I have a Samsung Captivate with a broken screen. I Do Not have auto mount installed, therefore it is impossible to mount the drive because i can not navigate. Has anyone had any luck with any programs forcing the phone to auto mount the drive; or has anyone had luck retrieving contacts/files off the phone with a broken screen? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

use adb to pull your contacts & data files... hope you had usb debugging turned on.... might work in recovery.. never tried.

next time have your contacts save and sync to google. then you can just login to gmail to see/get use your contacts.

important files should be saved to external sd card whenever possible for this reason too.
