    Hi,
    hit my left leg on a barrier as I was cycling home yesterday - right where my Orange San Francisco was. Result - cracked screen, now showing green and purple lines.

    I have the Wallet app containing various passwords that I can't access (didn't get round to syncing with dropbox) :(

    Phone still powers on, but I can't see what I'm doing or even if touching the screen is creating a response.

    AFAIK I can use Lookout to restore to a new handset (which is on the way), assume if I upgrade to pro this will include text messages. Would Lookout restore my Wallet app settings?

    Contacts are synced with Google, apps with App Brain, so these are retrievable... but any ideas with the Wallet app?

    Thanks

    If the app is on your sd card, or the passwords are saved there from the app itself, hook your phone up to your pc/laptop and access them that way.

    The data could be on the card, true. But i'm guessing if it's a password protector app, then the data is most likely encrypted. It wouldnt make much sense to have a password protector app and not encrypt the data.

    Certainly encrypted yes, it doesn't look as though Lookout does anything other than backup contacts, photos and calls, so it isn't looking promising.

    All I need is for a way to connect the phone up so that I can see the user interface on an alternative screen?

    Unless you installed an app previously so share the screen then you really have no options that I know of.
