Hello everyone

My girlfriend has sent her S4 up for repair because apparently it wouldn't power up anymore, (I Couldn't help and try to fix it due distance and no one really in her family knows how to fix things such as...) so after going to a store they sent it up for repair. She got the SD out of it.

I was wondering how they do it at Samsung, she had the SD card in all the time while using it daily, and had Google+ logged in.
But there are no photo's on her Google+ and she doesn't know about her SD yet.

So the big question is : Will she lose her data, and 5000(+) photo's?!

Kindest regards.
Siem

I do not mean to talk bad about her but she isn't the best with Technology, so if it isn't standard turned on then sadly I don't think so, no.

If her photos are saved on the internal storage then yes, it would probably be gone. The service center guys will always highlight to you if data will be gone

My moneys on they wipe the phone.If stuff on the phone is important she should back up her stuff to dropbox or mega.
Its the same scenario shes in as if she lost the phone.

When it doesn't boot anymore they replace the whole sdcard most of the time.

If it's an external sd card they won't touch it, if you're talking about the internal then it's most likely wiped
