    sur4dye has offered a very bad suggestion. If you connect and sync, if the pics are gone from the computer they _will be deleted_ from the iPhone.

    You need something like TouchCopy to get them back.

    However, be warned that as part of the 'optimization' process for transferring pics to the iPhone, the resolution was reduced. So, you will not be able to recover the 'originals', only low resolution versions.

    I'd suggest you consider acquiring an external HDD and adopting a good backup strategy - that's the best defense, since hard drives do fail, and other things go wrong, as well...

    You can e-mail them one by one to yourself. The pics on the iphone are optimized for viewing on iphone and are therefore small and not nearly as detailed as the original.

    Important data - music, photos, etc, should be backed up - i.e disk, external drive, thumb drive,etc.

    The iphone is not a storage device.

    Emailing further drops the resolution to 800x600.

    If you have a PC with vista, you can connect the iPhone to the computer. Then go to Start, then Computer and then you find the iphone at the bottom of the window showing your hard drive, other externals, etc. Click on the phone icon, and keep clicking through the DCIM folder under you get to a folder with your photos on it. Then copy then to any folder on your computer. It's just like using a card reader for a camera or a flash drive.

    Deb37, the poster is talking about photos transferred +from the computer to the iPhone+. What you suggest only applies to photos _taken on_ the iPhone with the iPhone's camera (i.e. pics in the Camera Roll in the Photos section, but none of the other pics).

    Hey, I have the same problem with a Mac running Leopard. I'd like to salvage what I can from the iPhone. Pics were in iPhoto, synced to iPhone. Shortly afterward, HD crashed and I lost everything since last backup, including some photos I'd like back. Any suggestions?
