    The iPhone is not the most open among gadgets. And it isn’t easy to get your data off it. Apple has tried it’s best to hide any iPhone related information from the user’s view. And they have succeeded to an extent, atleast the primary consumers of Apple’s goods don’t really care where (or more importantly, how) the data is stored, as long as Apple provides an application to access it.

    In the iPhone’s case, the application is iTunes and the only way to put this data back on to the device is to use iTunes … unless you know where to look for it

    I think you've lost them. I don't believe it backs the photos up if you haven't imported them into Aperture or iPhoto or whatever.

    They're gone unless you transferred them on to your computer before you restored it.

    Calm down there buddy. NO phone would be able to recover those photos if the OP hadn't backed up between the time they were taken and the time the phone broke and they got a replacement. You can't really restore something that doesn't exist, can you? OP - If you didn't back up, they're gone, sorry.
