    you probably need to restore your most recent backup with itunes, then you would transfer whatever it is you want to save to the computer using your iphone. I dont think you can view the things stored in the itunes backup without actually restoring the backup to your phone.

    So you want to take an iPhone that deleted these messages, emails, and photos, somehow get them back, but only view them on a computer and no the iPhone? Doesn't even sound remotely possible. Also, sounds kind of shady, but who am I to judge?

    Messages and photos can be fully recoverd with some data recovery apps, do a search on app store or google. I am uncertain about the email recovery.
    BTW, what kind of email service you use?

    you can get imessages and photos back if have backup

    -If you have backed up using icloud or itunes. you can restore from it easily. Your imessages and photos will be back.
    -If you don't have backup and your device is iPhone 4/3GS, you could try to use a 3rd-party tool called dr fone to scan your device and get some data.
    -Or you might lose them forever.
