I a so glad I found this place it really helped me to unblock my galaxy ,restoring it to factory reset and the best of all I did not loose my contacts and my pictures because I pull off my sd card and my t mobile sim card before doing the reset factory,except for some apps that I had from google store which I won't miss a lot since I can get them back again if I want cause they were free, thank you so much,
and I would recommend to do the same I did, with the cards take them off before you do any factory reset so that way you wont loose anything but some apps you may have get from droid store which are free, but those that came on with the phone you won't loose them,
