Is it gone for good?

My best friend got the new iPhone 4 in early August, but never synced it. When she finally synced her phone last week, she mistakenly told iTunes to Restore from back-up (the July back-up). Is there anyway to get her data back?

No idea why she waited so long to sync her phone to her Mac; the AT&T store people set up her phone initially for her. This was all just days before her son was born. She's been taking pictures and video of her new son everyday, but now it's all gone.
Her husband's convinced that if she jailbreaks the phone, she can get to the data. The Apple people told her that the pictures and video were gone for good. Google searches reveal companies that will get your data back for a cost. Will anything work?
I feel partly responsible for the loss because I urged her to upgrade her iOS, so i could do facetime with her on my new iPad. Please let there be some way to fix this!
