    Help! :eek: I did something stupid.
    I got home from vacation and my phone was acting very strange. Things kept disappearing and reapearing seemingly randomly. Never happened to me before with any of the iPhones I have had. Restarting and hard reset did not solve it. So decided to restore.
    The problem:
    I forgot to get all my vacation photos off of it before I restored and now they are gone! To make it worse. I had the wifi off to save battery on the long days of heavy usage during vacation and had not turned it back on so they didn't even transfer to any of my other devices. Even worse than that since the phone was acting so crazy I did not back it up before I restored it.
    Can I recover my vacation pics?
    Thank you

    You're saying none of your photos are on iTunes or any cd's or anywhere to your knowledge? Do you have any backups in iTunes that may have those photos?

    Once you restore your phone with no backup, then they are usually gone.

    No. I did the restore right when I got home from vacation so all my vacation pics are nowhere else. They were just on the phone.

    Have you checked your iTunes photo folders? Or you don't have anything saves, no backups or anything?

    I'm sorry for your loss of photos. Maybe someone has a suggestion to try to find them, but once you restore, they are gone. Usually it does an automatic sync when you restore.

    I have lots of backups but none that would have the vacation pics.
    Seems like they are gone. Really stinks!

    Are you using any memory card in your iPhone ?
    If its yes then you can recover your pics by using any photo recovery software. You can get this software after searching photo recovery software on internet. All the bst !

    You do know that iPhones do not have a memory card or a slot for one right?

    If you had the option checked to back up your photo reel to iCloud I would say do a restore with your iCloud backup. It will put all your photos back on your device. That's if you had the option enabled.
