I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 that had a virus, so I reset it to factory settings. Before I did this, I saved my photos to the Cloud, and my apps and contacts to my sd card. I removed my sd card before I reset it. Once I got the phone going again, I put the sd card back in. I don't know how to get my contacts or apps from my sd card installed back onto my phone! Does anybody know how to do this?

open your phonebook>settings>import/export>import from storage, if it fails try moving the vcf file for example if it is on the external memory card move it to the internal memory

It's easy if you backed it up before. Just install KIES software. Connect your phone to computer using USB and open KIES. It will then detect your phone. Click on the Backup/Restore Tab and then select restore data. Click on Find Folder and browse the backup data folder that you had created earlier and click ok. It will then automatically restore all your apps that you backed up earlier :)

You just need to signin to your cloud from your phone and then you can get back your pictures from cloud folder.

Thanks
