FTM is "Field Test Mode".

Does it turn off if you hold down the power?

Also, if you can get it to shut off, when you turn it back on, make sure the Volume Down or UP keys are not stuck or pressed down.

I just held the power button till my phone turned back on. Then the phone turned to FTM. So I kept the power button down. Till it shut off and on. It finally came on.

Sounds like the power button is broken. Let the power completely run down and shut off. This may kick it out of FTM mode.

i did all that. when i power on, ftm continues to come up. i have held the volume down and power simultaneously and ftm keeps on coming on. for over three hours this has persisted, the battery has refused to run down too despite that this problem started when battery was only 3 percent. ZTE Z981 IS THE WORST PHONE ON EARTH, PLS DONT BUY IT. Anyone has an idea what i should do to rectify this?
