A smartphone is rendered useless when the device's screen is broken. Most people actually believe that there is nothing that can be salvaged if the screen breaks. While this is true for the device itself, until you can get the screen fixed. It is not accurate in regards to the data on the device. If you had a backup of the data including the contacts, you can easily restore this data to a new device or your device once the screen has been fixed.
