  1. If on, leave on. If off, leave off.
  2. Collect and preserve other surrounding and related devices. Be especially careful to collect the power charger. The phone's battery will only last a certain amount of time. When it dies, much of the data on the device may go too!
  3. Plug the phone in, preferably in the evidence room, as soon as possible.
  4. Retain search warrant (if necessary - LE).
  5. Return device to forensic lab if able.
  6. Use forensically sound tools for processing.
