Sonos Move while camping

I’ve had this happen twice now while camping.    I successfully pair the Move to my phone via bluetooth and listen to music.  But then someone accidentally hits the bluetooth/wifi button, and the Move starts looking for wifi.  Since there is no wifi in the wilderness, it just goes into a loop.  There is no way to cancel and re-pair to bluetooth.   And then my Move is bricked for the rest of the camping trip.  This is not a one-off.  Is this a product flaw, or is this product just not made for camping?  If I got the sonos Roam, would that help, or would it have the same issue?

Power off the Move completely by pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds until you hear a descending chime. Then wait about 15 seconds and power the Move back on again. Then redo the Bluetooth pairing process as explained in this article:

Thank you GuitarSuperstar.  I have done this sequence exactly on both occurences.  And when it powers back up, it resumes looking for the wifi, and there is nothing I can do to interrupt.   I have to wait until I get back home and reboot on the charging station.
