Default [Q] Girlfriend's S4 sent up for repair ... will all data be deleted?

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

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
Device: Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9505)

Latest Development:
 

Roms:
AOSP v4.4.4 (KTU84P) from source for I9505 (Github)
- Cleanest ROM available for i9505. along with up-to-date stock kernel, also forms a perfect base for ROM developers.

Apps:
Galaxy S4 Glove Mode App (Playstore link)
- Do you want the Glove Mode of the S4 but your ROM doesn't support it? Use this app to enable/disable it easily.

Latest Scraps:
Proprietary Lib Cleaner / Silent proprietary libs / Live Thermal Monitor / GIT Conflict Fixer

Projects in development:
 

broodROM KitKat "Aiming for perfection"
- Custom ROM with really high standards, more info soon

For sources you can visit my Github. Or take a look at all my projects
