    Did you do anything to the phone before this started. Any system changes or anything, it sounds like you got bootlooped which happens when one messes with the system if they ate rooted. Sometimes in rare cases a bootloop can fix itself if its a simple thing cause as my ex had one not too long ago and it fixed itself later on.

    Well if you arent rooted them i assume that you also dont have CWM installed. Without cwm installed the best way to recover from your bootloop could be a factory reset. I had a bootloop occur once shortly after i bought the phone and i factory reset the phone and it fixed it. You can also go to the samsung website and get the software update for the phone but you have to make sure its the Metro Admire version. The update is the FF18. This only works if you can get into download mode using your usb cable, computer and camera button. If you go to install CWM then you could just grab a stock backup from here and restore. Unfortunately it doesnt seem like youll be able to save what tou had on your phone before because all these methods erase all that. Thats why we tell people to install cwm and make a backup just for when this stuff happens.
