    I recently ruined my lumia 1020 on a trip to the Philippines. Salt water got into it and it shorted out. Is there anyway to recover the pics/video that are saved? I already tried usb connection. Can I just swap the on board memory (not sure where it is) to another 1020(I have 2 more). Any thoughts?

    I imagine trying to switch out chips on the board to be a very risky and difficult procedure for even qualified professionals.

    Especially since salt is very destructive.

    Honestly, the best way, and perhaps the only remotely easy way to deal with this is to make sure you don't have to be in this situation ever again. Backups!

    if your phone was ever connected to Wi-Fu, surely they were backed up to OneDrive? (or whatever cloud service you used)

    Unless you turned them off...
