Is it possible to recover deleted photos from android without no backups?

Great many of android users don’t know it is possible to directly recover photos from android phones/tablets without backups.

When you delete photos(or other files) on your Android device, it isn't really erased- it continues existing. That's why you can retrieve deleted photos from android without needing of backup. Deleting a file's pointer and marking its space as available is an extremely fast operation. In contrast, actually erasing a file by overwriting its data takes significantly longer. For example, if you're deleting a 1 GB file, that would be near-instantaneous. To actually erase the file's contents, it may take several minutes – just as long as if you were writing 1 gigabytes of data to your Android device. In that case, o...

Phone or network problem?

Just bought a SECOND Samsung J7 that has the same problem as the first: complaints from others that I fade in and out, sound distant. I hear others fine. Previously had a Galaxy Prevail--no problems. All phones used on Boost. Any thoughts appreciated.

Samsung HW-J7500 Network Disconnecting and Reconnecting

My Samsung HW-J7500 soundbar suddenly started disconnecting and reconnecting to the Internet recently. It does it for both Wifi setup and Ethernet wired setup. It's annoying to hear the disconnect and connect sound notification over and over again while watching something. Does it have anything with recent update? Any solution to this? Used to work perfectly fine, never had the issue before.

D/l and install drivers

Evening:

I'm having major problems installing phone drivers to a Win7 machine. This has been going on for quite some time now. I cannot figure out why the drivers won't install. So, can anyone tell me what is going on? I've tried to get the comp to find/load the drivers and all it does is "search" forever. Tried to manually install drivers,but for whatever reasons, it didn't take. I know it can't be this difficult, but yet, it is??? Anyone have some thoughts on how to get these drivers installed? BTW, where does everyone get the drivers they need? Samsung.com does not list my model. But, I've gotten them at another site(supposedly). phone specs: Anycall GalaxyS1 model shw-m110s~~ Android 2.2. I need these drivers installed so I can up...

bad request

Hey:

About 2 weeks ago, out of the blue, I started getting a "bad request" whenever I tried to access/login to my hotmail account. My phone has a Google browser. I've went through many searched sites and have gotten no help. I've tried clearing the cache, cookies, history and a data reset. I've tried the "Dolphin" browser and still get "bad request". somehow, this makes me think it's a problem within the phone(?) Anyone have any ideas on what the problem & cure could be? phone specs> Samsung Anycall GalaxyS...model shw-m110s...Froyo 2,2 O.S.
Thanx:

Owners Manual

Evening:

I've had a problem for some time now and I'm hoping someone here will be able to provide information. I have a KOREAN Samsung GalaxyS model HSW-M110S that I've been trying to get an owners manual for. I've been all over the "net", to Samsung America and Samsung/Galaxy forum and I'm still searching. This is NOT the same as the American G1900!! If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated.

New Samsung Phones Coming Out In 2015

Samsung is one of the most productive community in telecommunications area especially smartphones, its new Samsung phones coming out in 2015 are sundry version either from Galaxy series or A series, Note series … Very often when people have knowledge about other new Samsung phones rather than Galaxy either Note or Galaxy but most of them do not know nothing about Samsung Galaxy A7 or Galaxy E7. If fact, a lot of people will tell me in comments or Facebook page that they are inglorious new Samsung phones coming out, Samsung only focuses on its outstanding smartphones such as the amazing Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 4.

Possibly, Samsung wants to do its marketing only to the best of new upcoming Samsung phones in 2015 because of the quantity a...

Upgrade from Samsung Z432

I want to upgrade my Samsung Z432/AT&T phone to a newer one.
I don't require e-mail, web service.etc. Just a simple phone.
I don't like my Z432 because of the exposed keys which I am constantly pressing in my pocket. Can the keyboard be locked? and how?
I need a phone that the cards in my present phone will fit and work in.
Please advise.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha 850

Can anyone tell me the differences between the Samsung Alpha 850A, the Alpha 850F, and the Alpha 850M, etc...?

If you are searching for an unlocked phone what are the advantages / disadvantages to these various models?

I am considering this phone because of its power and size (it is small). What is the user experience with this phone?

first note 4 battery

So the new Note 4 extended battery out of mpj now 2 months old and I am very happy with it.
The phone charges under normal use once every 3 days and the display can last over 8 hrs run in continuous operation depending on brightness. The only disadvantage is that the battery is slightly larger and the phone thus slightly thicker and heavier, but it does not bother me because I prefer long battery life.

Galaxy S6 has sported bigger screen and faster processor

Since my new phone Galaxy S6 has sported bigger and brighter screen and faster processor, I just preordered an extended battery case off mpj for it. I think the only problem is that I can not cradle a my phone in one hand while using the battery pack.

Samsung Brightside

Hi -

I'm just moving into the world of a cell that isn't a flip phone; I'm inheriting my 15 year old grandson's Brightside.

The main reason I want it is to go on the web - I watch some shows that live tweet and I want to be able to do that without running into another room to the computer.

Can I get to Twitter on this phone? I get the feeling that SOME internet is unavailable but that could just be that I don't understand what I'm looking at. (Not unusual with anything electronic!)

Would appreciate any help. I'm noticing that this phone has NEVER been very expensive which is probably why the grandson had it in the first place.

OH = what's the difference between this phone and a smart phone?

Thanks much!
