I bought Ethereum on Trust wallet a few years back. Then I got a new phone and dumped the phone with the trust wallet app in my shelve.
After some months, I wanted to give the phone out to someone. I picked up the phone and tried to enter my password. I had totally forgotten the password.
I took the phone to a technician and the only solution he could recommend was to flash the phone. I don’t know what flashing a phone is called in your country but where I come from, it means the phone will be restored to factory settings even while the phone is locked.
The phone technician flashed the phone and all my apps, files, etc were automatically deleted. I did not have a backup in my new phone.
Also, I could not recover my fund in Trust wallet because I did not have a backup of my Trust wallet recovery phrase.
