    Default Remove data with broken screen

    I have dropped my phone and screen is broken and black, phone is still working. I am getting repaired via insurance and they will remove data so I need to get my photos etc off my phone. It appears that as I have a lock on the screen that I can't do this via kies. Can anyone please help??? Thanks in advance.

    Do you know if you have USB Debugging enabled?

    Plug it into your PC or laptop and it should come up as a removable drive , just open it up and find the files/folders you want to keep and drag them onto the desktop...

    Rather that or if its got a memory card then just pull it out and put it back in once repaired , and some shops will backup your phone if you ask them politely....

    You could try something like this - it should allow you to to see what's on the screen and use a USB mouse/keyboard to unlock the phone.

    Alternately, someone mentioned being able to go to the Samsung website and unlock your phone remotely, but I could never get that to work - seems like you have to have a Samsung account on your phone, and who bothers with that?

    Finally, if they're sending you a replacement phone, you could swap the screen from the replacement unit onto your phone and get it working that way.
