My phone died. My other phone wasn't with me. Nothing revived the phone.
After a couple of hours, trying every trick I knew, I googled, found a solution on the web - and it worked.
Having a backup phone is great! But only if you have it :-)
I always carry two mobile phones.
An iPhone and Android.
An iPhone X and Samsung S8.
I do it to know what is considered by over 90% of world population to be the best mobile OS.
I always carry two phones - but this time I didn't.
As we left our home, I realized that with all the excitement I left my Samsung at home.
I told myself it doesn't matter. And then it did.
My phone went dead.
Nothing I tried could revive it.
It wouldn't boot, and wouldn't reset, and none of the tricks I had learned over the years to revive iPhones helped.
Wow. I felt lost.
Cause I always carry two phone. And this time I didn't.
Finally, after a couple of hours, google proposed a solution.
I tried it - and it worked.
My phone worked again.
So, if you have a spare phone, be sure to have your spare phone with you...
And if not, be sure to google frequently.
