Kelly, A complaint I often hear from iOS users with kids is that photos get deleted accidentally. Is there a clever data recovery hack that you can share?

re: 10 Hidden iPhone Tips, Tricks
Hi Lorna,
I've done some research on the topic, as I have mistakenly deleted pictures myself. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to recover them once they're gone - if there is, I still hope to find it! I recommend regularly backing up photos onto iTunes or iCloud. It's comforting to know that if my phone breaks or I happen to erase photos, there are copies of them stored elsewhere.

re: 10 Hidden iPhone Tips, Tricks
Set up a Gmail account and a Yahoo mail account and mail the photos from
Gmail to your Yahoo address. Then, if you ever loose them on your
phone, you can retrieve them in TWO locations, either your Yahoo inbox, or the Gmail "sent mail" folder.
Of course, this won't work once the photos are deleted ... only as a preventative measure. But it's a cheap alternative to a payment based cloud backup service ... both Gmail and Yahoo mail are free to setup and use. :-)

You can use iOS Recovery App from Stellar Phoenix and recover accidentally deleted or lost photos, mp3 files, contacts, chat and call history, calendar records etc.

The company EaseUS has a recover application, MobiSaver, for photos, videos and reminders/Notes. http://www.easeus.com/mobisave..., basic version is free.

That might help ;-)

Great List! While I haven't seen any studies on the topic, I would be surprised if #5, flash message alerts, hasn't yet induced a seizure. It's like a surprise camera flash!
