Help getting a data off iPhone, screen is broken, can't enter passcode

Hello,

Well, I probably already know the answer is going to be no, but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask.
Anyways, my friend dropped his iPhone and gave it to me after buying a new one. The screen doesn't work, I can't see it and the touch response does not work either.
It has a passcode which has to be entered before syncing to iTunes, the phone has never been synced to a computer before.
The problem isn't that I don't know the passcode, it's that I have no way to input it. I need the contacts and pictures, the problem is I can't get to them because it's locked with the passcode.
Any ideas?

Thanks for the input.
