You're out of luck trying to copy to a PC or doing something similar. The built-in security is pretty good. Best solution is to find someone with the same type of phone. Take your screen off and temporarily replace it with their screen. Remove contacts. At this point you can junk your phone, or purchase a new screen. Be sure to give your friend a nice dinner!

The screen on my NOKIA 2610 is broken, and I need to save contacts on my SIM card without being able to see the screen.


You can insert the SIM card into an unlocked cell phone and you can use this phone with the contacts that are on the SIM card.

Phone has died and I need my phone contacts


The only option in this case is to have the phone repaired and retrieve the numbers by transferring it into your sim.

My old LG cell phone (LGCU400) broke and was replaced with a newer model (LGECU515). I put my old sim card in the new phone but I cannot retrieve any of my contacts/info from the sim card. Is there...


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!

Sony Ericsson Z525A-COPY PHONE NUMBERS TO SIM CARD -BLANK SCREEN


to retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some time...it takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cable2.gif for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.
