    not sure what happened. I shut phone off every night to charge. A few minutes ago turned phone on and it was in SAFE MODE didnt even know there was such....In mode some apps and folders didnt show
    I rebooted phone and it appears to be back to normal EXCEPT am missing some folders I set up and possibly some apps but just cant figure which ones other than my Big Buttons keyboard app needed to be reset.

    Has anyone encountered this?

    Safe mode only allows system apps to run. I've noticed it also causes some widgets and such to reset. I don't know why it just put itself into safe mode...sounds like some sort of error occurred to trigger it, although I don't know what.

    Maybe you pressed the volume button while it was booting accidentally

    I thought safe mode was
    Power + Vol. D + Home

    i recently cleaned my buttons with bleach and water because they got sticky and removed all the pocket lint out of the ear and speaker grills. its probably safer to use some iso alcohol if you have it but i just let it dry for 8 hrs

    Wow come to think of it while I did not clean any buttons I did just as I was booting up was cleaning the screen protector with a dab of cleaning solution on a piece of cloth....didnt even occur to me till just now..maybe that was the cause

    Nope, the safe mode hotkeys is Volume "UP" when you boot on the device, just hold the volume up while it's booting and it'll boot into safe mode

    I thought it was hold power button then hold the reboot when the window pops up.

    It is, plus there is one from when it's turned off too. Just haven't tried it when off yet, but it involves holding the home button with some others.
