    Phone locked up

    This post may have already been answered somewhere else in the forum but here goes. I bought a S3 about a month ago from an ebay store "new". Worked great until last night, it rebooted on its own and got stuck on the verizon LTE screen. I tried to do a factory reset but instead of the bootloader screen it came up with this screen: it says "ODIN MODE" in red letters at the top. under that PRODUCT MODE: SCH-I535. CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO, CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official, SYSTEM STATUS: Official, QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE. Then a big Android picture in the middle, under that is says "DOWNLOADING..." under that Do not turn off target!!. it has been on that screen for an hour or so. what can I do?

    Welcome to the forum!
    Sounds like you went into download mode instead of recovery mode. Take your battery out for about 5-10 min, put it back in and replace the back cover, then hold the volume up, home button and power button all at the same time until the Samsung logo quickly flashed on the screen or the recovery screen pops up. From there you can do a factory data reset.
