Default [Q]How to retrieve SMS and MMS from completely dead x10 mini pro?

I'm new so I want to say hello to everyone
I've got a problem with my xperia x10 mini pro.It's dead and I can't even turn it on.
Unfortunately I need some of the SMS and MMS from this phone.
So, I have a question.Is there any way to retrieve this files without turning on the phone?
I dig through files on my memory card but I didn.t find any SMS/MMS files.

Thanks in advance.

That's a nontrivial task as IF your phone is completely dead (faulty hardware) then you need to dump the complete image of your eMMC and then retrieve the messages from that image. I believe dumping eMMC can be done via JTAG but that requires special paid hardware and software. Or you could theoretically remove the eMMC off the board and read it with an IC programmer but that is even more labor intensive task than the JTAG method.
