Unlock Samsung ٍ6 without deleting any information?

My brother died and his phone has a fingerprint unlock on it and we need information out of his phone but can't get into it without wiping any data on his Samsung S6

Because this is your deceased brother's phone and the data on there is one of your most recent personal connections to him, you should bring the phone to a cellphone repair shop. There are programs that can be used to unlock a device without losing data but if the USB debugging is not set then it gets complicated. Dr. Fone is an app that you can download on the PC and connect the phone. You could see if this works first before sending it to a repair tech. Your final alternative is to contact Samsung directly with a copy of the death certificate and request removal of the lock but this might entail a court order before it is done through Samsung.

How to get my lost data after resetting my S4 Galaxy?

Please, I did a reset to my Samsung S4 and deleted all my photos, videos, contacts ....etc.

If you have saved those photos and videos to your camera device rather than a microSD card then you have lost them as a hard reset to a Samsung S4 will wipe all data on the phone. However, if you have saved data to a microSD card, then you can access those files on your phone unless your phone was set to reformat external storage by default. This means that the hard reset would have wiped the information off of your phone in the card. However, Samsung S phones like the S4 are set to NOT erase the memory of a storage card by default so whatever is stored on there should be saved if you have not changed that setting since you bought the phone.

Samsung Galaxy S3, I typed my password but letter doesn't correspondent what I typed?

Keyboard is working but it looks like there is problem with calibration, any help how to reset or do default set up without password?

You should factory reset your phone. This would solve your keyboard issue as long as there was no damage to the touchscreen physically. If you dropped the phone recently, remove the back cover and battery. Gently press the back of the phone in a sweeping motion. This can put any loose connections back into place like your display connections.

Why is my Samsung not operable?

I bought Samsung Galaxy Note2 last year in Italy, and it was working fine but after I reset it this year in Nigeria, it does not show service when I put my Nigeria SIM card. please help me

, thanks

Because you purchased the Galaxy Note2 in Europe, it has a region lock enabled. This means that you will only be able to use a SIM card from a European country which would entail roaming charges while traveling. This YouTube Tutorial shows you how to remove the region lock in under 10 minutes. Once this is removed your Nigerian SIM should work.

After 5 attempts you can click Forgot Password and use your Google Account. Since you are connected to WiFi this should still work without the data.

I have deleted data in Samsung GT E1252?

Please provide me a solution on how can I recover my lost data

As long as you did not do this when you were factory resetting your phone, you can try an app like Undeleter from Google Play. You will only be able to recover data that was not written over.

I am trying to copy all data from my Galaxy 4 to my computer so that I can put it back on my new Galaxy 6?

I have tried using Samsung Kies with no result.

Use Samsung SmartSwitch. This will be the easiest way to transfer over your data. For images and contacts, back them up to your Google Account. They will appear on your secondary device within 24 hours of the last sync.

This YouTube Tutorial shows you how to fix your error RH-01 Failed to Retrieve from Server. Sometimes going into Settings and clearing the Cache and Data for your Google Play account and Google Framework Services solves the issue.
