I just bought a Pre2 on Verizon so I can switch and get off of AT&T. But I still have lots of data on my unlocked GSM Pre2, which I cannot afford to lose. Now that the sim has been deactivated, how do I go about transferring all that data out of my old Pre2?

I tried connecting a USB cable to my old Pre2 so I can try and transfer the data out that way, but it would keep saying that I need to activate the sim first before letting me have access to the data.

I would appreciate any help in this matter, because there are alot of important data I need to transfer over, and I would hate to lose them any of it.
