Default Phone bootloops please help!!!!!!!

Hi People,

I recently rooted my phone and things were good for 3 days until I screwed up, I installed "Disable service" app and I froze a service called "SIM Toolkit -stkapservice" and after restarting the phone is not bootling up, the boot logo appears again and again..

I'm not sure if disabling that service cause that, I have been disabling some others as well like qcconnectivity service, wiper app, smartcard service, picoservice, geocode service

Could someone please help me what to do ASAP? Should i flash it again? is so all my user data will be deleted again right?

Is there any way without deleting user data and settings? I've been hearing words like CWM, wipe dalvik cache etc but im not an experienced user, I just rooted and messed up my phone..

Could someone please advise me how to fix it?

what do you mean user data? pictures?
or saved logins & settings?
if you do wipe to cache it will remove your settings, not your personal files.

Well, only if you had clockworkmod recovery, but if you don't have a custom recovery installed then no. A custom recovery would allow you to backup the full data partition, but OEM (stock) recovery doesn't.

Your only option is to do a full factory data reset I'm afraid. Also wipe the cache.

To make a full backup is easy once you have cwm. Also, make sure you flash the cwm image made for YOUR device! Other images for different phones aren't going to work on yours! It will hard brick your device!

To make a android backup (nandroid backup), just follow this step-by-step tutorial:
