Need Help! smashed mobile phone, can I retrieve data? Answered

My wife's mobile phone was run over by a car. It still works, but the screen is cracked. Verizon says they cannot retrieve the information on the phone without the screen working. Anyone know a way around this? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

. Depending on the phone, you might be able to use a USB cable and a PIM client to grab the data.

Is there perchance a way to fix the screen?

There is!

This place claims to fix broken/cracked screens.

You could just buy the same phone off ebay (dead but with an intact screen) and swap out the screens.

Why not just put the SIM card into another phone? Or a SIM card reader? Or is the data stored on the phone itself?

I am assuming it is on the phone itself since Verizon said they could not transfer without seeing the screen.
