Hi grnow,

Before you perform these steps, quickly go into settings and sync your Google account so it backs up a few things to the cloud.

1. Plug in your Note 3 to a pc and it will come up like it does when you plug in a USB.
2. Copy all your data onto the computer.
3. On the phone, go into Settings
4. Scroll down to General tab and tap on it
5. Select Backup and reset
6. Tap on factory data reset
7. Read the warnings and then tap on reset device
8. Choose Delete All. This will then reset your phone and restart it as if you got it out of the box
9. Go through the setup options
10. Check to see if the phone is fine
11. Restore the data you backed up
