My daughter's Nexus S touchscreen has died so we can't get through the pattern screen to do anything.

It's under warranty but before I send it back to VF to have it fixed, in case they wipe it, just wondering if there is a way to get the data off. She is keen on photos and SMS. Some of the photos might have been backed up to Google but SMS certainly not.

Thanks

You wont be able to get the SMS off (well you can but with difficulty) you can take a /system or /data dump off it if that helps (from fastboot) assuming the phone is not rooted or anything?

Well I booted into fastboot and I can see the phone. I could flash custom recovery but that means unlocking the boot loader but that means all the data would be lost. I thought I could take a nandroid backup but that isn't going to work, I also can't see the phone with adb but I think that's because USB debugging is off and since I can't get to android there is no way to turn it in.

Hopefully VF repair won't erase all all the flash memory just to fix the screen unless they replace the phone of course.
