Power the device off, while it is off press and hold the Menu button and the Red Power Button at the same time, when the phones boots back up the Safe Mode should be off. If this does not work a Master Reset may be required.

    I GOT IT! My phone was stuck in safe mode for days and I was planning on jumping of a cliff because I couldn't fix it and couldn't find a solution on the entire internet, but... this is the solution:

    TAKE OUT YOUR BATTERY
    HOLD THE POWER BUTTON FOR 15/20 SECONDS
    TROW YOUR BATTERY BACK IN THERE
    JUST TURN IT ON AND THE SAFE MODE IS HISTORY!

    At least for now... let's hope it stays that way! Anyway, this worked for me.. GOOD LUCK!

So when your phone boots up in safe mode, it will only give you the ability to menus without any connection to wireless networks.

to fix this turn off the device and while its off, press and hold MENU and RED keys at the same time until you see the home screen

I have safe mode on my phone and i cant turn it off cant use apps i want how do i turn it off? i have a mytouch 4g i factory reseted and rebooted it doesnt work help


Please check your menu key and see if it is stuck. For your phone to boot into safe mode, the menu key needs to be held at power on, so if after turning it off and doing a factory reset you are still in safe mode, then your menu key stuck. I have heard of the g1 having issues with the menu key getting stuck and a replacement is needed. How old is your phone? Are you still under warranty with tmobile? Let me know if you have any other questions.

The safe mode is on how do I remove it


Using the safe mode feature on your T-Mobile G1 will allow you to easily pin point an issue you are experiencing with the device. Follow these steps to enable and disable the safe mode feature.

  1. HOW TO TAKE YOUR T-MOBILE G1 OUT OF SAFE MODE

    If you have found yourself in safe mode and don't know how to turn it off, or if you are finished troubleshooting, turn your device off as you usually would. When you restart the T-Mobile G1 should not be in safe mode anymore.

  2. If the T-Mobile G1 is still in safe mode when you restart, there is something else wrong with your device. At this point you will need to contact technical support to assist in diagnosing the issue.

After reset , cannot login to gmail


I guess you have factory reset the phone and it swap out everything.

The G1's much-vaunted first step during the setup is to enter your Google login username and password. Once that happens, the G1 attempts to connect to Google's servers to get your email, contacts, and calendar set up.
Here's the thing, though, if (or when) the G1 cannot connect to the servers, you're done. There is no way to exit out of the Google setup screen, no clear way to reset the phone to bypass it (even in "safe mode"), no way to turn on WiFi.

Blue light on top of g1


I solved this problem by booting into SAFE MODE on the G1:
Press Menu Button and Switch on the G1 Phone using Power button. (Do not release menu Key).
That Got it to turn on. but upon power down it did the same thing with blue light. So I always start in SAFE MODE. I will start uninstalling programs until i find out which one is causing problem.

Safe mode


Well I don't know if this will help your G1 but it did to mine. 1st If your charging it disconnect it 2nd Open your back cover and take out the battery 3rd Hold the power button (the red one obviously) for 15 seconds 4th Once your done with that replace the battery and cover Once you turn your phone on it should be out of safe mode otherwise call tmobile or whatever service provider you have they should help or call the android People. Hope this solved your problom.

My g1 has safe mode on the botton of the left corner


I just had the same problem. I had turned on my phone in the usual way and once it loaded I noticed it was in safe mode. This was not something I had told the phone to do. 1st I unplugged the phone from the charger. 2nd I removed the back cover and the battery. 3rd I held down the power key for 15 seconds. 4th I reinstalled the battery and back cover. And finally I turned the phone back on. NOTE: my phone started up and then restarted itself as soon as it was done loading. Now everything appears to be working correctly and efficiently.

PLEASE HELP! my tmobile G1 has been acting strange all day since I turned on phone. The phone went into safe mode now I have I'm in the bootup and it tells me to press home and back to reboot, and it wont...


so when your phone boots up in safe mode, it will only give you the ability to menus without any connection to wireless networks. you wont be able to view any apps or surf the web....

to fix this turn off the device and while its off, press and hold MENU and RED keys at the same time until you see the home screen

if that doesnt work, try to reset the device. i think thats what you were previously trying.....

when the handset is off, press HOME and POWER KEYS at the same time until a triangle with yellow "!" appears. release keys and slide open the keypad. press "ALT" and "W" at the same time until phone reboots. attempt to log in again.

good luck! :)
