    If an iPhone is stuck on the lock screen, meaning you can't enter your pin, and Apple say they can only restore it as a new device meaning you'd lose all your data, how much would a data recovery specialist charge to get the data back?

    I imagine if you were to plug it into your computer there must be some sort of app that can read the data ... although I'm not sure if the iPhone has to be unlocked or jailbroken first. :(

    I do have an app but I'm at work I think its called something iPhoneBOT? I can double check when I'm back home.

    Basically you select what data you want copied and it will then create an iPhone back up, if I'm right in saying been a while since I've used it, so then you can start again but without loosing data, BUT I'm not 100% sure if it will work with a locked iPhone.

    *EDIT* I assume there is no backup of this iPhone on your computer or iCloud?

    No backups. And I also presumed these recovery apps don't work if you can't unlock the phone?

    I'd have to check my one when I'm home.

    its called iBackup Bot, i think you can extract all the data into a folder of your choice, then literally just upload it into iTunes when the device is connected. it will then transfer it across and create a new back up with your data.

    Or rather when you can't unlock the phone because it's stuck.

    Always gotta have a backup just in case, you just never know, like in this instance.
