A recent customer called on the off chance.
Clients mobile phone had been to two other companies claiming they could recover the data from her mobile phone.
One company charged diagnostic fees and after diagnosis, referred it up to a more senior technician for an additional £200.00 on top of the £150.00 already paid.
£350.00 later, the diagnosis was "unrecoverable".
You have to ask yourself the question when choosing the right data recovery company, "how does this work".
The simple answer to this is, don't pay fees up-front! Only pay when you have proof of recovery!
Second company claimed the chip couldn't be read!
It turns out, this company just didn't have the right reader for the chip.
Reputable data recovery companies do not charge this fee as we have more confidence in the fact that we are able to recover data.
Phone data recovery (us) have invested heavily in chip readers to ensure the majority of our phones can be read in the right way.
Happy to report, the lady got back 276 photographs of her late husband and their final text messages.
Not every case has a happy ending however, with Phone data recovery's help, this one was.
