    Yes restoring is the only solution,but should be careful if is unlocked or jailbroken to restore it only using a custom restore, so will not update the baseband

    If your iphone was syncronized with Itunes will be able recover al syncronized data.also,each time your iphone is syncronized first it makes a backup,can restore from one of those backups.when your iphone is connected, in itunes right click on the iphone name and you will see the option to restore from backup
