    I have a Galaxy S2 that has a completely cracked and broken screen that is completely dark and unresponsive to touch, however, everything else is still functional...it still will ring when you call it, it still will make the notification when it receives a text, it still can be powered on and off through the power button, and the volume keys still adjust the volume. BUT i cannot get any files pulled from the internal memory and have no way of using the keypad to enter any codes, cannot bypass the screen lock to allow communication from the USB port or any other way of accessing the phones data wirelessly.

    IS THERE A WAY TO RETRIEVE THE INFORMATION? I.E. ADB, android toolkit, Kies, or other software?

    ADB requires USB debugging to be enabled. If you already have that then you're in with a chance, but otherwise you won't be able to enable it without the screen.

    Never used any of those others.
