    Angry Samsung S3 suddenly started self-rebooting!

    Hi, this is my first post

    My Samsung S3 suddenly started self-rebooting every few minutes

    I can reset, wipe all data but my only problem is on how to backup all the data; contacts, messages, photos, etc as I am not able to connected using kies and not even able to backup any data using the partition! It doesn't allow even few moments to copy. It's really annoying and the only thing I wish to do is to backup my data and through the phone.

    I would suggest rebooting into recovery and clearing cache. See if that helps.
    [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
    No personal data gets wiped in this process.

    Welcome to the forums!

    If you take the battery out of the phone for a minute or two, then reinsert it, does the phone turn on by itself?

    If it doesn't you can try booting into Safe mode http://support.verizonwireless.com/s...ase.html/59242 and see if the problem persists.

    If it doesn't you can try booting into Safe mode Safe Mode - Samsung Galaxy S® III and see if the problem persists.

    Great! If your phone behaved normally in Safe mode then your problems were being caused by one (or more) 3rd party apps. After performing a Factory Reset you'll need to be careful with what you install. You probably want to install a few apps and use the phone for a couple of days before installing another set.

    Also be sure to look at the ratings in the Google Play Store - I don't install anything that has less than a 4.0 rating.

    You're going to have to be more specific if you want some help - there's a few things that can cause constant rebooting (bad/stuck Power switch/button; faulty apps; failing battery).
