    I just found a old phone of mine, it's brand is HTC, I think it used to be on cricket until I cancelled that cause it says cricket on the back of it. I don't know the model, the screen just goes on and off for a second, and is there any way to recover it? I have photos I really want to recover on it. It doesn't say the model, I'd have to check the phone to give more info but I can't check the phone. Can anyone help?

    Leave it plugged into a computer for several hours and see if it that revives it.

    Also, does he back cover come off? See if you can pop it off.

    I can pop the back cover off. And, my computer currently needs a new hard drive.

    Some HTC's when they drained out needed to be trickled charged and a computer works well for that.

    There should be a model number under the cover of some phones, or under the battery.

    Removing and re-seating the battery may be worth trying as well.
