Recover photos from dead phone


#1

Over the past few weeks, it’s been getting harder and harder to recharge my phone. I believe the plug in port is damaged on my phone. I finally gave up and purchased a new phone. I usually download my photos to my computer as a backup on a regular basis. But I haven’t backed-up the latest 500 photos. When my old phone was down to 10% battery, I tried to upload all of my photos to the cloud since I couldn’t connect my phone to my computer. But the battery ran out with about 200 photos to go. I can’t get my phone to charge anymore. Is there a way to recover the photos from a dead phone? Are they saved on the SIM card?

Before anyone asks, yes, I’ve tried different recharging devices and cords. I have one cord that if I push really hard into the phone (with a slight upward angle), I was able to get a recharge for about 30 seconds until the connection gets lost again.

I high recommend an auto backup on WiFi for photos
check to see if you set up google to do this here https://photos.google.com/
other options are Flickr (free for now) Amazon Prime Photos (included in Prime)

if they are not backup then one option would be to get the charger port repaired at a local repair place like https://www.cellphonerepair.com/

To directly answer your question, I’m afraid that answer is no. Generally, nothing other than service information is stored on a smartphone’s SIM.
