The contacts are usually stored within your Google account, which you can log in to and see at https://contacts.google.com. If you see all of the needed contacts, then you can just use them on a new phone by logging in with your Google credentials. Your contacts can also be located on the microSD and SIM card, which can be placed into a new phone. The internal memory is hard to get into without access to the smartphone, and you will need to go to the Android Device Manager Web site.

In the worst-case scenario, just connect the smartphone to its special MHL adapter and run it via the HDMI cable into a television set with an HDMI input. This will allow you to use the touch screen on the S3 smartphone and look at the television set to monitor your actions. Unlock the device and connect it to your PC to back up the contacts.

If your touch screen is not working, then you will need to try to add a USB hub. Run the USB hub into the smartphone (you may need a female-USB-to-male-mini-USB adapter). Then, you will need to plug a computer mouse into a free USB port and the MHL cable into another free USB slot via a male-USB-to-female-mini-USB adapter. If it works, then you will be able to control your actions with a mouse on the television-set screen.
