Sorry to hear that. Only after debugging your phone first, you can use Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android later.

Any way to enable debugging blind? My screen functions by touch but doesn\'t show anything. I can unlock it by swipe but cannot see. I already purchased the software and really need the contacts/files.

chandra venkat kiran reddy, deleted files can be recovered only when they are not overwritten by new files. If you used your phone after deleting the data, there may be new data generated, and it can overwrite the deleted files. If this is the case, I\'m afraid that the overwritten data can not be recovered by any way.
