But repair often wipes out what's in the phone. Recovery is never cheap so ask drivesavers.com if they do such work.
I see you admitted putting off dealing with it so that's good to know you knew the risks of no backup. In the future consider DropBox to move items over when the USB sync/transfers fail but in this case, too late for that.
Hi, let me preface this by saying I am an idiot. For a good time my phone has been having issues and I've mostly just been procrastinating trying to deal with them, or get a new phone to no avail.
I have the Straight Talk/Tracfone version of the Galaxy S2 (as can be seen here:http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cel...SGH-S959ZKATFN). A couple of months ago it stopped being able to be connected to my PC through USB. Then charging became a huge hassle as I assume the charging port started to weaken or something, basically I'd have to play around with the charger and get it in a certain position for it to charge.
Now the phone will not turn on. When I do try and power it on, the loading screen that says Samsung Galaxy S2 displays, but it never reaches the second screen. It just repeats the Samsung Galaxy S2 part 3 or 4 times and stops. It's not an issue of battery, I have two batteries for it actually and even when I do get it to charge it appears to not charge at all.
I'm fully aware that this is probably my own fault and I might have to face the consequences, but is there anyway I can get my pictures off of the phone? It's on the phone's physical harddrive. I'm an idiot and did not back them up.
I appreciate any troubleshooting help you can provide. Thank you.
