My stupid iPhone has put itself in recovery mode, it just says connect to iTunes and the only way to work it again is to plug it in to iTunes and restore it loosing all of my photos etc.
I've got 2500 pictures on the plus loads of videos since last Christmas :((
i know it's my own fault for not backing it up but I'm so gutted. All of those special memories of E growing up over the last year, learning to talk etc, 2nd birthday party. gone.

Oh no! Have you not ever backed it up? How are your settings set is it manually back up or via iCloud?

Manual backed up. I do transfer pictures over but just haven't for ages because it takes so long on my crappy laptop :(

Do you have an apple store or authorised retailer nearby? Could you go and see them and see what they can do?

Definitely get someone who knows to look at your phone. My friend had a similar problem with her Iphone recently and thought she'd lost all her photos but they were rescued.

Oh no, I'd be so upset - hope you manage to sort it out.
Might be worth looking into getting dropbox or something similar - I have dropbox and photo's are automatically loaded onto there as soon as I take them.

My H downloaded 3 programs that are supposed to extract files from iPhones in recovery mode and none would work so he restored it! Everything deleted :( luckily I've sent a lot of videos to my mum and friends and photos are on fb so I can get some things back but it's not the point. Still gutted.
