How to Retrieve Deleted Pictures from a Cell Phone


Deleted photos from a cell phone can be a real hassle, since they are generally taken on the spur of the moment and cannot be replaced. However, deleted pictures from a cell phone may be retrievable, but some cell phone manufacturers have blocked the software that allows the retrieval because they offer similar software for a fee. It is worth a try to download retrieval software to see if your phone is compatible with it. But be advised: if it is not, your pictures are gone forever.

Things You'll Need

  • USB cable
  • Computer
  • Go to and download PhotoRescue Pro. (There is a free trial version; the January 2010 purchase price is $29.95.) This is just one of several photo recovery programs available on the Internet.

  • Connect your cell phone, via the USB cable, to your computer.

  • Double-click on the PhotoRescue Pro icon to run the program.

  • Choose the type of files you want to recover from your cell phone. To begin the scan, click “Next.”

  • If any pictures were recovered, a dialogue box will appear to notify you that the recovery is completed. Indicate where you would like the files saved.
