How do I recover data? My phone flashed an error code something about couldn't verify a code then gave me the only option - to reset. I crossed my fingers I wouldn't lose everything and hit reset. It reset itself to 1 year ago and deleted all recent texts and contacts. No pictures survived but some - up to Jan - were on my Amazon photos. How can I recover my stuff and ensure this doesn't happen again? This happened about a year ago and I thought the T-Mobile guy had set my phone up to automatically back up, but apparently not.
