    I fell into a pool a month ago while my phone (Samsung Galaxy s4) was in my back pocket. When I got out of the water, I immediately took the back off and the battery out. It was working for about 15 minutes once I put them back in the phone, but then the phone went black. I took the battery out again and tried to turn my phone off; the phone itself powered on (felt it vibrate, home buttons at the bottom lit up and my LED notification light lit up, and I could hear incoming notifications but the screen does nothing.

    I'm getting a replacement phone tomorrow, but I have to send my (now old) phone in. I want to know if it possible for me to transfer photos/files from my phone to my laptop via USB cord if my screen isn't working. I just don't want to send it in with pictures of my little girl on there. Thanks!

    Hello. You can always try, if you think the phone is powered on. Unfortunately it may not be possible if you had a secure lock on it, i.e. a pin password or pattern. If you had a swipe lock you should be able to recognise the device storage via windows explorer, or that apple thing! Look for the DCIM folder for camera pics.
