    hi there. i have an iPhone that was dropped so hard the glass shattered AND the touchscreen is not responsive. only 1/3 of the screen is even working. all buttons work, and it charges. it hasn't been backed up for quite a while via iCloud, and tons of our wedding/honeymoon pictures weren't backed up. it hasn't been connected to iTunes, and i am unable to unlock the phone or enter iTunes' code. any way to get anything off of this? ideally a full backup, but even pictures would be great.

    Could you try to repair the touch screen? If there is no further, uh, damage within the phone, maybe replacing the touch screen would help, a lot.
