    My screen crashed randomly, so I have a black screen.

    If I touch the lock button on the side or the middle button my touch buttons light up.

    I need to send my phone back to samsung for repair but I need to get all my data/photos off the device. I have installed Kies (for Mac compatibility), but it says connected device is locked so I cant access it.

    I have tried to use Samsung's locate my device to unlock the screen, however it can't locate my device, or unlock it. I don't think I enabled the setting on my device when it was still working.

    Is there a way that I can enter my lock screen code on the computer (mac) that I have connected my device to via usb?

    Or is there a way I can bypass this lock code?

    My phone provider Optus is pretty useless when I went in store I was told to just download Kies as they dont have facilities to transfer data between devices.

    Sorry, no.

    Not without a working screen.

    Even if they did, the phone has to be unlocked.

    There's this thing called "backing up your important files". That way yo don't lose them.
