Can I clear data on my phone if it doesn't turn on? What options do I have if I can't do this?
I know I probably can't clear data off my phone if it doesn't turn on. What options do I have? The problem is my phone got wet and I already had it dry, Then I paid $25 to have it taken apart and professionally cleaned.
However, none of those options worked. I want to sell my phone as not working on eBay, But I have important data such as phone numbers, addresses, and my credit card info / login on Google play.
do you have a secure screen lock? that would also have been saved.. for the google play, you should be able to deactivate the device from your account online, that would force anyone who accessed the storage to need to re-log in.. any other (non-google) apps with sensitive info?
if you had it disassembled, you may be able to locate the internal storage and simply remove it (or perhaps permanently disable it with a razor blade or similar), depends on the phone
Sally, I did not have a secure screen lock. If I removed the device from the Google play store and later add another phone that is the exact same model should it be a problem? The phone is actually for my mom and she likes old physical keyboard phones. It's an old droid 3 replaced by working one.
+1 or find a train track and video its destruction.
probably someone will think you put a phone bomb on the tracks
You'll get crazy newbies who call 3x a day for 2 weeks straight, and post argumentative paranoia demanding the rebate is guaranteed, in writing, by certified mail, on their doorsteps, by tomorrow evening. Then all the other newbie sheep freak out, and THEY call 3x a day, for 2 weeks straight, and the paranoia explodes. And suddenly everyone's carting their paper back to the retailer demanding a refund.
All those who CALLED to confirm.... Your dad should have silently slept that night.
well if the phone does not turn on unless the person is going to remove the memory from your phone by unsoldering soldering , you really don't need to worry about it.. The person who buys your phone is going to want the keyboard or screen.
But for peace of mind how much will you make selling the phone?
