    i just got done charging my phone while the phone was off and now when it booted up it now says Safe Mode in the bottom left corner. i turned it off and on twice still there. How did this happen and how can i put it back into normal mode?
    Aslo most of my downloaded apps are gone. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I didn't know you could boot an Android phone into SAFE mode, but it sounds like Windows, ie it loads a minimum set of drivers with no third party apps. It would be interesting to find out how to do it intentionally :)

    I think what he did, both volume buttons and the power button is how to get into it. (and out of it)

    safe mode has been around for a while on android but it is a little different on each phone I believe
