Question about Motorola Mobility V551

Everything works but the screen. Need help to recover address book

Hi All! One day both screens (internal and external) on my Motorola V551 died right in front of my eyes while I was going through some menues on the phone. The phone is fully functional, i.e. I can receive or send calls, Bluetooth is working, as everything else. I decided to get a new phone instead, but want to recover my address book. Guys in Cingular store could not connect to it. I aslo tried to copy address book to a sim card using my friend's V551 as a guide to get to the right menue, but when I checked the sim card after several attwempts, it remained empty, i.e. no phone were copied. I connected with Bluetooth to my phone, by address book is not accesible via bluetooth. I don't know what else I can try to recovery the phonebook?!? Does anyone know if address book is accessible using data cable? If yes, I might try to get one. Other ideas?

Re: Everything works but the screen. Need help to recover...

I had the same problem, and i tried this:

turn off your phone and turn it back on, but don't open the flip phone all the way... so that the phone makes a 90 degree angle... and the screen should come back on.

don't flip it open all the way, that's when it'll mess up.

If the phone works, but the screen does not, it may be the video flex cable. This is simple to do, but you do need the correct part, and a T6 screwdriver. Try these two links on how to replace it.

I just got off of the phone with Motorola and they told me that the infformation can be extracted with a data cable, but you have to have the Motorola phone tools software.

Yes you can access the address book using a data cable, but why don't you just take out the sim card if the numbers are stored on there? Or are they stored on the phone? I have a v551 with the sme problem that i am trying to fix so I have mine in pieces. If I can fix it I will let you know.

Motorola cellular 385 water damage

Ok to get the battery our you just have to slide the back cover down and walla pry that puppy out. To ficx the screen there are a couple options which may or may not work... You can take of the all the faceplates and try to use a blowdryer to dry everything off, or you can take of the faceplates and put the phone in a bag of rice for a couple of days(the rice will absorb moisture). you can try this with the faceplates on also but it would work better if they were off. I hope this helps a bit. GOOD LUCK!!!
