    Welcome to Android Central! You really need a computer, in which case you could try this method: A quick guide to accessing a locked phone with a cracked screen. But even then, you can't access text messages as a file. You'd have to first unlock the screen using the above method, then try to mirror the screen to a TV by connecting with an MHL cable (if your phone is compatible). You'd also have to connect a USB mouse via an OTG cable in order to navigate around the phone, so this would require some kind of splitter for the phone's microUSB port (to accommodate both the OTG cable and the MHL cable). I'm not sure if the phone be able to handle both connected at the same time.
