    At night before I go to sleep, I often turn off my phone and plug in the USB to AC charger. Today when I went to turn it on, I got the screen with the Android guy in the Hazard Yellow triangle shovelling and "Downloading... Do not turn off target!!!"

    I don't know how it happened, unless maybe I pressed the on button a little too long and that somehow caused this.

    I am going to leave it be for a few hours, but it's only connected to the usb to AC charger. No idea what to do. Should I try the on button again? Take out the battery? Is it bricked?

    I am pretty sure I have gingerbread or whatever the latest update was.

    thanks in advance for any help,

    :)

    A friend suggested I may have accidentally put the phone in download mode by pressing power and volume at the same time. I turned it off by pressing the button for a long time (I tried that the first time and it didn't work, and I was worried about screwing it up)...and it turned on and all is good. Oh well. There you go.

    These things happen. But for future reference, Volume down + Home key + Power button = Download mode, whereas Volume up + Home + Power = Recovery mode.

    This is one time when having these internet forums pays off! Thanks for the help in getting my wife's phone up and running.
