Method for retrieving data stored on the phone if screen goes blank?

Is there a way to get data (phone numbers, etc.) that was stored on my RAZR after the screen goes defective and does not light up? I used to have a Samsung phone through Sprint, and there, they could hook up your phone to a computer at a Sprint store and get a print out of all your numbers.

Is there something similar that can be done for Motorola RAZR phones through T-Mobile? If not, is there another method?

Cannot send messages on nokia n85. message goes into outbox for re sending 3 min later, but never works. messsage sign keeps blinking on top right of screen

There first thing to do is try to test another sim card and try to send messages if it's working or not. If not,please do this method.

1. erase unnecessary data first like messages,photo,videos etc. if they are stored on your phone memory,might be experiencing full memory that's why can't go on with this operation.

2. Format or reset your phone by typing this key on your home screen *#7370#,a lock code will be ask then enter the desire code of yours.If not change it before,enter the default code which is 12345.The phone will automatically restarts and it will go back to its original settings.remember that if you do this process,all data of yours such as contacts,messages,photo etc stored on the phone will be deleted,so back up all necessary files first before proceeding.

Hoping that this simple method really helps you..Thank you for visiting FixYa.

I have no screen and my numbers are stored on my phone how can i retrieve them with no screen


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.

If they are stored on the phone itself(SIM card) you can transfer the SIM to a new compatible phone.

Otherwise, you may have to take the phone into your local phone dealer like AT&T or Verizon and they may be able to help you retrieve the data.

I can't view my incoming text messages, every time I hit the select button it goes back to the previous display...

Unfortunately the only solution to this is full-reset, the problem is that all your data stored in the phone will be lost (Music, Games, Photos, Contacts stored in the phone etc). Also all the messages will be wiped to (and the very one causing the phone hanging too). You can find 'Reset to default' (or something like that) in the settings menu. The security code is 000000.
You can also try erasing the messages via the Mobile Phone Tools suite provided on the CD shipped with your phone, but I can't guarantee that this method would work. Although, since it doesn't affect all your phone's data like the previous one, you would definitely like to give it a try.

Blank screen motorola v220

You should store your numbers on your sim its safer. But the answer to the problem is you cant unless you replace the screen. Alternatively you could try adding an external phone screen via the phone usb port.

I know this sounds crazy but it works Put the cell in the freezer without any leather case for 10 to 15 minutes this will give you around 5 minutes to get into the stored memory and retrieve your stored data if 15 doesn't work I have gone up to an hour don't worry these phones are very durable people use them in sub zero temps with no problem good luck !

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 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.
