Sending keypresses to a locked Nokia phone

The keypad on my Nokia 515 (Series 40 feature phone) is water damaged, so I'm unable to enter my PIN code, or allow my Windows system to connect to it via Nokia PC Suite. I was wondering if I could set up and use Gnokii in order to send "keystrokes" or "keypresses" to it in order to unlock it.

I've connected the Nokia phone to my Linux (Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)) system, via the provided, standard micro USB-to-USB cable. It starts charging, and lsusb gives me the following:

> Bus 001 Device 013: ID XXXX:XXXX Nokia Mobile Phones

I have then installed gnokii and entered the following to the gnooki config file:

> [global]
> model = series40
> port = 1
> connection = dku2libusb

When trying to identify the phone, I get the following error message:

> GNOKII Version 0.6.30
> Couldn't open PHONET device: Operation not permitted
> Telephone interface init failed: Command failed.
> Quitting.
> Command failed.

I've also installed the Windows port of gnokii on my Windows 7 machine, with the following config settings:

> [global]
> port = com1:
> model = series40
> connection = serial

When running gnokii there, I get an error saying "Couldn't open FBUS device: Result too large", "Error in link initialisation: 1".

Not sure I have set the config file up correctly, or if gnokii can even connect to a phone which is not unlocked.

Would be much grateful for any support. My goal is to be able to unlock the phone (i.e. entering my PIN code) and then connecting my phone to my Windows system in order to transfer my contacts and files from it.
