I've had a Samsung Galaxy S2 for less than a year; in fact, I have 84 days left on my warranty.
I like its functionality, but I'm horrified it just randomly died after I added a bunch of contacts and texts messages related to a death in our family.
So that's what brought me to this forum. I need help figuring out why it won't turn on when there was no water damage, no impact, and no warning that I was going to lose the most important information of my just hours before I was going to backup my contacts, texts, etc.
Bad karma? No. I don't even kill spiders in my house. I just relocate them outside. Ghosts? I hope my cousin wouldn't haunt me like that at his wake...
So I'm here because I have yet to find any help anywhere else on the known internet, and I know there are some really helpful, super intelligent people who can give me some direction on recovering this mission critical data.
I believe the phone can be repaired (without data loss) in the proper hands. Really, the data is on the chip-- move the chip to a working mainboard (my suspicion) to bring the device back. (Has anyone ever tried this??? I know the manufacturer refurbs phones, so why not some electrical engineer who can solder?)
Anyway, I intend to scour the known internet until I can find someone capable of helping me recover the data I need. And I'm starting with forums because those who participate are the most helpful people I've ever had the pleasure of encountering.
