What you need to do is to follow the "How to Back-up Your Samsung Galaxy Data Prior to a Hard Reset" of the tutorial. However, you will also need to unlock your phone if it had lock-screen security.

  • If your touch screen retains the touch function, you can use a cable, depending on your Samsung model, that will connect your phone to the TV. Most likely, a Galaxy HDMI Adapter like this or a MHL 2.0 HDTV Smart Adapter like this. Then, you will need an HDMI cable to connect your phone and TV. Touch the screen on the phone and look at the TV screen to unlock your phone. Then, you can disable fast screen time-out and connect your phone to Kies to back it up.

  • You can also unlock your phone easily through the https://findmymobile.samsung.com/ service. Log in with your Samsung credentials, click your device on the screen. Then, expand "Protect my device". Click "Unlock my screen". Click "Unlock". This will unlock the phone.

Galaxy (4) screen black and I need to know how to transfer information to other Galaxy (3)?

Hi, I have had some issues with my phone lately but have always managed to have it come back on after a while. (The screen would flicker if on low light setting) sometimes it wouldn't turn on and I would have to wait 5-10 seconds and try again which is when the screen would turn on. It has this morning completely died I think so I can't unlock the pattern or see anything at all. I do have another phone I could transfer things on to but how can I do that if I cannot see a thing on it?. Thanks,. Vlad. I have tried: Restarting, taking bat out, the usual (as per my description in previous question). I think it was caused by: Droppage a few months ago

I have Tracphones, Disabled so free, that are blocked, or broken, I was wondering if I could get the data off the SIM cards. Samsung 150 old phones, I have one that hooks to computer, but I don't know where to find text messages? I have tried: Hooking it up. I did backup on one of them. Android? I don't even know what to look for to see the text messages or where.. I think it was caused by: I broke two of them. Others just are old.
