    and now it seems to be locked and I can't get back in to the phone!
    The lady talks and tells me what the buttons are and what they do, but how do I get out of there and just get back to the phone??
    Thanks for the help!!

    What do you mean you double-clicked and now can't get back into your phone? If it appears to be "locked", use the passcode to unlock it, and if it is your device, you're the only one who would know what that passcode is.

    I double clicked the round button at the bottom of the phone, the home button.
    The home screen appears..the time...the slider to unlock is visible but when i go to slide the screen to get in to the phone...the lady talks and tells me the screen is locked!!!!
    I double clicked it only to see what apps may be "open" as I was reading that Candy Crush takes a lot of the battery usage....
    I do know my password but right now that is not even an option!

    Do this. Turn the device completely OFF. Afterwards, turn the device back on. Now slide to unlock like you normally would to get to your home screen.

    When I hold down the power off button, that screen appears, I see the "slide to power off" and it highlights it but it won't allow me to slide and cut it off!!!!

    Try rebooting the phone. Hold the power button on top and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo then release the buttons.

    Hold them both down firmly. Not just click. Wait for the Apple logo. Then release.

    After looking around
    It seems as if I am in "voice over mode"

    I'm just going to go over to the phone store.
    I am pretty tech savvy but I can't seem to manage to get out of this voice over mode!!!
    Thanks for all your help guys
    When I get back and have it figured out I'll let you know what I find out!
    I am not the only one to have done this and I'm pretty confident that I won't be the last!!!

    Dear Lady5563, VoiceOver mode is for blind people, it can be very annoying try swiping with two fingers it might work..
