    I dropped my iphone today and the glass front shattered. Now the phone won't turn on. Unfortunately, I hadn't backed it up and I am hoping to recover photos/videos, contacts and text messages. I've tried to do a soft and hard reset, but the phone will not turn on. It has a charge. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can retrieve my data? Thanks!

    Unfortunately without being on, it won't be able to transfer any of the files. So your looking for a way to turn it on. I'm assuming you've already plugged it into your computer and that didn't work. It's a good time to break your phone though. :D

    Yes, I did plug it in to the computer, but since it won't turn on my itunes can't read anything. Mostly I want to get some photos off it and desperately am trying to find a way to get it turn back on.

    Depending on where you live there might be a place around you called " DATA DOCTORS "

    They ( Might ) might , be able to help.
