Debian does not use runlevels in the same as other distros, so chaning runlevels won't help. To boot into CLI mode, you just need to stop the login manager from loading. You can do the following
#update-rc.d -f gdm remove

I don't have any graphical display manager installed and I get console log in, maybe you can just try removing gdm altogether?

GDM stands for Gnome Display Manager, which is a graphical login application. Sorry if you misunderstood, i meant I don't have gdm installed, or xdm, or kdm, or anything like that, and was suggesting you just uninstall the software

Did you click menu at the bottom of the gdm screen and select console login? Also, with debian when the system is first started after a shutdown the Grub bootloader starts and gives you a selection of either the standard kernel-[version] or you can select kernel-[version] (single-user mode) which is right under the standard kernel version and that will give you your console or text based login.
