Default galaxy s2 broken screen help!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys I am new here but hope some one can help I have a galaxy s2 and i dropped it last week smashing the screen the phone seems to work apart from the screen is dead It rings if called and makes noise of a text received but with no screen nothing works.
And stupidly did not have it insured and the screen is very expensive to replace.......
But my main problem is I can't access my photos which is the most important thing it is running ics and when i connect it to pc I can't acess any files can anybody help?
I was wondering if it is possible to connect a mhl adapter with a mains powered usb hub and otg lead with usb mouse would I be able to use my tv with a mouse to control the phone? Or does the otg lead and usb mouse only work if the device is rooted?
Can any one please help answer my questions my thanks mark.

Committing a felony is never a good solution to any problem. Plus, many don't realize that beyond the cost of the insurance, there is a replacement fee of around $150.

I would take responsibility for the break and replace the screen. The SGS2 sells the digitizer and screen as an assembly for around $200.

Amazon.com: Full LCD Screen Display + Touch Screen Digitizer Front Glass Faceplate Lens Part Panel for Samsung Galaxy S 2 II i9100 ~ Mobile Phone Repair Parts Replacement: Cell Phones & Accessories

And while it's a little involved, you can probably do it yourself.

And, think of the bragging rights! Successfully accomplish this and you'd immediately be promoted from ensign to commander at any Star Trek convention.

While we are kind of on the topic, and not to hijack the thread, but my wife just got a replacement from assurion and totally mailed her phone back rooted and running cyanogen. The phone is operational just wouldn't charge cuz that part of phone broke. My aunt has lung cancer I've been no where but work and hospital for 2 months and out of my mind so I didn't think about it at all til it was already sent off. What can I expect?

Don't worry about it. You've got a lot on your plate. I think the OP will do the right thing. Good luck and God bless.

I'm sorry to hear that. Are you sure you have the right drivers installed. Instal kies and it does it for you. I know it won't fix your screen but if i connect my gs2 to my pc i get a window pop up asking to open it as a hard drive to see, or something like that. I've never needed to turn mtp on on my phone to be able to transfer.

Seeing how galaxy s2 sreen easily breaks just in one drop i fell lucky, cuz few days back i fell over my bike, directly in position where the phone was. Thoughts when i fell was like : Oh shi... THE PHONE! Luckily nothing hapenned, no dead pixels, no cracks, everything is just like before. Well i was carrying it in pocket, in protective leather case, but if you weight over 100kg and you fall on solid concreate, the chanses things like those being still in one piece are slim.
