Customer Question

hello dustin, we have an LG flip phone (almost 12 years old. it broke in half an the strips came out. The phone works but the screen no longer lights up to see who is calling or to see my contacts. Verizon cannot transfer my contacts to another phone as they say they do not have the cord for it. Is there a way to get the screen to light up to get the contacts out of the phone?

Hi Denise,

The only way to get the contacts out of the phone is to get the screen working somehow. This will likely require replacing it.
