    This is the 2nd time in the last month i've accidentally turned "safe mode" on.

    I have had the phone for 5+ years, & don't do this. (unfortunately, i don't recall, nor did i notate - the simple solution to this issue - when i found it via a "google/android search").

    I don't want or need "safe mode" on - as it removes most of my downloaded apps.

    The t-mobile websites, & a few others - only provide 1 solution, that would insult - even the least among us: "non-tech. People".

    *(it is not just: "power off your phone", &/or, just: "re-start it").

    Not the solution.

    Thanks to all of you: Altruistic, selfless, & intelligent people - who help others out!

    Still Waiting For An Answer To My Question, I Posted.

    *I Apologize For Asking The Same Question Today, (6 Days Later), But It Hasn't Received Any Replies, Yet.

    On (3/25/17), I Posted A Question For The 1ST TIME - In This Great "Android Central Forum".

    I Think My 1st Question In This Forum, Was: (Too Long, Too Convoluted, & Too Phone Specific), For The Great People In This "Android Central Forum", To Even Want To Relpy To It.



    ● Android 4.2.2 = "Safe Mode" ON
    ● Downloaded Apps = Disabled
    ● EZ Remedies = Have Failed

    Welcome, and please forgive the lack of replies. Your original question was perfectly okay.

    I'm not familiar with Samsung devices myself, and we don't have a specific forum for your device, so I'll move it to the S7e forum, where there will be knowledgeable Samsung personages.

    Looks like this landed in the wrong forum, hence the lack of replies.

    I am not sure if this will work on your phone, but it works on the S7 edge and you can give it a try.

    While the phone is on, hold the power and volume down buttons for approximately 10 seconds. If it works you will go into the Maintenance Boot Mode. From there just follow the menu.

    Sadly, per T-mobiles documentation on the SamsungGalaxy 'Light' phone, the instructions are indeed to:
    1. Press & Hold the power Key
    2. Tap 'Restart'


    Note: this is different than just powering off & powering back on the device. This is actually telling the phone to Restart. Just pointing this out as "power off & power on" is not the same as "restart" -- same as you can power off/on a computer, but restarting a computer is completely different process.

    One more thing you can try is remove the battery and leave it out for a couple of minutes.
