    Hi
    I am curios ..did this happen when you allowed an update from samsung ..?
    Same thing happened to me
    First off the phone stopped opening on finger print
    That was ok i still had the number unlocke

    Then after 2 weeks or so that too stoped working
    I had used a massive amount of data and photo's
    Dozens of contacts, i daily sent and got dozens of texts
    And made at least 4o calls a day

    I belive they consider it unfair usage and block the phone
    Factory rest sorted the phone cleared everthing
    But most data was lost

    I wont use an android again.
    I now have an iphone :)

When you perform a factory reset on Android, you will return the device to the condition it was when shipped from the factory. A factory data reset can help fix most issues that occur on Android. Any incorrect settings, glitches, bugs, viruses, or software problems on the device will be wiped clean.

But the files deleted from an Android phone aren't actually wiped from its memory. Instead, the files are only marked as deleted and invisible. The system will write data over those files in the future. You can later use specialized data recovery tool to scan the Android memory for deleted files and try to recover them.

I would say yes there are a number of data recovery programs available which can do this for you but you have be real quick with the recovering process, because further delay means that place where your data previously was gets over written by something else. You can use software to recover you data back. But do remember act fast over it and don't try writing something more over it otherwise the chances of getting your things back will decrease.

SOURCE: Samsung SCH-U740 Master Reset

Let me elaborate. On your phone press the:

1. Menu--scroll to Tools & Settings---press OK
2. Look for Security, press OK
3. Enter the last 4 digits of your phone #, or whatever you set the lock code to.
4. There should be an option to delete contacts. Becareful not to press the Reset Default option, for it will erase everything (ringtones, pix, filx, screensavers, etc..)

**If the Security option is not seen in the Tools and Settings, then choose Call Settings or Phone Settings. It should be in one of these.

SOURCE: Need to reset samsung galaxy s2 phone. Can't

If you want to try a simple solution, Go to Settings, Wireless and Networks, then Turn on "Airplane Mode" wait until you see an airplane on the top status bar of your phone... then Turn OFF "Airplane mode"
If that doesn't work, and you want to reset your phone, take it to the place you bought it or any place that is on your carrier.
