Can I back up an Android 'phone with a borked screen ?

Sony Experia L on a VM SIM so it's set up however they do it. Would like contact list and SMS messages to go straight into the replacement 'phone which arrives tomorrow as if nothing happened.

Moved here from Android subforum where it garnered zero replies :)

Screen garbled mess 'part from a very slim line of pixels at the top. Getting swapped out today and just wondering if it's possible to back up via USB without any kind of backup software already on it (I know some exist).

Have you downloaded pc companion from Sony?

Should be able to backup everything you want with that

Nope. If it can run from the laptop then ace; if it needs 'phone access then probs unlikely to work unless screenpress-guessing pays off. Cheers though. Will look now.
