    Default Iphone data Recovery?
    I have a 3g that I dropped in the toilet. Sucks, I know. I did my best to dry it out and it worked for a while, but is now unable to make or receive calls. The lock screen displays a message "RESTORE NEEDED iphone cannot make or receive calls. Restore from itunes." the background looks like it should be in recovery mode, but when you slide to make a call it goes to the emergency keypad AND my previous wallpaper reappears. I plugged the iphone into my computer and was able to extract all photos successfully so I know that the data is still intact on the phone.

    Now the tricky part...

    I am trying to figure out a way to recover some video files I have on the phone that were recorded with cycorder. I tried to access the phone via SSH but failed. I am wondering if there is another way to access the files on the phone to recover them. I cannot make or receive calls and have no wifi. Any ideas....

    Try a USB utility like PhoneView (Mac) or DiskAid (Mac & PC).
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
