How to transfer data form S2 with broken LCD?

Hi, I've got S2 with broken LCD. So after connecting to laptop I have no possibility to unlock smartphone and choose data transfer. Unfortunately on my mobile I have a lot of important photos (first days of life of my son). Is there any chance to download this data on laptop? Thanks

I just set an 8 digit number pin on my Note3. I can't get in my phone now?

I have entered the pin slowly for 15 times. It keeps telling me it's the wrong pin. If I do a Hard Reset I'm going to lose the 600+ baby pictures I have on my phone of my 8 month old, among other important things. I don't know why my phone is not taking my password.

I'm trying to reset my Galaxy S3 to see if it will fix my touch screen problem. The back and menu button work fine but the actual screen itself doesn't work?

Touch screen problems and I'm not sure if I should just buy a new phone or if it's fixable.

Resetting the phone without using the touch screen is possible. Follow the tutorial on how to hard-reset a nonresponsive S3.

If hard-resetting did not solve your screen problem, then you need to bring the phone to a service center, as, probably, the screen connector, the screen itself, or the motherboard might need replacement.

How can I not lose the apps that I downloaded before?

I was wondering if I can do a hard restore without losing my apps as well. I have a few that are no longer available on the app store. I mean I can see that we can restore the data for the app, but what if we can't or don't have the app to restore to?. I have tried: I did the soft reboot and have taken out the SIM, SD chip, and battery longer than 10 minutes.. I think it was caused by: The phone is old and needs to be replaced to handle new apps, but I was told that this is not the issue. What is the problem then? My phone keeps turning off by itself and it lags.
