broken screen, can't backup. HELP !
my iphone 4S screen has been cracked. i want to do a backup before i send it off for repair. however, when i connect to itunes and try to backup, a message pops up saying i have to enter the pin code on the phone. the problem is i can't use the screen on the phone to enter the code. is there any way around this ? maybe a way to enter the pin on itunes instead ?

I understand that your screen is 'cracked', but is it cracked to the point of not being able to see anything on the display? The reason I ask is because my daughter has cracked the screens on 3 different iPhones and was still able to use them until I got them repaired. Still, to answer your question, if you cannot see any activity on the screen, I doubt that you will be able to backup the device via iTunes without first unlocking the device, but I might be wrong.

Do you have iCloud backup set to on? If you do, leave it charging when you sleep tonight while connected to wifi and sometime within those 8 hours it will back up on iCloud. I think you can even change the setting to back up on iCloud on iTunes when it's connected. Wouldn't require a pin code to make that change.
