What can you do with a phone that has a broken touchscreen?

I have been asked recently to try to recover some data from a broken phone. The catch: the data was in the internal memory, the option to connect the phone as an external drive via USB was turned off and the touchscreen was broken. So what can you do in such a situation? It turns out that quite a lot, and even though I haven't eventually managed to recover the data, the fight with the phone was pretty interesting and I think it deserves a bit of attention.
