    Hey Jen, welcome.

    Rooting won't make it work on att. All that does is give you access to the root and system of your phone. Think of it as administrative rights.

    The screen you're seeing is called download mode. That's good you can get to dl mode BUT, it shouldn't automatically come up. Check that the volume buttons aren't sticking.

    Unfortunately this phone doesn't have the physical hardware to run on att; this isn't a software issue.

    You can try to return the phone to stock to at least make it a usable phone (on Verizon). Because I have no idea what was done with the phone to have it automatically come up in dl mode I can't say this will work, but use our return to stock guide: http://www.chargeforums.com/forum/droid-charge-hacking-guides/727-flashing-roms-return-stock-odin-picture.html#post4140

    Go slow, follow closely and you'll be fine. Get stuck just ask

    yes. just press skip. or, you could try removing the SIM card. but as brewer mentioned, I won't work on another carrier. so in the meantime, it will work on wifi (just no mobile data or phone signal).

    in which, I recommend to turn off mobile data.

    For what it's worth I'm not sure you'll be able to move it to att, if that's your ultimate goal. Att uses GSM frequency bands but Verizon uses cdma. And the technology is built differently as a result, so I'm not sure how you'd swap from one to another or if it's possible. If I'm reading you post incorrectly sorry about that.

    Glad you got it back to working stock!

    Correct jeff, it won't work with att because of what you said, different hardware. It would be like trying to get an apple to work with anything else lol.

    Jen, glad you got it working
    If you're goal is to use it as an att phone its not going to work. But at least a working phone is worth something to someone on vzw or you can use it as an Android "iPod"-esque device.

    +1 to jc, just skip past the setup screens and turn off data (it'll just drain the battery).
