The cost of recovery is too high for most and required sky high tech to most. That is, while it may be possible to put the flash memory chip (it's soldered down) on a same model phone ($$$!!!) and hope. But the recovery should be a few thousand when completed.
If you can find those that do such work.
My mum's phone is completely smashed on the screen, and since a half a tonne horse stood on it it has become bent a bit too. The battery looks completely fine, but from the simcard holder and up it's bent out of shape.
Is there something or some way I can get the photos off? It's dead, wont turn on but since the battery looks fine I'm trying to charge it.
