    Hi,

    I've had my iphone for a little over a week now and I'm curious as to how I can get items such as pictures out of my iphone trash and either back onto my iphone or just on to my computer. i haven't deleted the trash or anything, but there are items (mostly pictures - some of them sent in picture messages from other people), that are sitting in my trash that I would like to save, if possible. Also, when I go into my Finder app, and access the trash through there, my iphone often freezes as soon as I get into the trash.

    Any advice? Thanks.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to recover things from the trash on the iPhone.

    There is no trash on the iPhone, unless you are talking about email. For email, just open the message and then move it to another folder.

    For example, I go into the Finder app. In Finder, there is the apple icon in the upper right hand corner. When I tap that, It leads me to a menu with the following folders:

    Applications
    Bookmarks
    Sync
    Trash

    When I go into trash, there are a handful of pictures, icons, documents, etc.

    Am I able to move these anywhere?

    have you tried getting to that same folder through SSH?

    im sure you can find it with searching through folders there
