Recently, in the span of about a week, a friend of mine lost her hard drive and backup drive storing years of work, her entire music collection, her photos and all her e-mail. A few weeks later, duly warned, I watched my glitchy phone finally die — and take with it almost every photo I had ever taken of my daughter since the day she was born. I hadn’t backed up my phone because I couldn’t connect my new laptop to my old external hard drive and had been planning to switch from MobileMe (to which I’d forgotten the password) to iCloud (I was holding off until I could back everything up on a hard drive, not yet purchased). My digital-storage problems had become so internecine that I didn’t stop to consider my photos’ vulnerability until it was too late. Weeks later, I’m still plagued with the back-of-the-mind feeling that one of these days I’ll figure out how to make the pictures reappear as magically as they vanished. My mind isn’t sure how to process the loss because it feels at once real and illusory.

Well, you could call Leo.

But he will just chastise you for not using carbonite backup...

Does you phone save to a mini-sd card?

You may be able to physically get the data out!

Otherwise, see if you can get your hands on a working battery that fits your phone? I've had a few Nokia's that would get glitchy when the battery is on its way out. Put a new battery in and suddenly they work like new again.
