    Hi guys, I'm about to brake this thing right on my concrete parking slot. I'm so tired of Samsung.

    My phone keeps restarting with the famous vibration all the time.

    • To start the phone I must insert the battery.
    • I will only see the Windows white logo on blue background once and that's all. No Samsung logo. Then it restart over and over.
    • I tried the volume up + power button and so on without success. I didn't install upgrade neither installed any new application recently prior to this issue.

    Is phone good for garbage or not?

    Yes, I'm pissed of!

    HI Pappale,

    Thanks for your reply. But how can you flash a phone that cannot be seen by a computer?

    you need to enter "Donwload mode" but before that you will need the proper ROM for T899M
    search this forum for more info or wait for a better advice :-)

    All I found about Download mode is this :
    Press and hold volume up + camera button and press power button until he vibrates and than RELEASE ONLY THE POWER BUTTON,and than connect the phone to pc.

    Once again, in the reboot sequence I do never see the Samsung Logo. I only see the Windows blue screen once.

    I don't think that it's possible to get to the download mode. Not at the speed that the reboot is going on. The vibration goes like it was an alarm clock. Is that what you guys had? Like vibration after vibration with nothing on the screen?.

    My friend Ativ S had this problem a while ago. I took me at least 20 tries removing the battery and booting the phone up to get rid of this problem.
    As soon as it succeeded booting up, I entered the download mode in order to flash a factory ROM.

    Try the reset/download mode key combinations at boot when you put the battery in.

    I have exactly the same problem but with the I8750 variant. "Luckily" it was still under warranty, but after forty one days it seems like not even samsung are able to fix it...

    My option was to buy a jig usb to force the download mode, if not work out I will send to technical

    Hello guys, I solved the problem by sending my phone for assistance, the problem was the power button that was short, and he exchanged the button again to normal

    Samsung galaxy and Samsung ativ are notorious for power button issues I've heard.
