I purchased a new iphone4s and used it for some time. Took very nice pictures for my cousin's wedding. One day after, I decided to recover my old iphone 3gs data. However, I lost all the pictures in my iphone 4s. I did not back up before recovery. Is there any way to get the photos back? I tried wondershare, but it did not help.



iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    There are at least a dozen ways to preserve photos taken with an iPhone. If you didn't use any of them they are gone forever.

    If you didn't back up to iTunes, back up to iCloud, import photos to an app on your computer, or enable Photostream, they are gone.


    There are web sites that clam to have apps that can recover lost photos and other data on the phone without needing a backup, but I can't verify that they work, or even if the web sites are not identity theft scams.
