"Safe Mode".

I turned my Droid Incredible on this morning and found a shaded box with the words "SAFE MODE" in it.  I have tried restarting my phone and shutting it completely off with same results.  What is this and how do I fix it (removed battery?).  Prior to this the phone was working fine with a near full charge on it.

You can redownload all of your applications by visiting and choosing the My Android Apps tab!

When you're ready you can reset your phone by following these steps:

Please keep me posted!
