If the touchscreen is broken,there is no way you could even recover.I am sorry.

if you use a cable like this you can connect a mouse and then unlock your screen. Thats how i did it.

How did you turn it off and on when you can't use the touch screen to confirm switch off! I have the same problem - O2 will repair my phone if I send it off but it will be wiped and I have lots of stuff that I want from it :-(

if its the same as the Z1 there's a tiny red reset button next to the Sim card holder, press it in it turns the phone off but doesn't restart it
