"I just got back from NYC and I took over 300 photos with my iPhone 4S. My phone had no service and the guy at the phone place upgraded my iPhone to iOS 6 to see if this would solve the issue. I wasn't aware that he would be doing this, so when I got my phone back all the pics/videos everything was gone. Any suggestions on how I can restore photos after iOS 6 upgrade?"
