    Also came up in safe mode? Not sure what you mean by that....


    Sounds like you need to hard reset and start over.

    U 2 r the ones i hoped would help me and i have stumped u 2 wow. First wa trying to get activesync working again and it is but whenit reset it cameup weird so i rfeset it again then i got the safe mode function. So how do i hard reset if that is my last result? T/u but i thought i had really hit the wall here. Might be best since i know more and can add the sotware i like sin'ce i have tested so much of it. Let me know what u 2 or anyone else thinks and i will go forward at 5:30 when i get to work in the morning. It is strang everything is working i just can't get the start button stuck to pop up.

    You've confused us because there's no such thing as safe mode for a WM device.


    To hard reset:

    (Do be aware that it'll wipe your device. Completely.)

    Actually there is a 'Safe Mode'.
    It's happened to me a couple times.
    When it happens at Boot-up, a pop-up will ask something like; 'Hit some button or other to enter 'Safe Mode'

    It's there, I just don't remember what brings it up.
    It happened to me like twice.

    Like when I tried to install Ebags RealVGA!

    I just googled 'Safe Mode ppc' and then I tried 'Safe Mode Wm' then 'Safe Mode 6.1' - Nothing!

    hmm.
    Now I wonder what I saw.
    It did happen, and when it did I thought hmm..
    Now I'm wondering if I was trippin.

    I tell you this; if it happens again, I will most definitely take a picture.
    I'm not as think as you stoned I am!
    Just call me Berd.

    It seems SPB Pocket Plus provides a safe mode boot option.

    And that very well may have been it.
    I did try spb pocket plus and mobile shell.
    I betcha it was with spb pocket plus.

    Either way, kaw900r needs to Hard Reset and start over.

    Appreciate the responses and the hard reset is complete and my phone is back ready for me to begin setting it up again. Forgot what it looked like from a fresh start not a bad phone. But the safe mode is real and I guess it did come from SPB since i was running a few of their apps. Once again t/y all

    It's not fun unless to get cut every now & then on the cutting edge!!!

    fyi, if you up were running mobile shell, all you had to do was go into your button settings (start - settings - buttons) and change the start menu back to <Start Menu>. then your default start menu would come back up.

    That's what my problem was I couldn't do anything from the start button. It was fudged as in my post above. But all is good once again. fresh with only software i know i like and want.
