Recovering lost iPhone Pictures - TUTORIAL
Sorry mac users, this is a windows only tutorial!
first thing you need to do is download Irfanview (www.irfanview.com)
Open irfanview, and click the open button (first button in the tool bar)
Navigate to the folder that contains your iPhone backups:
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Inside this folder there will be a few folders (I had four). Each is either a different phone setup, or a different set of backups. Check the last modified date on the folder to decide which to explore first.
Make sure that the preview active check box is checked, and select the first file in the list.
Using your Arrow key, arrow down until a photo appears in the preview box.
If this is a photo you wish to save, open it and click File, Save As, and resave the picture as a proper JPG.
I find this easiest if you sort the files by size before opening one, and making a mental note of which file you were on (by its size). My folder had around 500 files in it, so this may take you a while, but just be patient!
hope this helps someone!
let me know if you have any questions

So, when I delete photos, they're not really deleted? So, if I sell my iPhone someday, if the person is clever and reads this thread, they can find all of my deleted photos?

hey, can anyone help me? i am trying to recover my deleted photos from my iphone.
i did the steps as above and managed to see what was last backed in my backup folder. when i want to rename some, this was prompted
"Cant read file header..Unknown file format or file not found!
(for unicode file names please activate the unicode plugin in properties > language"
there are about 5000 over files in that backup file.
what should i do?

The Camera Roll is for temporary storage. Photos/videos in the Camera Roll can and should be imported by your computer ASAP as with any other digital camera. The Camera Roll is also included with the iPhone's backup, which is updated by iTunes as the first step during the iTunes sync process.
If the photos/videos were not imported by your computer and your iPhone wasn't synced with iTunes since the photos/videos were captured by your iPhone, there is some ways to recover them.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!
