Restore contacts when touchscreen not working.

So i just wanted to share my long day with you. I had spilled beer on my phone and there was liquid stuck between the touch screen that runs on the top and the lcd. It worked fine for a month...then i couldnt use th screen anymore because everytime i made an input it would never be where i intended it to be. After much frustration and stubbonness (hahaha) I took the whole thing apart...unscrewed it all and loosed the touichscreen enough to dry the liquid out. I put it all back together and no luck still messed up. I didn't use PIM backup for like the past 3 months and i needed to get contacts. I used the USB and extracted the PIM.VOL and everything and after much research discovered this tiny little b***h file could not be read on a PC with a previous conversion to read it in Excel. I was pissed...then i accidently hit the send key and up came the voice dialer...ALAS! I uttered the words "Open Contacts"...and out popped my list of contacts! I was unable to access them any other way...considering the whole phone is touch screen. So if worse comes to worse don't smash your head on everything on the planet use VOICE COMMAND!

HAHAHAHA hopefullly i help someone...some other individual like me...who spills beer on their phone raging and has to pay for it. Thank you for letting me rant.

Re: Restore contacts when touchscreen not working.

You can still probably control it through your PC using MyMobiler
