    Hello Androids

    I know this problem has been up probably a lot of times, and I have read what I can find about it, but I dont see any solution..
    So the screen on my S2 is broken, the phone is not in "USB debugging mode" or whatever it is called and thats it

    I put the charger in and I can hear the startup sound, and there is light in the two lower touch-buttons, but thats as far as I get. When connecting via usb to computer, the computer only recognizes the phone as a modem in "printers and units" or what its called.. it doesent show as a hd or at all under "my computer"

    Is it really NO WAY to get my photos of the phone? I cant believe it..
    the hd is there and there must be some way to connect to it????

    Thanks for any tips

    Have you looked and or asked in the S2 forums? We have several of them, all carrier specific.

    If you had 'AirDroid' installed on your phone you'd see your phone on the PC's browser and act on the phone like with a remote and move your pictures to the PC.
    To install AirDroid on your phone you'd log on with your Google account in Play Store on the PC and let download and install the app on your phone.

    The problem is how to launch the AirDroid app on your phone.
    The post in this thread might help you ...

    Good luck!
