Please help.  My son never sync'd his iphone4 to the cloud or to any computer. 


Just recently, he had some problem with his gmail linked to his iphone, so he unlinked them. Thus, he lost his notes from his iphone.  He did not know they were still associated with his gmail.


He tried restoring the notes with some program he downloaded with his brother's mac.  During the restore, the restore program stopped working half way.  In addition, we are concerned that the restore was restoring his whole iphone.


Now his iphone shows the picture of a USB plugging into the iTunes icon.


We're afraid to try to sync him into his laptop and thus losing everything on his iPhone.


Can anyone help?

iPhone 4
