Do you still have the USB cable for the Iphone ?

What's that?

When you purchased the Iphone did you receive any cables with which you can connect it to a computer ?

a charging lead, but I've used multiples of them

Does the other end of the charger looks like a USB which can fit into the USB port of a computer ?

Not as far as I am aware, the cable just looks like a normal Iphone charger

I've spoke to Apple and they have said that they cannot retrieve my photos as the phone has been disabled till connected to Itunes and i am not able to get into the phone because the screen doesn't work

We will need a MAC computer to proceed further. Let us know when you have time and a MAC machine to work on this.

Okay, what time are you available till today? and do you believe there is a way to get them back?

I will be online for another 2 hours. We can retrieve the data after we enable the Itunes from a MAC computer and a USB cable to connect it with the machine.

Okay i wont be home then... is this something i am able to do myself of which you could talk me through now

You have to enable your Itunes account from a MAC computer and look for a USB data cable for the iphone.

Are you certain that that could work as Apple seem to think because my photos havent been backed up to Icloud and because my screen is broke and i cannot physically use the phone that they will be lost and i will not be able to get them back
