    My old Samsung Galaxy S3 wont charge whatsoever, I can't turn on the phone and connecting it to any sort of power source wont do anything.
    I don't care if I have to throw away the phone but I'd like to retrieve the photos saved on the device.
    All the Data I'd like to recover is on the internal Memory so tkaing out the SD card wont to the trick.

    Thanks in advance

    What's the condition of the phone? Is it, or can it be, turned on? If the phone can't even power up, there's no way to get the data off of it... unless you take it to a repair shop or something so they can power up the phone. I'm guessing you tried a new/different battery?

    I can turn on the phone for a mere 2 or 3 second - not even long enough to put in the passcode.
    And yes, I tried a different Battery: Same result.
    But I will take it to a repair shop this afternoon, thanks for your help.

    Edit: So I took the phone to a shop but they said the only thing they can do is repair it or get the data off the phone for about 200 bucks.

    Did they tell you what they thought was wrong with the phone?

    Have you attempted to start the phone in Safe Mode to see if it's an app causing the issue? Sounds like it's probably not an app, but worth a try.
