Hi,

Remove the memory card of the phone and clean all applications, also do factory reset of phone. I think there is some application  flaw that makes it reboot everytime.

good - we getting somewhere:)

1 uninstall kies - restart pc -delete the Samsung folder in documents-and install kies - fresh install

2 Dial *#*#7284#*#* This will open up the Phone Util menu
Ensure PDA is selected for USB. If it already selected to PDA, try reselecting it by selecting Modem, then PDA, press the Back key, retry with Kies
