2 Ways to Recover Lost iPhone Photos

Friday, October 14th, 2011

You enjoy taking pictures using your iPhone’s camera and you keep the pictures stored in your phone. There will be times that you might accidentally delete photos or someone who played with your phone unknowingly deleted some important photos. If this happens and you want to retrieve your photos, there are two things that you can do: use a software that retrieve files or you can restore your iPhone from the most recent backup that you performed.

We normally panic when we delete files from our phones without meaning to do so but don’t panic yet, there is hope if we act on it the right way. iPhones use the same storing process like computer hard drives do, therefore deleted files are not permanently removed from the drive for a certain time. The space your file filled will remain there until it is replaced with another file.

Remember to act right away in retrieving your photos before the hard drive fills the space where the deleted file was. Avoid using your phone and saving files before you are done retrieving your photos.

Restore from last iTunes backup – Once you are aware that photos were deleted on your iPhone, restore your phone to the latest iTunes backup that you did. This is also why doing a regular backup on your iDevices are a must. Once you are done, your photos should be there where you left them. However, if you never performed a backup or the last time you did it was several months ago, you will need a software to help you retrieve the pictures.

Retrieve files using Software – There are two softwares that you can choose from, although there are several other softwares, these two are among the popular searches: iPhone Photo Recovery and Stellar Photo Recovery. Both softwares require a PC or Mac computer. Download your choice of software and install it on your computer. After completing installation, connect your iPhone and the software should detect your phone right away. Just follow instructions carefully and you should be able to recover lost iPhone pictures.

Once you recover your lost pictures, get the habit of backing your iPhone on iTunes to make recovery an easier task just in case you lose important data on your phone again. If you have time, you can also sign up for free cloud services like DropBox where you can store your files wirelessly and access them anytime you need your files.

7 Easy Steps to a Free and Customized iPhone Ringtone

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Now that you have an iPhone all you want to do is customize every bit about it to have a more personal feel. You add wallpapers, get a case in your favorite color, and even make your favorite song as your ringtone. Since you already saved up on getting an iPhone new case, you shouldn’t be spending on ringtones when you can get some for free.

Originally, you can buy ringtones on iTunes but that’s paying twice for one song; one for your music library, one as your ringtone. You can save up on customizing your songs by cutting the tracks and saving them on your iTunes. There are simple steps you need to follow in order to successfully add clips on your iPhone to work as your ringtone.

Some things you need to know and have before you can start the process of getting a customized ringtone. First is that you need a PC or Mac, and iTunes. Then you have to make sure that the song you are using is non-DRM, which means that it’s not protected by copyrights. Songs from iTunes are examples of DRM protected songs. Once you have what you need, you may begin the process.

1.       Open your iTunes and locate the song you want as ringtone. Listen to the song and list down the time frame you want as ringtone. Note that you can only choose 40 seconds from the track.

2.       When you have your time frame, right-click on the song and “Get Info”. A new window while popup, click “Options” tab. Fill the “Start Time” and “End Time” with the time frame that you listed down and follow the minutes:seconds format. Click on “OK” when you’re done.

3.       Right click on the song again and choose “Convert Selection to AAC”. iTunes will convert the song to this format and will create a duplicate version.

4.       Right click on the ringtone and choose “Delete” then “Keep Files”.

5.       Now you have to look for the file on your folder, it should be on Music  > iTunes > and under the band’s name.

6.       The file extension should be m4a and you must change this to m4r by renaming the file. You will then receive a warning message, choose “Use .m4r”.

7.       After renaming the file, double-click on the ringtone to launch it on iTunes. This will automatically put the file on your ringtones folder and you can now connect and sync your iPhone to get your ringtone.

Now you can have as many ringtones without having to shell out some hard earned cash.
