Okay heres what you do guys!!! Just happened to me today and I fixed it. Mine was at the bottom of a hottub for 2 days XD.

The power in the phone needs to run out
then, plug the phone up
wait about 30 seconds(download screen should be up and it is charging xD.)
Then Take the battery out and unplug the charge from the phone
Stick the battery back in
Wait about 30 more seconds
Hold down the Red Phone untill it turns on.

    you are fantastic! thank god for your help. seriously, everyone, this realllly works. lets see. i dropped my phone in the toilet (this is my first time ever). i retrieved it in around 3 seconds. i wiped it off in general with a towel. i turned it on. it worked for like 5 seconds. then it went wierd and shut itself off. it then went into that download screen. i kept repeatedly try to turn it on and off. then i took out the battery and the sim card and my sd card. dried everything in general. kept trying to turn it on. went online, to search a solution. i read about a lot of different methods. i blow dryed the phone in general for like 30 seconds. i tried this method, and OMG, it totally works. im not sure if im lucky or not, because i made a lot of fundamental beginner mistakes (like not immediately taking out the battery) and such. anyhow, i hope ppl can learn from my own mistakes. good luck

    That didn't work for my phone, but I also contacted Samsung. They told me to turn ON the phone in recovery mode - Press and hold the volume UP and DOWN buttons while pressing the power button. It worked! I didn't see this anywhere else and I have been Googling like crazy to find a way to fix my phone. Hope this helps someone else too!

Samsung T629 stuck at splash screen

Take your sim car out and try using these codes to reset the phone.
*2767*2878# and *2767*3855#

Your phone software could also be corrupt.
If you go to samsung you may be able to update the firmware in the phone over the internet.

If all else fails have the phone re-flashed by a technician.
