I've seen that on some other Xperia phones, you hold down the menu button as the phone boots, but the Ray doesn't have a hard menu button soooo.... I tried holding the home button, then the volume buttons, and neither worked. Is there a way to boot the Ray into safe mode? Might come in handy some day.

Hi, to boot phone in safe mode, power off and on phone, press (touch) and hold Menu button when the text Sony Ericsson appears. You should see the 'Safe mode' at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks, but it doesn't work. I'm touching the menu button from the moment "Sony Ericsson appears" until the phone is booted. Here is the boot sequence:
-little sony animation, then "sony ericsson"
-"Telus" (my carrier)
I've tried starting at the first sony ericsson, starting at the second one, stopping at telus, stopping when my launcher comes up, nothing seems to work. Is it another button? Am I seriously doing this wrong? Can carriers disable safe mode?

Yes! It works! Thank you very much!
edit: Aaaagh. It's so finicky. After turning off and trying again, I can't get into safe mode any more! So frustrating. Tapping the menu button repeatedly definitely worked once though.
