If you are in a situation where your Motorola DROID suddenly won't work, you will probably have the "safe mode" feature activated. What is this, you might ask. In this case, you need to enable the "safe mode" function on your phone. This feature is built into several different types of mobile devices including: Blackberry PDAs, iPhone, and many others. If your phone doesn't come with this, you may have to go out and find or download a program to enable safe mode on your phone.
How does this work? When you activate safe mode on your Motorola DROID, it will not allow you to make or receive calls as usual, instead, it will put you into a mode that cannot be used for anything else, such as dialing or sending text messages. However, you can still use the phone's features such as browsing the internet, listening to music, or enjoying your video viewing. This mode is perfect for those who frequently use their cell phones while they are driving.
To use this feature, you first need to turn your phone off. To do this, simply touch the "Settings" icon located on the lower right hand corner of your phone and scroll down to where it says "Settings." You will see that there is a gear symbol that says "Rearrange," which will turn the phone into an "unlockable" device. You will also see a tiny arrow on the screen that says "Settings." Once you do that, touch the "omnia" button located next to the" touchscreen slider" on the left hand side of your cell phone.
By turning your phone into a non unlocked state, you will be able to use the features of your cell phone while you are in the safe mode. This makes the Motorola DROID even more useful because it enables you to use most applications and features of your phone, such as SMS (text messaging) applications and MMS (multimedia messaging) applications, while in the safe mode. It also helps you avoid getting your phone damaged if you accidentally put it into "omnia" mode.
Another useful feature of this feature is the ability to turn off the GPS feature of your cell phone. If you are driving somewhere and want to make sure that you are really going to reach your destination, you can simply turn off the GPS feature on your phone. Not only will this help you save on fuel but you will also be able to avoid accidents or getting stuck somewhere. You don't have to worry about turning the feature on just to check where you are instead you have to turn it off manually.
Another useful feature of this feature is the ability to turn off your phone when you are at a hotel or a coffee shop. You don't have to get up from where you are sitting and unlock your cell phone just to check if you left any important messages for your friends. This function is only available on some models of Motorola DROID. But if your phone is equipped with this feature, then you can enjoy your vacation knowing that your messages will be safely tucked away. Just turn off the feature and leave your phone to relax and wait for your call.
With the advanced security features integrated in this mobile phone, it can be used for personal and professional purposes. You can use this feature to make calls without using your cell phone's wireless carrier network. You also don't have to worry that your call will drop because the receiver will automatically answer the call even if it is not connected to the network. If your caller is on the list of contacts and you need to switch to another contact, all you have to do is select the person whose number you have saved and turn to the corresponding function.
This is the best mode for people who travel a lot or who use their cell phones everywhere they go. If you use this feature on your DROID, you can easily roam around and continue your work or pleasure without having to worry about missing a call. So if you are still using your phone in the normal mode, you should consider switching to the safe mode. This will help you conserve your talk time as well as your battery power.
