Default Cracked my screen.. how to get stuff off?

I dropped my EVO and the screen completely shattered. It's black but the touch input still works, just can't see anything. It's not rooted. Besides taking the SD card and putting it in the new EVO, is there something else I should do? I was using aCar for my vehicles fill up.. I hope it's stored on the SD.

When I plug her into my computer, it won't act as a USB drive unless I tell it to. Is there a way to force it from the computer?

BTW, I had the insurance and am very glad I did. Saved me.

Unfortunately, without being able to access the screen, there's no way to back anything up or force it to connect from the computer. If you use Google for your contacts and/or calendar, those will automatically be backed up and redownloaded to the new phone as long as you use the same account.

Give it a shot...supposing that the screen still responds to input...
Get your credit card and align it flush with the bottom of the EVO SCREEN...the fourth # should de dead on in DISK DRIVE...press and see what happens...just a thought...

I decided to reply here instead of starting a new topic. My phone got wet and the screen is black but the touch input works. Not rooted, not backed up with my google account as far as I know because that's how I used it. I know all my texts will be lost but I am worried about my contacts and pictures. I downloaded the sync program but the phone isn't even recognized. My pc does recognize it as a mass storage device but not sync. The replacement phone has been delayed until who knows when thanks to the hurricane and I'm going nuts!! Still, I'd like to save as much information as I can. My husband has an Evo too that I can use as reference when using the black screen. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

Your pictures are saved on the SD card. As far as your contacts, your best bet may be to take it to Sprint or Best Buy and see if they can transfer everything over.

At this point, I doubt it.

RS and BB will have a problem, to use their contact transfer devices, they have to put the phone into "USB Debugging" and that'll be hard to do without being able to see what you're doing.
