My son threw my samsung android phone, it is fully functional but I have the swipe screen password option and where the screen is cracked I can't put in password to access my phone. I have no issue with getting a new phone but every picture and video of my son from birth is on this phone and not saved to SIM card. Please help

If you can, go to a koodo store to buy your new phone. They will be able to transfer your pictures and videos to the new phone.

Check the Kijiji listings for cell phones in your area. There is usually someone who can replace the screen. Verify that data will remain intact.
Thank you Rudy, I'm devastated.

Just plug your phone into the computer and you should be able to access your pics from there.

In the future make sure your phone regularly backs up your photo's to cloud. Google+ has a great photo backup app

Also, SIM cards don't store anything. They only carry your phone number and plan/service. They can store up to 500 name/phone # contacts, I believe, but that's about it.
