Did you mean: 

when i turned on my phone, the screen had on it "downloading do not turn off target". It has been this way for over 2 hours. What is up with this?

Re: Downloading

I have 3 Fascinates.   Same thing happened to just one of them this morning.   After 3 hours, called verizon support.

They weren't sure was what going on, but 'thought' it might be on OTA update.   duh. 


Was told if still 'downloading' after 3 or 4hours, remove battery, reinsert battery, turn phone back on.  Then call

back if still problems.

So, I gave it 4 hours.   Never went past that yellow downloading screen. So, I removed battery.. Put battery back in.

Phone started and works just fine.    Looks exactly like it did yesterday.  I checked all versions in the 'about' section and

nothing had changed or was updated that I can see.


My guess,   they are experimenting with an OTA update with a small number of random fascinate owners.


Hopefully we'll hear something shortly, one way of the other.
