    My iPhone says I need to restore to iTunes. The only function available is to make an emergency call.
    However, calendar reminders are still popping up and my alarm keeps going off each morning, so it seems that information is still stored in the phone.
    Is there a way to recover/backup Photos, Notes, and Contacts that haven't been synced to iTunes before I restore it?

    Back it up, if you can.

    You can attempt to make a backup by plugging your iPhone into your computer, then once it shows in the iTunes window, right click it's icon and select 'Create Backup' or something of that nature.

    I'm pretty sure iTunes will not let you back up the phone though, because it is requesting a restore.
