Extracting data from a dead phone
Hi all, a couple weeks ago my fiance washed my pants with my phone in the pocket. We realized the error an hour before I had to leave on a business trip. So I put the phone in a zip lock bag with a gun safe dehumidifier for a few days. Unfortunately, it seems the phone is done. Doesn't do anything when I plug it in, doesn't respond when I hold the power button. Since I get no reaction at all from the phone I was hoping the problem was a dead battery, so I bought a new battery and replaced it. Unfortunately still nothing. I don't see any corrosion on contact points but I did try brushing them off with alcohol anyways. Still no luck. So at this point I figure some vital part must be completely shot.
Evidently I'm pretty stupid because I did not have the Verizon cloud taking backups. Also, I didn't have the sync turned on for my gmail account. So my question is, does anyone have any ideas how I could get my data (contacts etc) off the dead phone? I was thinking of trying to get a used one off ebay and swapping out some parts or something. I assume the data is all saved somewhere on the motherboard?
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
Your things should automatically backup to google. Tell me what you need and I will provide a link to the google websites that it is backuped to.

Contacts is the big thing, photos and app data would be nice too.
What is the google website to go to, to retrieve contacts ?

Absolutely you can't get back the data.. there is no other way..
