    How to access phone with lock screen?

    Hey all. I was quad riding and I had a bit of an accident. Well, long story short, I shattered the screen (As shown). I have a lot of music and pictures I would like to get from the phone, but I ran in to one measly problem. I put a lockscreen on it, and the Droid MAXX doesn't allow a computer to read the phone unless you bypass the lockscreen. So, I guess my question would be, how do i recover all my stuff while it has a lockscreen?

    That is nice! OK, so, you can't unlock the screen, and pluggin it in doesn't work? Unless it's all on an SD Card, I'd say you're pretty much SOL. Maybe someone knows a different way, but I do not. Sorry man. That sucks.

    Motorola got real weird with this phone. Too many safety features if you ask me, but hey, its a good phone. When I plug it in, the LED lights up, so I know its charging, its just that the computer doesn't recognize it so its like on a charge only mode. Also, fun fact, there is no SD card, so I'm kind of screwed. I CAN take it in but they want $350 for parts and labor. So, another question I would have would be, is it worth it?

    $350? To replace the screen? I had the screen replaced on a Samsung Galaxy S3 and it only costs me $170. I'd try a local cellphone repair store if I was you. It sounds like it's waiting for you to allow the data transfer when you plug it in. That's why your computer's not see it, because it's not making itself available until you tell it to.

    Might be a crazy question, but did you ever pair a mouse or keyboard with it? Does that phone have HDMI out? Could use an external display to see and a mouse/keyboard to navigate. Long shot, I know.

    Also, what about Android Device Manager? Can that unlock it remotely so you can plug it in to the PC?

    Local repair guy is charging that much. Apperantly the phone is very new so that's why its a bit pricey. When I plugged my phone in, I let it sit for a couple minutes thinking it needs time to communicate with the phone, but still nothing. Sadly, Droid MAXX got rid if the HDMI port and went with wireless screen share. I haven't paired any mouse or keyboard to it. Actually, this is my first time hearing about that lol. As for Android Device Manager, I have CM Security, but it only allows me to locate or lock the device.

    I feel bad for that Droid Maxx. I think if you get another one, you should have a case for it if you're going off roading. l will admit that I don't use cases when I ride horses. Even if you just take use the case for off roading and take it out when you're doing other stuff

    Actually, I had an Otter box on it. It completely demolished the case and my leg lol. But I'm fine, thanks.
