    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 :(

    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?
