How can I backup my Samsung Galaxy Note2 to transfer to my Samsung Galaxy Note4 when the screen is broken and the phone is locked?

I guess I never registered on Samsung's website, so I can't remotely unlock it.

If you never logged your Samsung Galaxy Note2 into a Samsung account, you won't be able to unlock it; in addition, you also won't be able to retrieve your Samsung application data through your Samsung account, either, since you never signed up for one. However, if you signed into a Google account and turned your phone's GPS chip on before the screen was broken, some of your data will be backed up to your Google account and you may be able to unlock your device using the online Google service called Android Device Manager. This service allows you to remotely lock or unlock your device and perform other remote functions should your phone become lost or stolen. However, since your screen is broken, you may be able to remotely unlock your phone so you can use an application like Samsung Kies to backup and restore your older phone's content to your new phone. If you're unable to use Android Device Manager to unlock your Samsung Galaxy Note2, there is unfortunately nothing you can do to backup your phone. Once your phone is locked, it protects all of your data by preventing any USB connections from accessing its folders and files. Unless you can turn your phone on and guess where the appropriate buttons are so you can enter your password, you will not be able to backup your phone. However, if you logged into a Google account, some of your information -- like contacts, pictures (if you set it up), and internet and application data -- will be stored in the cloud for retrieval as soon as you log into the account on your new phone.

Contacts from a broken screened Note II. to PC?

Hi, I have broken the screen of my Note II. I really need to get the contacts. The best I could achieve was to download Kies, but it fails to connect because the phone is set to photo gallery not data transfer. Have you got any ideas?
