Please let me know if this method worked out or not. Thank you!
Hi Nick and thank you for your response. Will this wipe out all my pictures, messages, etc?
okay, let me try. I'll respond in a moment.
Okay. I've done all this. The phone turned on and emitted about 6 loud beeps. No signal is on the phone. I used the task killer to safely close all the running apps.
Now I have a signal....what if this keeps happening? is this a routine I should go through every day?
Here are the steps to backup your Contacts to SD:

Okay Nick. I don't know anything (yet) about transferring the data or SD card ... I'm not very 'techy'. or how to get it all back on the phone once it's been transferred providing that I have to do a factory reset? Can I get all that info online?
Uh oh.....none of my contacts is showing up! the screen is blank !!
I restarted the phone (to be on the safe side) and I got signal bars this time. Also, it looks like the Sync started up ....BUT the contacts aren't showing up, but the gallery is okay. When I check the phone log, the previous calls are all there. When I start to manually type in a tele #, then a 'list' of the contacts that fall within the beginning area code will populate on the keypad side but again, not on the contact side. :(
I don't have anything stored on SIM card. I have gmail so the contacts are there except a couple of recent contacts that I added manually to the phone...and, I don't have a signal now. should I do a soft reset by taking out the battery?
Okay, I just went through all the steps and the phone emitted several high pitched beeps, the phone looks like it's syncing (why don't the manual entries on the contacts sync?) I have 2 bars but still no contact list. :(
My contact list just repopulated. The "H" lit up (4G services??) and the list is there.
Nick, do you think I'm going to have to keep resetting the phone like this? I'm willing to wait a bit to see if it acts up again but seriously, this is a huge issue with this phone. Everyone needs to have a working phone and this is my only phone...no home #. I've never had such an issue before. Geez.
okay I will. Thank you nick.
