If the data on it is important, buy another screen. Otherwise, you've now learned how important it is to make frequent backups. :D

Iphone 5 is very easily repaired if you purchase the entire display assembly (including home button, LCD shield, etc).

iFixit has a step by step tutorial here and I think they sell the assembly, though eBay may have better pricing if you are careful in reading descriptions and such.

I know this isn't the answer you want, but especially with a lock code and/or if you haven't selected to "Trust" the computer with your iPhone functioning you won't have access to the device's memory (at least to the best of my knowledge)
