It’s a question we get asked a lot – Is it possible to recover data from a phone after a factory reset? Unfortunately, the answer on most modern phones is No, it is not possible. With older phones there is still a chance, but most people have phones that are less than two years old, and that makes the chances very slim.
Golden Rule: So if your phone is behaving oddly and the manufacturers recommend that you factory reset the phone, don’t do it if you want the recover the data that is already on the phone. Instead contact us first and we’ll quote you a cost for recovering the data from your phone.
If you’d like to call into a Data Clinic office please click here for a list of Data Clinic locations, alternatively call us and we’ll collect the phone from you free of charge.
