need photos off disabled iPhone

Hi -- In a nutshell, someone set a passcode on my phone and now it is disabled and says connect to iTunes. When i connect to iTunes, it says to repsond to your phone so the computer can gain access. I can't respond because its disabled (circlejerk.) I do not use the cloud to backup my photos. I have been told my last resort to try to save some of the photos currently on the device is to find a third party software to get the photos off of it. I dont care about anything else as long as I can get the photos off of it and stored somewhere else. Do you know of any third party options? Please help me.

Personally, I'm hoping that there aren't options, because if you can get through security, anybody can.

I think your best bet is to un-disable it (somehow). When my iPad is disabled, it is only so for a limited time - is your forever? What happens if it loses all power, and then you start charging it up - will it still be disabled?

If there are no icloud or itunes backups of your phone, then there is no way to recover your photos. Especially with iOS 8.

Phillip -- I tried the iphone recovery and it wont work.

Any other third party ideas? Apple themselves said they were out there and could get the photos.

There is no third party idea, sorry.  If you are running IOS8, your only option is to persuade the someone who set your passcode to tell you what it is.  That is the whole point of the iPhone disabling itself.

You mention that you don't back up to iCloud.  OK, but do you back up to a PC (iTunes)?  If so, you can get your photos out of the backup, or restore the phone from the backup.  If not, sorry, you're out of luck.
