    As i was using the web, my phone suddenly shut off. When I tried to turn it back on,I see my wall paper for a quick second but then goes straight to a blue screen.At the bottom of this screen, it reads "bootloader usb ini". The phone does nothing else. What has gone wrong, and how can I fix it? HELP! Thanks,Danielle

    I only had the phone for 3 weeks, I was charging it and using the web when my phone apparently flipped out. I think it got too hot. Well it started blinking the hello moto screen on and off. I turned it off and on and that's when it went to that pretty blue screen with the BOOTLOADER USB INI message written on the bottom. There is no making calls or using the web. The only way to turn it back off again is to take out the battery. When you turn it back on it goes to the same blue screen. Totally fucked up.

    So I called tech support for boost unlimited. They told me that I had to talk to motorola. Motorola didn't know anything. The tech support person was really stupid. She told me to take out the battery and put it back in. I did that for the 101st time and the same thing. She told me that I should return the phone where I bought it from (wal-mart). Well I had thrown the box away, so I had my service suspended and I'm going to go buy a new phone and return it with the old one in the box, and get my money back.

I'm getting a bootloader usb init screen

Your phone is partly fried. It needs to be re-flashed. You can do it with a USB cable and the proper software....Google "bootloader USB" for some help in finding the software. One thing to try, hold down the "*" and "#" keys while powering up the phone, this could possibly help, but I doubt it.

Good Luck!!!

Bootloader usb init

This means that the phone firmware is corrupt - you can try to reflash it using Motorola software update, but it might not work for a phone stuck in bootloader mode:

Get this Phone reflashed. Of course if you Dropped the Phone or if it went into water then Forget it about spending 35-50 Bucks on reflasing this phone. because it will go back to Boot Mode.
