    Welcome to Android Central Harvey
    To get it out of safe mode turn off the phone, take out the battery, wait 10 seconds and put it back in. Then turn it on

    Hmm, when you turn it on are you sure you don't have your finger on the menu key? Left of the home button...
    That's how you boot into safe mode so that might be it

    Hmm. Strange, the battery thing always works for my phone. I'll see what else I can find

    I've had the same problem beginning Wednesday, January 8,2013. The first S4mini was deemed DOA and I got a new one Saturday, 1/11/2013. All was well until I turned it on this morning! It came on in SAFE MODE-ground hog day! The tech support cleared it up like this:1. Power it OFF
    2. Press at the same time: UP VOLUME/HOME KEY/and POWER BUTTON.
    3.Watch the top left corner of the screen for the tiny bright blue message about
    REBOOTING when this appears, LET GO OF THE THREE BUTTONS.
    4. Use the Volume button to scroll to the 4th item(some kind of reboot-I can't
    remember the exact title)
    5. Use the POWER button to SELECT it.
    You'll see the little android robot falling down, getting up with a spinning tummy and at the end of his act the phone will be off.
    Power it back on and hopefully you'll be off of SAFE MODE.
    The tech told me to definitely call back(Verizon) if it comes on in SAFE MODE again tomorrow. I always power down at night and charge up.

    I had two phones in less than 7 days do this-something is up.

    Both phones have a broken volume button. The volume button is involved in the process of booting into Safe Mode, as in this video tutorial ...

    Take it to the store where you bought it. Although the warranty might be affected by the accident, maybe the guys there will find a solution. I did the trick with the battery do and it worked, probably it`s something more severe than that

    It's happened to me twice. I called at&T and Samsung. They were useless and Samsung wanted me to mail my phone in and wait NO way. My volume button is dented a little too, the down volume part.
    I had to pull it out a little with a nail file. Be careful! Gently. Power the phone down. Now power it on. Quickly---- Before you see reboot in blue, on the black screen right before, push the volume button as if you were lowering the volume (if it is pushed in too much, use your thumbnail) and the HOME key at the same time. You should see the samsung logo- not the white S4 one, the one in a circle that appears on power up. My volume button is still pushed in a little on the bottom, but this has worked twice now. I don't remember dropping the phone, and this time it happened because I let the battery drain. Samsung told me to keep it no lower than 20% charged. I hope this works for you. If that doesn't work, let it go to the boot menu, select reboot now with the power key and then push in the lower part of the volume button and the home key.

    The part with the nail file seems the most delicate one. I can`t imagine what would happens if somebody`s hand would tremble

    From power off, pressing Volume UP and Power at the same time worked for me (maybe because the volume button was stuck in Volume Down)

    .. this doesn't have a software fix that i know of.

    - Take apart de phone ( )
    - Remove the volumen button
    - Straighten it with a set a pliers.
    - Replace, re-assemble

    Done.

    I think you just restart it, with the s4 mini it comes in when you start it while holding the volume down button. And I think it turns out when you restart.

    I'm having the same problem, my s4 mini is stuck in safe mode. My sound button on the bottom is dented and doesn't work, but my upper one is still working. I have been stuck in safe mode for a while and I haven't yet found a solution. I have also tried a lot of options people gave me. I called samsung and they told me to restore my whole device and sync my data to kies 3. But my computer wont recognize my s4 mini. Anyone have a new solution?
