I’m trying to get my videos off my original iPhone, which is now deactivated (like I typed in wrong passwords too often). Is there a way to sync them to my computer from my old iPhone? Can I attempt a sync of the old iPhone in iTunes to get the info? What would you suggest I do? Thanks in advance for your help!

Since you can’t move data from a deactivated iPhone to anywhere else, if you didn’t make iTunes or iCloud backups. There is no way to get videos off a deactivated iPhone.
