Retrieving contacts from Nokia 5800 half dead?

My old nokia 5800 is probably dead, i dont know, i had an accident with it, so it shattered, i managed to put back its pieces and when i plug it to the computer and the power, it sounds like if it were detecting it but rapidly it goes off, like if i were pluggin it in and out all the time. so i have a tiny hope its not fully dead.

my contacts are in the internal memory of the phone, i have already checked the external card. any help with this?

see this video please to see what actually happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSrh1yW9UhI

and sorry for my english, its not my main language. Thanks.

It has what is called "weak contacts" either with the power supply or with the connection to the computer.

Try different temeratures & different humidity to find the correct combination to get a "reliable connection" that should allow you to retreive your data.

As the Nokia is broken this is a "hit or miss" method that may or may not be sucessful after multiple attemps so:
Good Luck

Also try another (new) cable to connect it to the computer.

If you do not have air conditioning to try different temeratures & different humidity then put the Nokia in a sealed plastic bag, then cool it in the refrigerator or heat it in the sun to see if this temerature change achieves the correct combination to get a "reliable connection" that may allow you to retreive your data.

Good Luck & many attempts may be required.

Failing that will require a professional data recovery service to retreive your data.

I've tried the cold option a few times and its not working, the cable works smoothly with all the other devices so i guess its not an issue.

Now i must try the "heat" option.

The contact pins from the phone to the battery was broken, (see picture) i had to purchase a piece and use that press to make sure its attached to the phone. **They are not soldered**
