TLDR, how do I get photos off a phone with a dead screen? Laura's phone hadn't been backing up its photos as she'd used up all her cloud storage, about six months after this our toddler got hold of the handset and something happened to the screen, it's 100% dead, zero input or output. We paid to upgrade her storage hoping the phone would then back up the six month backlog of photos, but it's not done so. The handset powers up and does the little vibrate chirp as you select it on the switch so it appears to be alive in some way. Plugging it into a laptop doesn't seem to do anything, presumably the phone needs to authorise the connection? The quote we had for a new screen was more than the phone was worth, but less than the value of the photos. Is there another way?
