    Hey guys!

    I recently updated my mothers iPhone, using the usual computer that I sync it with for music, apps, etc. She hadn't updated the software on it since she bought it, back in October 2011. When I updated the phone to 5.1.1, it seemed that the phone was working fine. However, after looking into the phone further, I found that almost all the contacts had been deleted, and all the mail. Some random contacts were left. I was wondering if there is a way to recover these things, as there were some important emails that were lost. I updated it using a computer, and using options on the computer.

    If anyone could help me, that would be amazing!

    I assume you followed the well known road of creating a back up first !

    Just use that back up from your computer or iCloud.
