    Dropped my phone and screen cracked. The screen display still works but it doesn't register any touch so i can't unlock it. I have connected it to my pc but I still need to unlock it to get anything off it. I assume the screen is the most common thing to break on a phone so surely there is a way to unlock it and retrieve files through the windows phone app on my pc it would be stupid if there isn't.

    In case Microsoft had their heads in the cloud and didn't think anyone in the world would break their screens and still need access to their locked phones files is there anyway to mirror the phones screen on my computer so I could enter the pin that way?

    Thanks

    I am sorry to hear that your touchscreen broke. But if it is very easy to bypass the PIN what use has this security feature?
