I had a notification stating a update of iOS 6.1.1 was available. I started to install the software OTA. after about 10mins, my phone turned off, and when turned back on, showed a picture of a cable and the word iTunes.


I plugged it up to my computer which told me it was in recovery mode. its reinstalled the new software but I've lost everything. Photos, Videos, Apps, notes, Music, Messages.


I back it up regularly, but when i tried to restore the backed up file, Ive still lost a 80% of my photos, no videos have been readded, and all my Apps I have had to redownload from the App Store.


Needless to say, it's things like this that make me really wish I had re-upgraded to an Android!


Has anyone else experienced this issue with this update?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.1
