    Hey all,

    I just updated my iphone 3GS to the latest version. However, I didn't realize my MacBook Pro was running out of battery while doing so.

    While the iphone was rebooting, the MacBook died and the iphone started in recovery mode. iTunes is now asking to restore the iphone to its original parameters in order to be used with my MacBook Pro.

    Let me add that my iphone has never been jailbroken, and that I have never done a save of it before. Basically, if I go to restore mode, I'll lose my text messages and photos taken with the phone.

    Any way to avoid losing that data ? Please help :(

    Will I lose data if I hit the restore button (text messages and pics) ?
