Assuming you have a smart phone, you should be able to move future photos to your computer- if you have one- using you charging cable (if it is a USB cable) by plugging it into the USB port. Use it as a media device, and you should be able to move them. If you don't have a computer, but do have a USB charging cable, get a USB flash Drive, go to a public library, and use both as media devices. You should be able to move the photos from your phone to the USB cable. I'm sorry that you lost your photos.

How hard would it have been to plug your phone into your computer and transfer the 1000+ photos to a hard drive? You mentioned using an 'app', so I can tell it's at least a smart-phone. Apple, Android, and Windows phones will all quite happily connect to your computer over USB, and old-school hard-drives are fairly cheap storage.

You have an iPhone.... what was the problem in putting them on external storage such as a USB drive or hard drive?? Meh online. This is why I don't trust the "cloud"

Original poster here, the phone was so full that it literally didn't have to space to back itself up, I also don't have a computer to back it up on. Thanks though, babe.

If you are going to use a app to store photos in the cloud, at least do it with a reputable company like Google photo or with Amazon. I'm pretty sure Google give you like 10gbs for free with a google account

Original poster here. It WAS google photos. I watched the app spend over 10 minutes as it "searched through my phone and downloaded all photos." I scrolled through multiple times and saw all of my photos in "my photos", I trusted it.

I'm confused. I have a Droid and the "Google Photos" app is the app I use for internal storage. So if you delete them from your phone, yeah, the app isn't going to have anything in it, because it's offline storage. Just upload them to your Google Drive, much more secure and it has a shit ton of storage space. I have a YouTube channel and I use my drive to store my videos (most 30-60 minutes long, 1080p, 16:9) and it's barely put a dent in my storage.

Now you know why they are called smart phones because the users are not.

Must be an iPhone. Once you delete it on either computer or phone, it's gone from both once you sync it. Yeah, I don't understand either. Happened to me once when I had the iPhone 3g. Promptly sold that crap and got an Android. Never looked back.
