Default Samsung Galaxy S Broken Screen

My ladyfriend recently broke her screen. It's ultimatly destroyed, you cant see anything. My question is that she is wanting to get her pictures from her phone, so is there anyway to access the usb mass storage mode with out using the screen? Her phone is not rooted.

Hi there ,
I have the same problem. I dropped my phone and digitizer cracked (the front glass looks fine). Now I can hear that my Samsung Galaxy S boots and it rings when someone calls me but the screen is always blank. So I cant do anything. Please let me know if you manage to get your information off the phone and if and how you fixed the screen.

Thank you in advance

I had a broken glass and damaged digitizer last month. I also had the same problem with saving data (phone had Eclair 2.1-update1).

I spent about a week searching various forums about saving my data on the phone. I didn't find any solutions. My only resolution was to repair/replace the screen/digitizer assembly. Yes, the screen and digitizer is a 1-piece assembly. So I took my phone to a local mom&pop cellular repair shop, and got the screen replaced with a new OEM one.

Since then, I had updated my OS from 2.1 to 2.3.3 via Kies (this was the first time I have used Kies and backed up my contacts, photos, etc).

The strange thing is that on another computer that doesn't have Kies, my Windows XP Pro SP3 now recognizes my phone as an external storage device, and shows the contents (folders, files) on my phone (both internal sd and external sd cards) WITHOUT Kies. So now I can easily drag&drop my pics files from my phone to my PC (via the included USB cable that came with the phone) without installing Kies on the PC. The only time I use Kies is to back up my contact list.

Good luck.
