Nokia 2 V - Power Up in Safe Mode

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

An alternate method is available if the device can be powered on and is responsive.

  1. With the device powered off, press and hold the Volume down and Power button for approximately 3 seconds (device vibrates).
  2. Continue to hold the Volume down button and release only the Power button.

    Note This may take up to 30 seconds; image below is an example.
