Can I get contacts off of my phone with a broken screen/digitizer through PC connection?


AC Question

USB debugging mode is not enabled. If I can get my phone connected to a computer, and am able to browse through the files and folders, can I find contact info, even just names and numbers to write down so I can transfer manually to my new phone?

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Are the contacts saved to your Google account, or only to the local Phone account? If the latter, then it may be difficult, because contacts are locally stored in a database file in a protected system directory that you can't access unless the phone is rooted.
