You can sync it to a pc with MS Outlook. If you have a password set you'll have to type it into the keyboard on the BB and hit Enter.

Thanks, If you do not use Outlook/ OE are there any other applications freely available?

Google Sync. But I'm not sure if you will be able to set it up on the device if the "screen is unreadable".

I have successfully replaced the lcd screen with a new one that I purchased on the internet, so it is business as usual.
