Resetting downloads everything you have ever purchased, no matter which device you purchased it on or if you uninstalled it. It doesn't redownload the free apps. You have to remember what you had installed. It's a mess.
- 100's of apps to redownload and reinstall and reconfigured
- Audible Audiobooks, BeyondPod Podcasts, Zinio Magazines have to be copied back to internal card.
- Widget configurations
- Custom Launcher configurations
- Contact re-linking between all of my contacts on Exchange, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google alone can take an hour.
I don't want to Factory Reset my phone.
I don't want to root my phone.
I just want Samsung to fix this issue with an update.
I couldn't agree more with rlopin!
It's not worth the effort to FR, especially when there's a chance that the problem may come back!
I can't understand why Samsung S3 users let Samsung get away with this vulnerability!
