Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,
I wish to help my supervisor with a difficult problem. Basically, his iPhone 3 is unresponsive or dead and will not turn on. However, he has some very important information such as employee names and telephone numbers. He does not wish to loose this information if a backup is possible which brings me to the point of this question. Is it possible to remove the storage device within the unresponsive iPhone 3, use a special connection accessory to hook it up to a USB port of a desktop or laptop, and transfer the data over to it? I know this is an option with desktops, laptops, and external USB hard drives that do not power up just as long as the hard drive itself is good. Whatever storage media the iPhone 3 uses, it seems reasonable and logical to conclude a similar procedure can be employed here because functionally it is doing the same thing that IDE and SATA drive do with respect to purpose.
In conclusion, I know all of this is a shot in the dark. If there is a chance that his data can be saved from the dead iPhone 3, I certainly welcome any ideas and strategies which might can help in this quest.
Thanks in advance for any attention given here. I look forward to hearing back from everyone.
