    Recently changed over from Desire to a Desire S as screen on my Desire completely packed in. Touchscreen is working, just the screen is pretty much blank

    Can access the phone by hooking up to a laptop and "blindly" selecting disk drive access.

    But, this only lets me look at the SD memory, not the phone memory. Desperate to get back my SMS which are saved on the phone's memory.

    Questions:

    - can I access the phone memory remotely, maybe by using an app on my laptop?

    - is there another way to get my SMS onto my new handset (no backup on old phone)

    Thanks

    Unless you can blindly install sms backup apps, no.

    You should be able to use my phone explorer on pc to take screen shots to help guide you
