    My Lumia 520's screen broke and now I can't unlock the phone. Is there any way to unlock it without having to replace the screen? I have some files I really want but I can't see them since I can't unlock my phone. Is there absolutely no way to get to these files without replacing the screen?

    Unfortunately, there seems to be no other way to unlock the phone aside from screen input.

    If you have a friend with a 520 you could ask to "borrow" his screen so you could get your data from your phone. If so check YouTube, the screen replacement is relatively easy to do.
    And to be clear replace to total assembly so screen and digitizer.
