My phone has been unresponsive for the past 24+ hours. I never backed it up. Everything that matters to me (digitally) is pretty much on this device (photos, videos). The irrecoverable. It’s been a painful 24 hours thinking that we may lose some photos that are so important. And we can’t get them back. Called an Apple genius (literally, a genius). Was told to take it into the store. Called Verizon. Nothing. Called the Apple Store? They hung up on me (furreal). So I spent the past hour digging in on articles about the subject. Nothing. Then … I got desperate. Priya KC Bhatt as my witness. And I delved into the land of misfit toys otherwise known as “the comments section”. And I found this miracle. Written by this user. That worked. I bent my iPhone slightly. Just lightly twisted and turned it. And it works. I’m backing up everything. I bought a TB of iCloud storage. And I’m going to get my new phone ASAP. But for this guy. In this comments section. On this random blog I scoured. #Iamgrateful and #Iamthankful <and the hashtag is back, everyone who hates on can unfriend me. But this is a miracle and holy hell do I feel grateful and thankful right now.
