She has a from the insurance replacement & she has to send the old phone off tomorrow or Thursday

It's a Galaxy J5 (if that matters)

Don't know anything about Galaxy but if it backs up to a cloud you'll be fine. Ds did similar with iPhone recently- we restored the backup and he'd lost nothing. Good luck!!

My samsung automatically backs up photos to google photos thats linked to your gmail email address, search google photos then try log in?

Plug it into a pc or laptop, should be able to transfer stuff that way.
Also remove the memory (sd) card if it has one as photos usually get stored on there.

I think I may try a shop; no sd card & nothing when it is plugged in

She did a great job on it really sad
