Phone not accessible ( broken screen plus pattern protection)
I have already read through a lot of threads, but nothing works. It's a simple problem. The screen is dead. Phone still does turn on. USB debugging not enabled and, of course, I can't unlock the pattern, since the screen is dead.
When I connect it to my computer, the folders are empty. Although, for some reason, the pictures I can still see and retrieve. I just need access to the Whatsapp folder and that's currently impossible.
The only solution seems to be to dismount the motherboard of the S3 and install it on another S3. But I don't have another S3 and the phone I bought after the S3 broke was the S4.

Welcome to the forums!
If you have no intention of getting access to another S3 screen so that you can unlock the device the only suggestion I could make would be something like http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009QW3TBK/...0-20&m1k=vb_ac - this will allow you to connect via HDMI to a monitor/TV so that you can see the screen. If necessary you could use a USB mouse/keyboard for navigation/input. And on the plus side it should work with your new S4.
