    I know I make me asking for the impossible here is my situation...

    I was travelling and at the airport my phone was broken. The screen was broken (glass and digitizer) along with the home button. Because I was on a plane it is stuck in airport mode so there is no way to get remote access to it. To make matters even worse I have a swipe pattern lock.

    I have plugged it into a HDMI connector and can see it all works fine. I've also plugged in a travel mouse but I cant see the screen to unlock it. I can feel the vibration as I get the combination wrong but I can't get it to unlock (tried for hours).

    Does anyone have any idea or know any secrets that I don't?

    Thanks in advance.
