Help broken screen!

by slric2 / January 12, 2013 10:41 PM PST

Hi brains trust! i know this is random, but I'm getting desperate here... I'm looking for an app that will allow me to operate my phone from my pc? I've well and truly ruined my screen, but phone still works. Just want to get in and get the info from the apps that don't synch and forward my calls until i can get a new one.. any ideas? MyMobiles doesnt want to work for me. maybe because i cant put my sim pin in.

thanks in advance!

I don't think it can be done, but why not tell what phone you have?

Why not have it repaired? The screen can be replaced by the repair centre.

If you need to scrape what you forgot to get off the phone, look up CELLEBRITE and for most folk they want to find a cellular service center with that or similar to clone the phone.

What phone is it? Does it use a removable storage chip? Can't you link it to your pc hardwire to USB? A bit more information might help.

If you use a non-sim memory card, you maybe able to retrieve data from it using an adapter or any similar memory carded slot. However, it all depends on how or what gets stored there, usually memory hogging storage items.

How do you know its working and even if you got some app to install on PC that it will provide what you need. Overall, you maybe chasing a greased pig. Sorry, I suggest next time use a protective cover/case to protect you phone.
