    Trying to retrieve pictures from old Samsung Sync (sgh-a707). No SIM card = problem

    Came across my old Samsung Sync the other day that I used in high school. I would like to gain entry into the phone so that I can view old text messages and retrieve old pictures that I thought were gone forever.

    Here's the 411:

    1. I have the phone, wall charger, and USB cord.
    2. I do NOT have a SIM card for this phone.
    3. I try to connect the phone to my computer via the USB cable, but my computer never recognizes that anything has even been plugged into a USB port.
    4. Currently, when I turn on the phone, the ONLY option is to make an emergency call.
    5. The phone has a password, but I do still remember the password.


    What do I do?!?!?!?!?!
    Is there software that I can download that will enable me to access the phone's files?
    Can I buy an old deactivated SIM card to place in the phone just so I can gain access?

    PLEASE HELP.

    UPDATE

    I found an old SIM card to put in there and I can now view all of my files and texts on the phone. Oh the nostalgia.

    New problem though...
    I can't seem to get the pictures off of the phone. I downloaded PC studio, my computer recognizes the device, however, when I try to explore the files, a 0 byte "Playlist 1" is the only thing that shows up and there is nothing there

    This thread is too old to be useful any longer. The OP resolved the issue themselves almost 4 years ago. If anyone has any additional questions about this issue, please start a new thread. Thread closed.
