Question Boot Screen Constantly Cycles

I've looked at many other topics with similar problems, but mine is unique. With my phone, my cell and internet service always kicks out. I usually put it in and out of airplane mode to fix it. When that doesn't work, I just take out the battery and put it back in and all is well... for awhile.

This time when I took my battery out and put it back in, it won't completely boot up. I get the GALAXY S II logo, then the sprint 4g logo and all the flying yellow boxes and stuff, but it freezes on the 4g logo for about 5 seconds. Then it does the yellow boxes and freezes on the 4g logo again. So it's constantly looping the sprint boot image and won't actually allow me into the phone.

I have never damaged, rooted, flashed, or done anything to my phone except use it. I assume taking the battery out without shutting down the device has caused some sort of firmware problem? I tried to wipe the cache partition from recovery mode with no luck.

I also have the option of rebooting, updating from sd, wiping data/factory reset, and wiping cache partition. I need to fix this problem, but don't want to erase all my apps, pictures, data, and settings. Is there any way I can save my files or maybe fix the firmware or whatever without clearing all my data? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
