So I recently dropped my phone (Oneplus One) and the screen cracked in a way where it no longer recognises touch what so ever (but it still displays everything). I want to extract files off the phone (contacts, photos, etc) without having to pay for a full screen replacement. Is there a way to do this?

(I've already tried connecting my OPO to my laptop via a USB cable, but the current settings only recognise the cable as a charging cable and so doesn't allow for file transfer. Obviously, I cant change the settings on the phone either since the screen is no longer responsive)

What you would really like to do it get a Bluetooth mouse paired up with the phone, but I do not see how you can do that without getting the touchscreen to work at least a little bit first.

If possible try to find the dissassembly instructions for your phone and see if you can open the thing up and giggle something so that the touchscreen at least partly operates. Then pair up a Bluetooth mouse with it.

This is not going to be easy ...
