Customer Question
It's actually my phone...

It's actually my phone. When I transferred my information over to this phone a lot of my pictures were just little black squares. Is there anyway to retrieve my pictures. a lot of them can never be taken again. Some have died

Technician's Assistant: When did you last charge your phone?

It actually has been a couple of months back. I actually thought it was a lost cause until someone told me it wasn't. Can you please help me?

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a force reboot (pressing and holding the Power button)?

I actually don't know what you mean I'm talking about phones I don't know how to do that???

Technician's Assistant: The Smartphone Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?

No I don't think you can go ahead and connect me

What happened was couple of months ago I got a new phone because my phone was stolen. had all my pictures and everything saved through Google but when I transfer my photos and everything over a big fat section I think for November of last year were missing and they were a lot of pictures that I hold dear to my heart these pictures cannot be done over because a lot of my family has passed so I'm asking if it anyway you can help me retrieve them right now all black boxes
