So, the wife dropped her 3GS today (for the 3rd time) and it looks like she finally killed it.
She said it got really hot and the battery went from 95% to dead in about an hour.
Of course, she hasn't sync'd it in months either. She really just needs her calendar and pictures from it

It is not currently Jail Broken and has the last release of software. Not the most current.

I am able to get it into recovery mode, but don't want to restore (if it will even let me) until I know if I can get her data from it.

Any help is appreciated.
