You can simply back up all of your data. If you are using a Samsung Galaxy series phone or note, you can download Samsung Kies. Once installed to your Mac or PC, this program will let you back up and sync your device. This way, once you restore it, you'll be able to get all of your information and apps back on your phone where they belong. Follow the steps in our main guide, by scrolling down to the bottom of the linked article snippet, and clicking the option to read the full article. Once there, you'll be able to read about Samsung Kies, and how to install it on your Mac or PC.
