Hello guys,

My galaxy s3 out of sudden stuck on loading screen. The samsung service told me that the phone is dead and won't work, but I beg to differ since it is on the loading screen. I need to recover the contacts by any means. Not all contacts are synced to google. Can anyone help?

Tried to access recovery (vol up+home+power) phone not booting at all and I have to remove the battery

If download mode is broken then you have a hard brick, try a usb jig but probable you need a new motherboard.
