Safe Mode starts the Blackberry with no third-party apps or themes, just like Windows. It makes troubleshooting or removing apps very easy.
- To turn on safe mode, follow these steps:
- Do a battery pull.
- After you reinsert the battery, watch for the red light-emitting diode (LED). When the LED goes out press and hold the ESCAPE key until the phone finishes booting. Release the ESCAPE key.
- When the phone is booted, you’ll see a dialog box telling you that you are in Safe Mode. Click OK.
There is a safe mode indicator in the status section of your home screen.
To turn off safe mode, just do another battery pull.
