My friend dropped her phone and it doesn't turn on anymore, but she has a dual-SIM spare phone. So the problem didn't seem too bad at first. I told her I'd help her with the backup restoration, set everything up on her new (old) phone.
After 30mins of trying to restore the backup from her old phone and moving the SIM card to the new phone...

"But I didn't have a backup and the SIM card tray isn't working. Can you also help me recover my 10 000 pictures and songs?"

I guess I'm done here

    You are done and your “friend” can start from scratch.

    You know what UART connector is ? Check if the storage is OK. If no then you are trully done. If its OK then the data can be saved.

    @lastNick we're still friends :D, and she also studies CS, I was just expecting more...knowledge

    @Haxk20 she doesn't want to open the case, so she'll just send it to her phone manufacturer and see

    @shinypotato I will tell you what will happen when she sends it. They will tell her that its unfixable which is bullshit because they are lazy bastards and will tell her that they will replace the phone.

    She will lose all data because she isnt getting that phone back ever again.

    Or maybe which is very very very unlikely and i doubt it they will say OK look at the motherboard and see whats fucked up and fix it. But again thats too much work so they will just replace it.

    IPhones back up all your shit to cloud, so if you lose your phone you can wipe it remotely and then just chuck all your stuff back on a new phone. dead simple, dead straightforward, no fucking about. There must be a similar scenario for android surely?

    @helloworld But most people dont care to enable it when they get the device

    Why do people have 1000s of photos ? Just why?

    @helloworld there are people who don't want to backup to the cloud. For privacy or for convenience reasons.

    Ask if she had dirty pictures on it. On an entirely unrelated note, many guys from here will gladly fix it for her.
