Not entirely sure how flash-based memory works, but I guess it's kind of the same way as a hard drive (maybe not). But you might be able to recover bits of information, because when you reset or delete something, it is really never gone, it just tell the device the space is empty, please write over it. Do a search for iphone data recovery and see what you get.

FileSavage and see how that works. If the data was really important it will be worth the try.
UPDATE: To clarify, resetting doesn't overwrite anything. All your old files just become "invisible" to the OS. So long as you haven't put a ton of data on it, it should be recoverable.
