I have a problem with my camera on my S3, I get an error message and it won't open. I have been told to reset the phone. I have done a back up. What I want to know is how do I get all the info back onto the phone after I have done the reset? I had an iPhone before and did everything through iTunes, so this android way is new to me.

Are you using a SD Card to store your pics, music, etc? I assume you have a gmail account set on the device - you should have your contacts, calendar, etc synced with that so that stuff will pull back down.

You can even re-download your apps from a PC browser by going to market.android.com. The only problem is that you have to download each app individually and it takes some time. Also, you lose any data in the apps (like game levels) if you're not rooted.
