Hi guys i have problems with my iphone 4S after restoring and updating to new IOS 7
Here is goes:
I have never sync my iphone to the itunes before.
So yesterday i decided to update my iphone to IOS 7 using my Macbook laptop
However the update was unsuccessful as the itunes prompt me an error
I tried many times but still unsuccessful and i was stuck at the recovery mode
So i then move to my windows laptop and update using the itunes
During the update there is no options given to backup my contents
So i procced for the update and it was successful.
Now that my iphone running new ios 7 i choose to set up as new iphone.
Later then i found out that all my content including photos and contacts are all gone.
So my questions is:
Is there anyway that i can get my contacts and photos back given that i never backed up my
iphone to itunes?
Thank you for your time guys and i hope someone can help me to solve this problem. =)

You can open iTunes with ya phone plugged in and see maybe under photos tab you have something it saved and for contacts sane thing can't remember the tab thou and hit apply after ya check both boxes.
iCloud does save ya contacts also and phot stream photos.

Since you haven't sync iPhone with iTunes, the only way you want to restore files lost on iOS 7 update is using a third-party tool. I have tried Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery software which works well on iOS 7 data recovery. Go to any-data-recovery.com and have a try.

Hm, unfortunately, if you did not back up the iPhone and moreover, if you didn't sync (ever) with iTunes, there is very little chance that you can ever recover the lost contacts/photos data after the upgrade... Edit: quick guide on how to backup iPhone data before upgrading to iOS7.
