3) power down your device, once its off, hold down the volume button down - home button - power button, hold all three at the same time. Should ask you to confirm enter to download mode.

4( Launch kies and do not plugin your device until it says so

5) Once in kies go to the menu and bar and click on "tools" option and choose "Firmware upgrade and initialization

6) Enter your model number, IE SGH-T889

7) Enter serial number, can be found back of the box or under the battery

8),follow the on screen prompts to connect your device and restore it.

9) once its done installing and booted up you should have your signal back.

Good luck hope it works for you.
Thank you for the in detail explaining of how to do this, it was kind of confusing. The only thing I have an issue with doing that is I don't have my box, and my s/n isn't under the bar code. In settings it gives me a serial number but after putting that in, it stays on connecting normally. But I will try again in an hour or so and update you when I try what you said exactly.

No worries, just hit that thanks button. I had this happen to me before and I didnt even know this option was possible. So i had to swap out my device and then just a few days ago a rom went crazy and wiped it out again. I had a backup plan and it failed. Then i came across a similar thread with this procedure and I tried it and it worked like a charm. Glad it worked out, happy flashing
