Default need to get contacts off phone with cracked screen.. HELP - Android.

drop my HTC Thunderbolt. its not rooted. screen is cracked and i cant use the touchscreen so i cant get passed the lock screen. i was able to get about half my contacts from my google account and i dont use the vzw backup assistant. i plugged my phone into the computer but i cant access the phone at all since i have to choose that option from the phone itself. anyone know of how i can get to them? they are not on the sd card either. need a way to access the phone without using the touchscreen.

adb was able to detect my phone, so if there is a way to extract my contacts that way, someone let me know please.

since you have verizon just go into a verizon store and they can transfer your contacts to another phone without a working screen

Why didn't you have all your contacts sync through Gmail or Hotmail? That way emails, contacts, and your calendar items sync over the air.

Google automatically backs all of this up to your Gmail account........

Did you purposefully tell it not to do this?

So yeah.. spray the contacts that's stuck on the cracked screen with Opti-Free eye solution and carefully use your fingers to lift the contacts off the screen... that is all.

Only if you remembered to create them as google contacts and not phone contacts. Learned that one the hard way

Not true, the phone automatically syncs contacts and random settings up to Google servers. Just tested this last week when I SBF'd my phone. Contacts, settings, hell even the wallpaper came back.
