    My phone was recently smashed, and I need to recover any data possible. I have fully charged the phone, but i can't even tell if it's on or not. When I use the USB connection my laptop doesn't recognize it. I have tried my replacement phone and the USB cable and port is good on the replacement phone. I have little time left to get this old phone to the insurance company, so I need to figure something out quick. Please help??

    Welcome to Android Central! Try this method: A quick guide to accessing a locked phone with a cracked screen. But this will only allow you to access files saved on the device--not contacts or text messages, or other data that isn't contained in a discrete file that can be manipulated by the user.
