every 3 seconds and has been doing it since last night. I'm too nervous about unplugging it from my comp.

    I already have a replacement on the way and should be here today...I just want my pics.

    Hope someone out there can help me...

    Have you tried wiping the cache partition in the recovery? Wiping the data (factory reset (I believe it's the same)) might also be a viable option just to test since you may already have to replace it anyway
