People are still sending me texts even though I can't read them. I've gotta get a replacement quick, but I also need to get the important texts I missed. Is there any way I can get them through my pc?
To be clear, the screen is completely blank but I can still unlock it via touch pattern. It takes a few tries but Android File Transfer on the mac will tell me if it can or can't connect. If it can't, I just try again and I can get it. So the touch part still works, it just doesn't show any information.
The phone is a Galaxy Nexus. When I connect it to my Mac, I can see the files in it via the Android File Transfer window. However, I can't find the texts here.
I have the Android SDK installed and I was told I can do this:
adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/mmssms.db
However the device shows up as
offline when I do
adb devices. I can't figure out a way get it showing up as
online without being able to use the screen.
