I'm posting this because I couldn't find the iPhone file recovery information succinctly produced in any corner of the web and I wanted people who had the same problem to have a place to go to find answers.
Here's the scenario. You tried to sync the iPhone with an iMac laptop, but somehow for an unknown reason, all the data from the iPhone got wiped out.
What if it hasn't? What if there's precious data on there like pictures of your girlfriend and you took and loves dearly that she never backed up off the phone for whatever reason?
If you search the web for "recover data from iPhone” or whatever you're going to get back a pile of results that basically say stuff like "take it to the Apple Store and let a Genius look at it". When you do that, they'll tell you you're hosed, but of course they'll be cool about it and you'll have the opportunity to buy some stuff while you wait in line to talk to them.
Or, you can also call a data recovery service. They can bust open your iPhone and try to extract the media from its memory for the low price of ~$800+. Actually, that's not going to be an option for almost anyone.
As a matter of fact, this problem has been solved nowadays.
