Is there anyway to get photos off my old mobile phones that do not operate correctly?

by on February 14, 2011

Q: I have a few old mobile phones, some of them are broken, some of them just have a blank screen but still charge and switch on. Can I retrieve my photo’s from them? I’m looking to upload them to my computer but have no idea if this is possible. As they are old I can’t remember if the info is stored to the phone or the SIM. I have tried putting the old SIMs into new phones but the photos aren’t there so I’m guessing they are stored to the phones themselves. Can anyone help?

    If the phones have a usb plug, you can try plugging them into the computer. If you’re lucky the computer will detect them and you’ll be able to pull the photos off.

    Otherwise you’d need to try a professional data recovery service. This type of work would probably cost you thousands of dollars.
