Samsung Galaxy S3 - boot loop problem?

Hi, My Galaxy S3 is stuck in a boot loop and continuously reboots after the Samsung Galaxy S3 screen is shown. I tried the recovery mode/wipe cache/Reboot, but it isn't working. My battery is full charged, I have also tried pulling the battery and letting it sit before trying any of the above. My goal is to get my personal data off. (pictures/contacts that are currently not backed up), thanks.

How to save all my data in my computer from Samsung S4?

I have downloaded a program that used to keep my photos safe. Lately this program had a problem and output the note : "you are out of memory RAM" and did not open my photos, even though all data that I locked are there as a memory. What should I do? p.s. app has an option that recovers media but could not be applied by Android version above Kitkat 4.4. mine is Lollipop 5.0.1.

How can I unlock my S4 without losing data and pictures etc?

Hi, my S4 has locked itself, so I cannot access the opening screen with a swipe which I always do. I do not normally have to put in a pin or password. I have been through the Android device manager " find my mobile" and set up with a pin that theoretically I should be able to use to unlock from the screen that I now get when I switch on the phone. My screen now opens with the info that I entered into the device manager through another computer. This is Louise's phone. a green phone icon. call owner. Then There is a padlock with "locked by Android device manager " under It.. . I meant to be able to touch the padlock and then enter the PIN code that I set up and it should unlock but nothing happens when I touch the padlock. Is there anything I can do to unlock the phone without losing all my pictures and data, contacts, etc.

Can I change my S3 battery without backing up my data?

It looks like my battery on my S3 is no longer holding decent charge, can I simply replace my battery without losing any data? do I need to backup my data someplace or is a battery replacement a simply process. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Original battery is getting old

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Replacing your battery is a very simple matter, no fair of data lose. It is yet advised to charge your new battery for at least 7-8H before initial use. Turn off your mobile, replace old battery with the new one, and plug it in the wall charger.
