How One Genius Device Saved A Family Vacation From Disaster

Sponsored by ThePhotoStick® Mobile

1 in 3 smartphone users (33%!) will lose their photos and videos to water damage alone…Here’s my story.

All I heard was sizzling…

…and all I saw was smoke.

And by the time I realized what happened…

…my phone was toast.

Literally…FRIED.

My old worn out charging cord destroyed my phone…

…And everything on it was gone.

Contacts, emails, texts, photos, videosEVERYTHING!

GONE..in the blink of an eye…

Thankfully it didn’t catch fire…but the damage to my phone was done.

Fortunately we had replacement insurance to cover it…

…But we were on vacation…in Mexico!

Without a phone store in sight, I knew I’d be without it until we got home…

And that meant no Instagram or Facebook…or anything!

Looking at the bright side I thought ‘ A few days without a phone may actually be kind of nice’

But then…

…my stomach dropped and panic set in.

‘What about all the photos and videos of our vacation!!!’

You see…

We’d been in Mexico for almost three weeks with less-than-stellar internet service…

…which meant I wasn’t able to update or back up my phone since we arrived.

So all of the memories from our first family vacation out of the country…

…and thousands of other photos that hadn’t been backed up were gone…

FOREVER!

Or so I thought…

And then, a wave of relief flooded over my body!

Because the night before my phone took its final siesta…

I remembered that I had already backed up all our photos and videos!

Just not to ‘the cloud’

Here’s how I did it…

So, my husband, Dave, knows I take A LOT of photos and videos…

…especially when we’re on vacation!

The kids are growing so fast and I want to capture all of our family’s fun times…

Dave thought it would be a good idea to have a backup plan to save all the photos and videos while we were there…

…just in case we didn’t have internet service,

or something went wrong with our phones while in Mexico.

After all, It was our first trip out of the country with the kids.

He looked everywhere…

…Electronics stores, camera stores, and hundreds of websites.

But everything he found needed an internet connection to work…

Then a few days before our vacation he came home from work with a big smile on his face…

…He was holding something that looked like a USB stick and said ‘I think this is exactly what we need’.

But here’s the thing…

…it didn’t look like any USB stick I’d ever seen before.

Because not only did it have a regular USB plug on one end, but it also had a really small plug on the other…

I was a bit confused until he explained how it works…

He said ‘You see this end with the small plug? This plugs into your phone where the charger goes, and when you plug it in, the free file backup app prompts you to back up all your videos and photos. One click. That’s it. And what’s really cool is that it holds up to 60,000 photos and videos offline for safekeeping…

‘the only thing you need to do is install the free file backup app first for it to work.’

‘When you’re ready, you simply plug it into a USB port on your computer and upload your photos and videos like you normally would…’

I was skeptical that it could be that easy, especially since I’m not very tech savvy…

..So I tried it and you know what?

IT WORKED! And It really was that easy!

Just launch the app, plug it in, and click go.

Thousands of photos and videos saved in one click!

And the best part?

It works on Apple and Android devices (even iPads!), all Mac and Windows PC’s, there are a variety if sizes available, and it doesn’t need an internet connection to work!

What is it?

Then The Photostick Mobile is exactly what you’re looking for…

And it gets even better!

Oftentimes your phone will start running slow and it can become frustrating to use…

…Apps and websites freeze or you get ‘storage full’ messages when you’re trying to take pictures.

This is often due to storage space being taken up by photos and videos…

…There’s just not enough space available for the data the apps on your phone need to run properly.

But this incredible little device fixes that!

Not only does The Photostick Mobile allow you to quickly back up and save up to 60,000 photos and videos, but it’s also an easy way to free up space on your phone and make an old phone run like new again!

Take it from me…

Losing your phone on vacation is annoying for sure…

…but it would’ve been a real disaster to lose all of the precious memories from our trip too.

Especially since this was the first family trip where the kids didn’t argue!

I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to learn how to use it in time for our vacation…

But once I saw how easy it was I was happy he bought it.

In fact, it’s so easy to use and he got such a great deal, my husband even bought one for my daughter, my Mom, and my sister!
