Can pix be retrieved from an old broken phone?

Recommended Posts

My old phone broke, I trashed it and now have a new phone (same sim card). There are some pix that were on my old (old meaning a month or so) phone that if I can, I want to retrieve- they never carried over. I didn't think it was even possible but am now seeing on line that it might be. Does anyone know if this is possible even though my phone is gone? I was thinking maybe they can go into my account somehow and finagle something, ? Cuz you know how sometimes they can retrieve text messages that were once there??, so thats kinda the same thing I thought. Before I call AT&T I wanted to see if anyone had any insight. Thanks.

I'm assuming if the pics were saved to the memory of the phone itself than there probably is no record of them....OR if they were picture messaged they MIGHT be able to be retrieved....but I'm pretty sure it takes a lot of work and to retrieve old text messages they really only do that in emergency situations.

 

But why not call just in case? It's always worth a shot!

i had a similar situation and although my provider is different (I have verizon) when I purchased my new phone they hooked up my old phone to this machine and transferred everything to my new phone. my old phone was broken as well. if you have time one day I would pop into a retailer and ask about it there. its worth a shot, I know its so awful to lose those pics!

You actually have to have your phone and buttons have to work. So for pix they have to actually be able get to the pix, they don't need to see it cause they know what buttons to push but if they don't work then they can't. Or if your phone was freezing, or continuously restarting they wouldn't be able to get the pix either. For pix they go in and have them all saved to your card, the machine they use is for contacts.

i guess it must be different from provider to provider because "the machine" transferred not only my contacts, but my custom ring tones, pics, music and calendar. and I switched phone manufacturers and I still managed to get all my stuff.

You got all your custom ring tones and pictures from Verizon Frank? I'm so jealous and bummed! I messed up my phone and got a new one and lost all of that stuff. I had to return the phone when I got the new one through the insurance!

Honestly I was shocked I got to keep all my stuff! in the past when I have gotten a new phone at best I could retrieve contacts. I just started paying for insurance...my new phone is not the most functioning piece of equipment.

verizon must have just got new stuff! cause i buy a new vzw phone at least every six months and when I got one in Feb they couldn't transfer my pics w/ the machine, FSIL is the saleswoman we always go to so she gets sales out of us and her boss loves us so he gives us AMAZING cell deals!

 

But for vzw you should go online and put in the backup thing, some phones you can back up w/out having to get online, so if your phone is crushed or lost or something happens like it keeps resetting (they have to be able to turn the phone on and have it be stable for a certain amount of time to tranfer) and they can't transfer your stuff its all backed up on your acct

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
