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.

Re: Remove data with broken screen
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.
