How to Get Your Android Phone Out of Safe Mode

One of my friends suddenly found that her phone had put itself in “safe mode”. She had no idea how she had done it and no idea how to get it out of that mode. After looking around on the internet, I found a solution that worked for her.

  1. Turn the phone off.
  2. Turn it back on and hold the “up” volume button.

Pretty easy, but it seemed to work for her.

Hope this helps!

  47. Jeanne says:

    It happened to me. Verizon said turn phone off wait two minutes. Take back off, then remove battery, then sims card count to ten. Put sims card in, then battery cover on. Turn back on should be removed. If continues could be an app and has to be removed by removing severel apps as they can hide in them.
