    Here's the deal: My S3 has had a broken screen for a while now, but only since yesterday has the screen itself stopped working: Screen is completely dark, accepts no inputs through screen. It does turn on and off though, and the LED and hardware buttons still work as normal. I need to find a way to take all the contacts off of the phone so I can put them on a new phone i'm getting in a few days. Any ideas?

    The phone does not have USB debugging enabled.
    Developer mode is not enabled.
    Device is not connected via 'Find My Mobile'
    For some reason, even though I synced it many times, Google Contacts does not have them saved.
    The device is locked with a pattern, so I do not know how to use the SDK.
    I have the garbage version with no (easily accessible) SIM card, and for some reason does not have an SD card in it.
    There are no other phones in my house.
    I have tried using Kies and Smart Switch, and both require me to unlock the phone, which I am unable to.

    Sadly but if they are not backed up to a cloud service or your Google account, your contacts are lost... unless you replace the digitizer.
