Help New Fascinate brick question


Oct 25, 2010
Trying to wipe phone to sell, and it bricked. Would NOT get passed Samsung logo at boot up. Just cleaned and reset via EDO3.tar.md5 via instructions found elsewhere on this forum, thanks! The phone turned on, and for a second, looked like factory. But, after selecting English as my language, it goes to "press send to activate phone" and I can't get it off that screen. Back takes me back to select language, and none of the other buttons have any effect. I don't want to activate it. I want to sell it... :) Is this what I should see, and how does someone "see" the phone and even anything about it, if the only screen is "send to activate?" Thanks!!!!
