    Recover iPhone Data

    Hi all,

    A friend has an iPhone with a completely broken screen and wants to recover the data from it. The laptop that it was originally synced with is long gone and syncing with a new one will wipe all of the data. Is there any software that I can use, either Mac or PC, that will allow me to recover all of the data?

    Pictures should be fairly easy but the phone was locked with a pass code and most image retrieving applications do require this to be entered on the phone before getting any data off. After this it is more SMS/Contacts/etc that she wants.

    Any tips?

    Thanks

    @SC-UK:

    This might be a step in the right direction:How to Recover iPod and iPhone Data | eHow.com

    And this also: iExplorer - Formerly iPhone Explorer, is an iPhone browser for Mac and PC

    Let me know how you get on

    The Macroplant Link (iExplorer) works well, however when I had to recover some bits from my own, I found I had to buy Phone to Mac - Formerly Pod to Mac, iPod, iPad, iPhone Music Transfer Software (also available as Phone to PC - Formerly Pod to PC, iPod, iPad, iPhone Transfer to iTunes Software) to get it back in any sensible format ..

    The iExplorer lets you see raw data on your phone / ipod etc, but as such stuff as music is stored differently, you may struggle to make sense of it all.
