    Default Am I able to recover photos on my iPhone 3G?

    I was wondering if I am able to recover photos/data from my iPhone 3G.

    After my iPhone was laggy after using Facebook, I decided to delete the app and reinstall it. But when I went to the App Store to reinstall it, it stated that I had already had it installed on my iPhone.

    So I decided to turn my iPhone 3G off and turn it back on again, with disastrous results. The screen shows only the Apple logo for about 20 seconds, before shutting off. I searched online and found that a restore of the iPhone is needed.

    So before I restore my iPhone 3G, is there any way I can recover all my precious photos from my phone??
    I didn't upgrade to the newest iPhone OS software as I had heard that it can brick iPhone 3Gs or make them really laggy, and I hadn't synced my iPhone to my iTunes in about 6 months, but of course, in that time, I had taken more photos which have not been synced to my computer.

    I've heard that there are places that you can send memory cards to, that help you recover data, but I don't know of any places for iPhone data recovery.

    Please help!!

    I think you will find that your photos are worth no where near the amount of money you would pay to a professional recovery firm. As the iPhone has no removable storage itself you are very close to out of luck in terms of recovering your photos.

    If the iPhone doesn't stay on for more than 20sec, there may not be much hope.

    Just what I thought... I rang the Apple tech line and they said pretty much the same thing. That I can't recover anything because I hadn't backed them up on my computer.

    When I plugged it into the USB cable connected to the computer, it tells me to connect it to iTunes to restore it. I think that's my only option now that I can't recover anything.
    Now I'll be backing up every week... Hard lesson to learn.

    If you would like to recover deleted photos from iPhone, you need to use iPhone data recovery. I know the best iPhone Data Recovery software can scan your iPhone deeply and find the deleted photos from your iPhone directly. It can also restore photos from iCloud and iTunes backup file for you. Learn how to recover deleted photos from iPhone here. You can also use this software to recover deleted contacts, videos, messages, notes, reminders, calendars, voice memos, voicemail, call history, Whatsapp messages form iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    As for the most recently deleted data, its better to use Coolmuster iPhone Data Recovery software. Coolmuster iPhone Data Recovery is such a useful utility that allows you to find and recover deleted data on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.

    Sorry to know that you can't get your data back. The trueth is that if the iphone can't stay on long enough, no recovery app will work to help. How about icloud? do you check the records here?

    First of all you need try to restore from your iTunes or iCloud previous backup files. If you didn't do a backup or have no full backup, you need turn to the iOS recovery tools, Doctor for iOS from MobiKin is recommended to have a try.

    You can use a recovery soft. Let me guess.... Last time probably I used EaseUS. Worked for me as well. Let me know if it works for you.

    To be honest, I have no idea about how to recover photos with iPhone command prompt. But I have heard that there are many recovery software can help us recover all deleted data, you can Google one software. Good luck to you.
