    Broke the screen on my evo today, i know that the memory card will transfer some data but i want to make sure i can transfer all data. how do i do this? the usb cable that came with the phone is not working when i hook it up to the computer (it may be bad) so im going to the store tomorrow. but if the cable does not allow the transfer, what can i do???

    If the screen and the port are both broken then nothing can be done... Unless you used a backup program before upgrading to froyo.

    hmm.. i dont think the port is damaged. it allows me to charge but i have to move the cable around.... its been that way for a few weeks. i assumed the cable was bad and just had not replaced it yet. I was also thinking i would have the phone repaired, a new screen put on. is this something i can do myself?
  4. There is an app that you can download that saves all your txt (not MMS messages though) to gmail. I forget the name, but I doubt you can restore those texts to another device. At least they will be in your gmail and be search-able.
