hello, I have a problem and was hoping some one can steer me in the correct direction . Two days age , I turned on my Galaxy J3 and the screen said " erasing" with a spinning circle.
not wanting to erase all my info( I assume) I shut it off. later when I turned it on again, I needed to log into Google , I fooled the screens and inserted ID & Password and followed the steps and the dialog about an error showed and that I had to wait 24 hours to try again.
I waited 24hrs and tried again and the same error and I still can't log on to Google and use my phone.
Anyone have a fix for this or do I have to send it in for repair and risk loosing all my contact info ?
Thanks in advance
Can you sign into your google account on a computer and see if that phone is registered to that google account? It sounds like it erased the phone. Can you get to the recovery mode and do a factory reset?
I have loged into my google/gmail account and my phone is listed under the device heading. I am avoiding doing a reset as I do not want to lose all my contacts and phone #'s. I'm not even sure that I can get to the recovery/reset mode on my phone.
You don't need to get to your contacts through the phone. You can see into your Gmail account from a COMPUTER or another device.
