Re: Screen Badly damaged
The easy way is through a USB cable attached to a computer running Motorola Phone Tools (MPT), while MPT isn't free, there is a shareware version HERE that might work for what you need. Also depending on what service you have, your carrier might be able to do a "Backup" of your contacts via remote transfer, which could work well when you can't see your screen.
Another, free option is BitPim (scroll down to find it) , which is a bit different to use, but still very easy for copying contact information to your computer. I'd try this first because it is free and almost as easy as MPT. You might have some trouble connecting to your phone if you have a Verizon phone, but you should be able to quite easily retrieve the data.
Replacing the screens isn't too difficult and could save you $ if you can find a good screen on eBay. Or you could get yourself a new phone!!

Firstly, did you try removing the battery from the phone and leaving it out overnight? This might solve you white screen issue. Secondly, is your phone able to boot into file transfer mode? The final solution would be to flash your phone to fix the firmware and then you will have access to your data. Here is more info:
Hello! I went to the AT&T/Cingular store and they tried hooking my broken phone to their system but could not retrieve any #s (they were saved to my phone not my SIM). They told me there was no other way to retrieve the #s and that a computer cable wouldn't work bc their system would've been able to retrieve them. I knew there had to be some way of retrieving them bc I could still turn my phone on- the top 1/2 (screen) had just broken off. It finally dawned on me to look at my husband's phone (we had the same one), write down the buttons to press & the # of clicks per button on my old phone, in order to blindly go through my entire contacts list and save each one to my SIM card. Approximately every 25 contacts I saved I'd switch the SIM card to my new phone and make sure they were all saving correctly. I'm currently still transferring all 137 contacts- grueling but well worth it. This only works if your old phone will still turn on & function even if you can't see/use the screen. ***Make sure your phone's saving your contacts to your SIM and not your phone- I thought mine was and it was one rude awakening today when I found out otherwise! I hope this helps!
try this one. just go to contacts then just look for copy all then there is a message that will appear that says copy all to phone or copy all to sim card. just try and try to fix the phonebook of your phone you will see it.
