    Don't ever suggest that to iPhone/iPod touch users you jerk. If someone was to put my iPod into service mode (or DFU, whatever) I would so kick their ass. Because I'd have to restore and loose everything on it.

    to get out of DFU, do a hard reset, which is home and power for 10 seconds, which is what they are all talking about

    I can confirm this, besides everybody's jumping to conclusions. Sometimes, but not all the time, when your device appears in Restore Mode, you can simply force a power off by holding the Home and Power buttons. Upon restarting the phone, all will be back to normal.

    Also, simply holding down the power and home button until the phone turns off forces your phone to power off. As long as you don't continue to hold buttons, you'll be fine.

    Wrong. You are not resetting anything, you're powering the device off.
