My thoughts exactly although ive had a few of those die on me as well. Just backed up my entire device using a 2 tb HD and usb OTG today actually.

Myself Like a few others who have also probably learned the hard way..always back up to a cloud of some sort as well.

I use drop box coupled with dropsync. I realize this does not help you now but will in the future.

Hope you get your pics back man.

I have woken up this morning and my phone is knackered.

Went to bed last night and left it on charge. Went to use it this morning and it is stuck in a boot up, crash, boot up cycle.

Dunno what's happened

It's not rooted. Has this happened to anyone else? Battery is at 100%

If anyone else has the same problem I phoned 3UK this morning and they are arranging to replace my phone.

It wouldn't even respond to the hard button factory restore process (all 3 versions).

Dunno what happened to it! One minute its fine, next its a brink!

Well my phone has been sent for warranty claim. I'll update with what the issue was if I ever find out.

My phone is a grey import from Hong Kong (I'm in Australia) so there is no way I can expect to have my pics on the phone if I return it under warranty.
My promotion expired too, but since Dropbox saved me twice I decided to pay for it. 10 bucks a month is OK.

As for the phone, it's seems to be damaged somehow. Could you take to an LG repair center?
