 QUICK TIPS! Safe Mode   One of the more common root causes of problems like slow/sluggish behavior, random device restarts, freezing, unexpected errors and other unexpected impacts are caused by 3rd party applications.  Testing the device in safe mode can help isolate and eliminate 3rd party apps as the source of a customer's frustration.   For the S8 and above, Samsung has more user-friendly ways of booting the device into Safe mode:   1.  Press and hold the Power button until you receive the on-screen options. (Power off, Restart, and Emergency mode)   2. Press and hold the on-screen Power-off option until Safe mode appears.     3. Once Safe mode appears, select it and the device will reboot in Safe mode.   Note: You can also use Bixby to boot into Safe Mode as well by remember you must have a Samsung account active on the device before you can utilize Bixby.  Once you voice wake up Bixby, just state "Safe Mode" and it will bring up the above picture.

Question  Why is my phone freezing, rebooting, draining my battery, and/or slow?   Answer   Introduction One common root cause of concerns such as freezing, random restarts, battery drain, sluggish or random actions, unexpected errors, or other unexpected behaviors are 3 rd party apps.   Safe mode prevents 3 rd party apps from initializing, allowing devices to be tested without 3 rd party interference.   Step 1 – Unmount the Memory Card   Similar to 3 rd party apps, corrupt, damaged, or performance-impacting memory cards can cause freezing, random actions, etc. The first step in the Safe Mode Experience is to unmount the memory card and retest the device.   Remember: Samsung strongly recommends the customer use a class 10 or newer memory card for best results.   Step 2 – Retest in Safe Mode   Once the memory card has been eliminated as the root cause, using safe mode will help eliminate a 3 rd party app as the root cause. If the concern doesn’t persist in safe mode, the root cause is a 3 rd party app.   Tip: Safe mode doesn’t pinpoint which 3 rd party app is responsible. Test by removing any recently added or updated applications and retest.   Step 3– Reset All Settings   Once the memory card and 3 rd party apps have been eliminated as the root cause, reset all settings will be beneficial for testing prior to a factory data reset.   Tip: Resetting all settings and/or resetting network settings may delete saved Wi-Fi connections, Bluetooth pairings, etc.

The device has not been reported as lost or stolen or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked. The device has been active for at least 12 months on the same account (under Equipment History) and a payment has been made within the last 90 days of that 12-month activation anniversary.
