    I dropped my first DROID, that ive had since it was released and the screen stopped working. The phone is still powered on and when I touch the screen to unlock it still works,, with tactile feedback. But the backlight to the screen and 4 home buttons will not light. I ordered a new phone already, but I am going to disassemble this to see if it was just the wire that came unplugged.

    Anyone know how I can copy ALL of the info from my phone, including stuff saved internally?

    depends if you're rooted or not. if you ARE rooted,
    Titanium backup. 'nuff said.
    if you aren't rooted, i assume you don't have sprecovery.... so i believe you are out of luck :(

    every app and all taht is tied to your google account.

    you're going to lose all your text messages and anything else saved on the internal memory of your phone (such as high scores for games)

    the rest will be on your SD card.

    Well I have a sms backup on my sd card, my contacts are saved in google. Im concerned about apps, and anything else I would want. Where can I find all the apps I downloaded? For instance I bought beautiful widgets but I cant find it in the market anymore, I wont be able to get it again :(

    You have a air flow problem did you change filter ?look at evap coil?and yes check for birds nest in flue pipe? theres a reason you call a tech before you start changing parts it could be a simple fix not an expensive one

    Technically, yes but if you can't see the screen it would be hard to back anything up.

    Don't they want the phone back? Or did you pay full price for the new one?
