    Hi - after some help please - I have the samsung galaxy s and have just broken the screen..... like a dingbat I saved some pictures on the phone which I'd like to get before I send it off for repairs..... Is there anyway of getting the data from there onto a pc without being able to use the touch screen??

    if you can see the screen and not use it , then go into recovery mode [power btn + vol up + home]
    and use vol up / vol down to navigate and pow to chose

    I think you can mount the phone from there
    or maybe you'd have to look into using adb

    Wouldn't just connecting to PC and using Kies do this?

    No need to use the phone screen.
