Data Recovery from Phones and Tablets

Teardown of a mobile device | Data Clinic Ltd

It’s easy to damage a phone and sometimes a device may be so damaged that it no longer switches on, it may have been dropped onto a hard surface or into water, or worse. For many mobile phone repair companies recovering the data from a broken mobile phone in this condition is a step too far. Fortunately we are able to go much further than the services offered by most mobile phone repair companies and can extract your data directly from the chips that store it on your mobile phone and recover the files you are looking for.

Successfully recovering all the data from a mobile device is a specialised skill quite different to that of recovering files and folders from a home computer. Most mobile devices don’t share the same operating systems and are proprietary embedded devices which have unique layouts, memory and hardware configurations.

Data Clinic Ltd use multiple cutting edge methods for extracting data from damaged phones and tablets, including the most widely used forensically sound solutions used by law enforcement and some that they don’t, due to lack of training and/or resources, such as JTAG and Chip-off recovery procedures. These advanced methods allow us access to the data on handsets others cannot reach, including those that are inoperable due to physical damage.

Data Clinic provide comprehensive data recovery on all types of mobile device including:

  • Phones (ALL makes, including iPhone, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi Redmi, Google Pixel, LG, HTC, Nokia, Sony, Motorola, Lumia, )
  • Tablets (ALL makes, including iPad, Samsung, Kindle, HTC, Lenovo, Linx, nVidia, Acer, Sony, Asus)
  • Bricked & bootlooping devices
  • Smashed, bent, run over, fire damaged and liquid damaged phones
  • Phones that do not power up
  • Memory full phones
  • Associated external memory- SD, MicroSD, MMC etc
  • Portable GPS devices
  • Phones manufactured with Chinese chipsets

The type of data we can extract includes:

  • Photos & Videos
  • Contacts
  • SMS and MMS messages and timestamps
  • Audio recordings
  • Handset information and SIM-card data
  • Incoming/Outgoing/Missed Call Logs
  • Email
  • Calendar events schedule
  • App data – specific to phone and App
  • GPRS and Wi-Fi activity giving locations (‘cell site analysis’)

Advanced Phone Rebuilds and Reconstruction

Sometimes our data recovery process is not sufficient as it will not recover everything that is held on the phone. For example, on Samsung phones the Notes App is encrypted and can’t be retrieved by data recovery processes. Similarly, encrypted messaging and cryptocurrency apps are often outside the data recovery process too.

Similarly we work for organisations that just require a damaged phone to be returned to a working condition.

In both the above cases the way to progress to is to rebuild and reconstruct the phone using our Advanced Data Recovery process.
