Default Galaxy S2 - Broken screen, need to access files/bypass screen lock

Hi everyone,

I managed to drop and break the screen of the Galaxy S2 last week, but want to retrieve the files off it (mainly pictures) before I send it off to be repaired, as I'm thinking that they'll either send me a completely new phone or wipe the memory of mine. The actual phone still works, just the screen is blank. I've connected it through Kies but I can't access the files as it says the screen lock is on. Does anyone know how to either bypass the screen lock in this situation or an alternatively way to access the phone's folders. Everything is saved on the phone and not a SD card.
