Hi All, I have an unlocked iPhone 3g and have destroyed all my computer (iTunes) data. Is there a way I can save my photos and other important data? I will be getting a new iPhone in the fall and have a new iCloud account but none of my old data is stored there.

Thank You

Which version of iOS is on your phone?

Is it a 3G or a 3GS ?

iCloud backup can only be used with iOS 5 and above, that's why you're not seeing anything there.

You're going to need a tool like PhoneToMac, PhoneToPC or iExplorer or Senuti to copy your data back to your PC/Mac all depends on what data you need to recover
