 Hey guys

In desperate need of some help here! Last night, I was trying to watch a football match over the internet on my phone when it froze, completely and wouldnt even respond to the power button. I took the battery out to switch it off, turned it on again and now it won't load past the black 'galaxy s gt i9000' screen'

if i press a couple of hard keys then the soft keys at the bottom light up but they don't respond to any touch, and if i hold the power button it just seems to switch off then immediately come back on again.

Could anyone help me please? I have never installed any dodgy programs or anything on this

have the same problem, looked at some stream yesterday night, closed the application, and this morning... nothing ..
It starts up normally and then goes black, only the two touch buttons at the bottom lite up and every now and then it vibrates one time and a couple of seconds later it vibrates 3 times.

When i start up holding the volume up button i can get into the restore menu but i don't want to do a system restore yet because of loosing all my info.

Hi guys, I share your sentiments on this one.  I got the same problem last night.  I took off the phone before I go to bed and when I got up this morning and powered it up, it never got passed the bootup screen.
This is the second time this has happened to me and I had to do a factory reset and lost all my data.  I really love this phone but I cannot continue going like this.  I really hope someone out there has a solution to this problem.
