    Try booting into Recovery Mode and wiping the system cache partition. You won't lose any personal data: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    If that doesn't help, try removing your SD card and rebooting. A corrupt card can cause various problems.

    What about Safe Mode? Does that work? Instructions at the bottom of that same article I linked.

    Did you get an update recently for the Android OS? If so, talk to your carrier or to Samsung, and let them know the update may have bricked you phone. One other thing to try would be a new battery.

    if I try to go into safe mode it does the same thing and freezes on the at&t logo. I don't think I got any update unless it downloaded automatically.

    I think it's time to talk to AT&T or Samsung. How old is the phone? Is it still in warranty?
