    I had a Razor Maxx and switched to a Galaxy3. I had my sd card encrypted on the razor and now dont know how to see those pictures on the new phone. Is there a way either by pc or anything to recover those pictures and other items??

    Can you unencrypt them using the old phone? Or do you no longer have it?

    What did you use to encrypt them? I know nothing about this, but the information may help someone else find an answer.

    BACK UP ALL DATA. then when you change phones again, you won't have lost anything.

    To decrypt the SD Card you will need to know at least the following:

    Which encryption method was used to encrypt it and the encryption key used.

    it might be possible to access the files on your new phone *IF* they were encrypted using Android's native encryption.

    I might suggest to go into a Verizon store and see if they can undecrypt it for you. Otherwise I am not really good with that kind of stuff ;)
