hard drive dead, phone locked up- hopeless?
My original (i.e., not 3G) iPhone is synced to a now-defunct hard drive. I've been planning on getting a new computer soon. My phone has been really wonky, tons of app crashes and lock-ups, and today it won't even reboot. I've got what looks like the restore screen, where it just keeps showing me the USB connecting to iTunes.
The problem is that my ENTIRE LIFE is on that phone! I am thinking of syncing it to another computer, but then it will be completely cleared off, right? I have a friend who was going to try to figure out the hard drive for me, but that would take him at least a couple days, and OH YEAH, I don't have his number anymore because its in my phone.
I'm about to take a long walk off a short pier here. What should I do???
