    Ok so my dad dropped his phone (Samsung Reality- basic phone) and the screen is all busted. Touch works but you can't see what you're clicking on. He wants to backup his photos but they are in the internal memory not on the microsd. I can't see what I'm clicking so I don't know what to do. Help is much appreciated.

    Hmm...not seeing the screen will be a pain...Is the phone rooted at all?

    Oh whoops never mind I was thinking of a different phone. See if you can find a link on Youtube that gives a tutorial on moving photos to the sd card and then just sort of...judge your touches based on that.

    Ok I'll try that. If I can't find a video do you know any other ways?

    Uhh not really, I don't personally own the phone so I can't really give extensive information.

    I see. Yeah it's a pretty unpopular basic phone. Can't find any videos.

    Ah, same and annoying problem like my brother's phone, his phone is a Samsung galaxy q, and omg, he let his friend hold it, and he ''accidentally'' broke it. Its annoying to feel the crack, and see it, his only method is to insert and take out the micro sd adapter from the back and re insert it.

    That's all I can say, ATM.

    Sure is annoying. Can't see the screen and not knowing what your clicking is the worst.
    [EDIT] I'm trying to do it blind by looking at some pictures of the menus and clicking on the corresponding spaces but I can't tell if I'm doing anything wrong or if I'm even on the right page. I can't seem to know what to do. By the looks of it most of the menus are the same as any basic phone but with some tweaks because of the touch screen.

    100% agreed. Like when you feel it, makes you feel like throwing the thing in the trash..
