    okay, so I cracked the screen on my Nexus 4 and the phone is useless. it still turns on and everything but I cant use the screen. can anyone help me with the memory on the phone? when I plug it into the computer, it says that there are no pictures or anything on the device. I just want all the music, pictures and contacts from the phone before sending it off to get fixed because they say they'll wipe it completely. Is there a way where I could fix the screen and whatever else is broken myself so that I still have all the pictures and whatnot on the phone?
    Thanks

    Did it fall? It may be possible that the memory chipset was damaged.

    *Storage not memory.
    Storage = ROM. long term. pictures, music, documents, etc stored on device
    memory = RAM. short term. apps run in RAM

    I agree that this may be the issue. A broker screen along shouldn't erase the contents of the SD card.

    ya it did fall, but the screen saver picture is still on there when I click the side button to turn the screen on and off again. and I still have incoming messages, and app updates and such pop up at the top, so how would I be able to find out if the memory chipset was damaged?

    You'll have to open it up and inspect for damage or replacement.
