I just updated my iPhone, (I formatted my pc about a month ago, and reinstalling everything, including itunes, which I updated it before I updated iPhone).
While iTunes was downloading the latest version, it mentioned that I need to back it up or the data will get lost.(I know the release was a while ago...I'd been afraid to update for data loss, but had to cause the phone was tripping several times a day). Anyway, what do you know, everything on my iPhone is gone, apps, email settings, contacts, etc, back to factory setting, and not the previous setting with just the update software.
How do I recover this? I've tried placing backed up data to see if I can recover, but I have been unable to do it.
