Default Screen broken, Need to access contacts

My father recently dropped his phone and the screen cracked.
He has an HTC Wildfire S
Nothing has been done to it so far.
Computer does not recognize it.
Need a way to get contacts.
Touch Screen is unresponsive on the lower half of the screen.
Can't unlock it from its unlock screen.

Any way to get in phone to get contacts back will be helpful.

Phone is trashed one way or another. Replacing it as soon as possible. Just getting the contacts back would make his (and my) day.

Has contacts that he has no other way of getting in contact with other than his phone.

Recap:
Broken/Unresponsive touch screen
HTC Wildfire S
Computer doesn't recognize when connected
Carrier: T-Mobile

If his phone was synced with google, all his contacts would show in his gmail account. Otherwise, has he ever backed up his contacts on the SD card? If so, I guess you can use a card reader and extract the contacts from the SD card.

Never been synced, no sd card. Was just used for communication purposes only. Talk only. Never used for texting.

can replace screen if last resort. Was looking for a way to not have to spend any money. will wait a day or two before i order a new touch screen/digitizer for him..
