In this post we’ll explain how to reset a frozen OnePlus 6T. Whether your phone is completely unresponsive or acting up, this is the easiest way to fix it. While the latest OnePlus 6T running Android Pie is fast and powerful, issues and problems do occasionally surface. Follow our steps below to fix them in under a minute.

How to Reboot a Frozen OnePlus 6T
As a reminder, this will not erase any data or content on your phone.
- Press and hold down the Power and Volume down buttons at the same time
- Hold the Power button down for 10-15 seconds, or until the phone vibrates and restarts
- If the phone turns off let go then press power again for 1-2 seconds to restart the phone
During your initial device setup may have seen this tip for how to reboot your phone. If not, now you know.
“If your device is unresponsive, press and hold down the Power key for 10 seconds to restart it.”
The official instructions from T-Mobile suggest you may have to hold down the power keys for up to 30 seconds, depending on how frozen your device is. You know it worked because the phone will automatically turn off, power cycle, and reboot back to normal operation.
If your OnePlus 6T is completely frozen, the screen is black, or it’s unresponsive and you can’t select any of the on-screen options, this still works. Just keep holding down the buttons for over 10 seconds and it will do a hard reboot. This should resolve almost all minor problems.
