    great idea and best luck,can’t wait for version 2.0 when they simply convert a sprinter van to a mobile repair shop and bring it you,savng a trip or two and office overhead,expenses.
    but good luck with this.

    I have a Samsung with a lots of kids photos on it. Broke the phone a couple of years again, it’ll charge but the screen is black. Would they be able to recover the photos from the phone?

        Well my phone is kinda “curved” cos I bent it by accident. It may not be a widespread Samsung issue :D

      Will your computer recognize the phone if you plug it into the USB? If so, you should be able to download the photos to it.

        It does recognise it but it was password protected and I have tried 3rd party software to unlock it but no luck.

          Try this:

          Connect a keyboard to your device with a USB cable. (You can get a connection for your phone with an adaptor at the end of it for a keyboard USB plug)

          Press any two keys on the keyboard, then enter your password (the third key you press will be the first digit of your password). Use the backspace key if you make a mistake

          Then get the charging lead with a USB connection and connect to the PC.

          May / may not work but worth a try.

      I’d imagine they will attach it to a temp screen or a monitor to enter the password and then copy the data off of it.

      Do some reviews on this company, be sure you and they know what you want done, and exactly how much it will cost, and also when will the device be returned? I have heard mixed reviews of their service.

        Excellent, thanks! I will look into them and some other providers. All I’m interested in is recovering the photographs.

          @Wilhelm.
          I had the very same black screen problem with a Samsung last year, couldn’t unlock it etc…needed to get a lot of stuff off the drive.
          After a while it suddenly dawned on me how to gain access.
          Did you at anytime have Find My Phone or any similar type app installed on it ?
          ;)

        Well I’m not a Teenage Girl
        Nor do I TikTok about on the Snapchat

        And I’ve a OnePlus
        And it’s the best phone etc device I’ve ever had
        And in the words of the late Mattie Pilates
        I’ll never look back

        Worth every penny

          I’ve always had you down as a sophisticated woman V despite your occasional caterwauling and carrying on.
          I imagine the excellent camera in the OnePlus only enhances your photogenic features.
          If only they made an old-fashioned box camera …

          Wahaay !

          Thinking of upgrading but can’t decide on the 8T or the 8Pro.
          The thing is I’m still on a 6T and it’s working perfectly but I do quite fancy the 5G.
          I gave Lady Charger my old 5 a couple of years ago and it still works as good as the day it came out of the box.

          Love the OnePlus phones. Have had a 3 and a 5. Got a refurbished Huawei P20 most recently and absolutely adore it. I’ve had it a year and it’s still works perfectly.

          The Chinese can have all my boring data. It’s a brilliant phone.
