Display stopped working, but phone still functions. Just cant see anything
HTC Sensation 4G
Phone appears to work as normal. I can enter PIN, adjust volume, it can even still accept calls, and I can even see it connected to my wireless router (on router setup screen on my computer) I just can't see anything but a black screen.
I don't need to repair the phone, as I've already purchased a new one. I do, however, urgently need the text messages stored on the phone for an upcoming legal battle.
Unfortunately, I don't have any linking software on the phone, and when I plug it into the PC via USB cable, it doesn't appear on the HTC sync software. It does appear as 'E' drive on my computer hard drive list, but it is not accessible when clicking on it.
So, is there a trick, or some really cool PC software that can retrieve those text messages? Or is there a way to replace the screen cheaply? Or even a company I can send the phone to that specializes in this?
