    My lg ally has been stuck in safe mode for the past few days now. I have tried a power reboot, as well as a battery pull, yet no luck. Because of this, I cant use any of my application downloads. Someone please help me.

    When you say power reboot do you mean a hard reset?..It appears something has hung it up and I would recommend backing up by a google sync and hard reset through settings/privacy... Then install one app at a time because its hung up somewhere...

    Have you tried AllyRR tool for some people it was able to pull them out of safe mode by booting recovery and in there you can clear cache and data

    You got me thinking... He probably cant get to privacy in safe mode... I feel dumb now... heh... Never had mine in safe so not sure.. I do know with my droid it was just a few key presses during on soft reset that took it to the loader, where you could hard reset... Its not that simple on Ally I take it...

    Thanks for the advice...but the hard reset found under settings/privacy unfortunately did not work on my phone.

    Even after the hard reset its still in Safe mode??.. Im sure its still under warranty and I would either call tech or go to a verizon store for replacement...

    I have a similar situation, I have an Ally that's stuck in emergency calls only, we did a complete wipe under factory data reset>reset phone. When it booted back up, was still in emergency calls only...LG doesn't even have an answer. I have searched everywhere...does anyone have a fix for this?

    I figured out how to get around all those lock ups and bricks that plague the Ally! If you are stuck in a loop and can't get to a recovery screen this is what you do.

    1. Take out the battery.

    2. Take out the SD Card.

    3. Hold down the Up/Down Volume, Home, and Power button for 10 seconds.

    4. Leaving out the battery and SD Card still plug in the charger cable and turn it on normally by pressing the power button. It should cycle and viola! You are back in business!

    I hope this helps! I was this close to trashing it and going to IPhone, but I don't want my data capped! What BS!!!

    My LG Ally was stuck in safe mode. I tried everything, hard reset etc. without any luck. I rebooted holding down various combinations of buttons. This is how I eventually got out of safe mode. Turn off the phone. As it's rebooting, press the up and down volume buttons along with the camera shutter button on the opposite side of the phone.
