Urgent! acces to internal memory.

Hello everyone, i have a nokia lumia 520, i bought it in 2013, july. So recently my screen broke and the touch is not working. only the top row of my keypad is working. Unfortunately, i kept it password protected so i cannot acces my phone now. Is there anyway to access data from the internal memory without changing the screen. I seriously cannot afford the 50$ screen repair as of now and I desparately need the data. The data includes a few documents , photos and a photo lock app which has some important photos. And also...i didnt backup any of these in one drive.

Re: Urgent! acces to internal memory.

1. you can't put in your PIN so you can't access the phone directly. You need the PIN to access the phone from a PC.

2. OK! you should just have your stuff backed up on On-- oh.

Honestly, I don't know what to say, except to take this as an expensive lesson in the value of backups? because we can't get to the phone otherwise. (unless the data is on the SD card, which in that case you can just take that out)
