    How can i sync my phone this way?
    I have no screen swiping function at all, and Siri won't let me unlock it by voice. I want to sync and back up my phone to transfer to a new phone. is there a way to enter my passcode just so i can sync?

    Please help!

    Cheers

    When the device is connected via USB to iTunes, it should give you a prompt to "Back Up Now"...you can also select from the top banner menus under "File" and "Devices" to transfer items (which essentially syncs items from your iPhone to your storage device on your computer. Neither of these things should require a password if the iTunes you're using is also signed into your same account.

    Unless it's the first time that device has been plugged into that PC, then you will be prompted to unlock it first.

    Not the case. Thought that would solve my dilemma but it's still asking for a password.

    So what have you being doing with the device since March?

    to be honest with you, even for iphone 6plus the screens do not cost more that 50-60 dollars bought online, then look up video on how to replace screen, its fairly simple i do it all the time on my iphone 5s when i break the screen. and usually i can find a replacement screen for about 15$ if you look hard enough, i'm no pro but i can change a screen in 15-30 minuets. thats most definitely what i would do rather than spend 10-150$ to have it fixed at store. and if you do it since youve already purchased a new phone you can transfer info then sell it for much better price with fixed screen. just an idea! good luck.
