If you have ever set up your phone to sync with itunes (to add music etc.) then as part of the process you may already have a backup of your photos on your computer. Depending on the OS it will be in the Appdata/Application Data folder under your username, if you need the exact location then post back with your OS details for more info. The files in the backup are, unfortunately, not tagged as anything but you can sort by size and then just add .jpg to possible looking ones to get them back.

This is why I hate the iPhones. They aren't SD compatible, so when the device takes a dump on you it's really tough to get the data off. All your data is stored on integrated memory, so you have no choice but to go to Apple because you need proprietary tools to get it off. Just another way for Apple to make some money. GOTTA LOVE APPLE!!!!

Sorry for the anger, but it really pisses me off that Apple corners their customers all the time to spend top dollar to fix their devices because they make everything proprietary. I'm sorry for what happened, but I would suggest that you get an Android as a replacement.

Apple expects you to do regular backup of your iDevices, as you should do regularly with any storage device.

It doesn't matter if it's a phone, tablet, flash drive, internal or external hard drive. EVERYTHING is eventually going to go bad.

All important files, wherever they are stored, need a backup copy. Files of particular importance need 2 or more backup copies. This is of particular importance for portable devices that are just too easily lost, damaged, or stolen. Data recovery is always hit or miss.
