    My iPhone iBricked last night. It went completely blank and I couldn't do anything. Well I came home and plugged it in, my PC recognized it however the phone was still just dead.

    So I did a system restore. All of my apps came back, etc. But I lost all data....my contacts, my pictures, my data in my apps. I have done system restores before and never had this problem. It even made me reset my voicemail, email, etc.

    I do not use outlook, etc. I had my iphone do backups, how can I retrieve this data? Or am I screwed?

    you might be able to save your contacts if you have saved them in your address book. If so plug you phone into your computer and in itunes go into the phone and under info scroll down to contacts and sync contacts the next time you sync your phone.

    I ended up doing an "iPhone Restore" from a backup a few weeks ago.


    Any tips on where I can save contacts on my PC if I don't have outlook?
