    So my boyfriend was found dead in his car and his phone wasn't with him. So we are assuming it was stolen. Is there anyway to get the pictures off the device? He wasn't linked up with lookout or anything like that. I went through the google+ account and it wasn't backed up on there either. Would I be able to call Android or anything like that to get the photos? They were the last ones of us and the kids thanks in advance.

    Very sorry for your loss. Try Google Drive. For any of these options you'll need his Gmail account and password.

    Idk about other ways to get the photos, but have you tried locating the phone with: https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager

    You may be able to get a location....it would also allow you to remotely lock it if someone was using it.

    Maybe photos are backed up somewhere like Dropbox.

    Besides going through the device manager try working with his carrier and authorities to see what can be done/recovered. Good luck.

    It may have been passed to an innocent third party without being wiped, or is lying around waiting to be found.

    So with Android Device Manager you can also leave a message on the screen and a contact number dial button to call you or a family friend if found. This is when you select the Lock option in Android Device Manager.
    On Edit : even with a drained battery and Location turned off, it will activate on the phone when back on.

    As Javier said, hopefully you have access to his Gmail/Google account.

    If this does encourage someone with a little humanity to return the phone and photos, you may get a call directly from that number with a special dial button even though the device is locked.

    Again, so sorry for what happened.
