Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Numbers are stored on my phone how can i retrieve them

If you have a phone that is broken, a screen that is not working or just want to move phone numbers to a new phone, this article will help you do that.

If your phone numbers are stored on a external SD card you can plug the SD card into your computer or another phone to retrieve the numbers. You will need a SD card reader or a computer that already has one. Some newer laptops have a SD card reader. You can find external SD card readers at local electronics stores. I recommend visiting www.newegg.com(card reader examples) for your hardware needs. I have used this site extensively and the customer service, pricing and products are A+.

If your numbers are stored on the SIM card, you can move the SIM card to a new compatible phone. The SIM card generally contains your phone number and other account information from the phone carrier, however, you can use it to store phone contacts as well.

Your local phone dealer like AT&T or Verizon may be able to help you retrieve the data or move it to a new phone compatible phone.

Unless you bought good insurance for the phone, you get to use it with a broken screen. Clear packing tape over the screen will help keep it together but be prepared for degraded performance over time. Start saving up for a new phone and think about the replacement insurance next time.

There's also a decent article on other alternatives at: http://www.ehow.com/how_5202803_replace-fix-iphone-broken-screen.html

including a link to yiutube video showing how to replace the screen (not recommended).

Hope this helped

Shine a bright light on it and see if you can see and resemblance of the display on the screen. If you can see a display, the backlighting on the screen is broken - if you can't see a display, it's likely the screen is broken or the display controller is broken. Backlight would be the cheapest fix, usually. Also, you should be able to transfer your phone numbers over to a new phone by using the same SIM card so long as the phone numbers were stored on the SIM card - the only way to find out is to put it in another phone and check out the address book.
