    Default Accidental restore
    I apologize if this is in the wrong section. A friend of mine who has an UNJAILBROKEN 3GS accidentally restored her phone to a previous 3.1.3 backup. She says she just updated to 3.1.3, but I explained to her that this wasn't possible for her to do(normally), since 4.0 is out and Apple no longer digitally signs the old firmware. In any case, she says she hasn't updated or synced in about 6 months and after the "update", she lost all of her recent contacts, sms, etc. Is there any way to retrieve any of this, for her?

    Not really. Just inform her to use google sync next time or get a mobile me account. Both of those options sync all changes to your iphones contact lists with the master lists for the respective accounts.
