I'm sure this is an utterly futile attempt, but I'll ask it anyway!
My phone (like so many others) made friends with a concrete floor yesterday. There's only 1 crack across the screen, but I have no graphics. My insurance company are going to sort out a repair (or replacement). When I plug the phone into my Windows 7 laptop, Windows Desktop and Dropbox both recognise that a Windows Phone has been attached, but say there's no data to transfer. The Windows Desktop App also recognises that my phone is attached, but says I need to unlock it - this is pretty hard to do with no graphics!
- Is it likely my touchscreen functionality has failed too (and hence 'guessing' where to swipe so I can unlock my phone won't work)?
- is there anyway of getting all data / settings off the phone? Luckily, my photos and contacts are saved to Gmail / Live, so I have those (which are probably the most important things) - but texts / app data etc aren't. I also have an app on there which isn't published anymore which would be nice to keep
