    So what's the problem? What do you want us to answer? Do you want to know if you can recover the old photos? No, those are gone if you only had them on your iPhone. Anything that was erased off the iPhone cannot be recovered from it. Don't use your iPhone as a backup device. And you should always backup before you format a hard drive.

    i want to get itunes to recover all the apps i have on the iphone and do not delete them when i sync, because if i sync the iphone and itunes doesn't have the apps it will erase them from the iphone. like a backwards sync if you can call it that, have te iphone "send" the apps it has in it to the itunes

    If you authorize your iTunes now you can just log into the Apple store and a list of purchased/downloaded applications would be on there somewhere anyways wouldn't they?
