Hi I am Ashik. I think i can help you

Does your iPhone in unlocked or jailbroken ?

Did you synced your iPhone on your PC before updatig (atleast once) ?

My laptop said it was in recovery mode and could not continue and that I should restore in order to continue. When I tried to restore it came up with unknown error (13). I tried many times and attempted to restore as in structed. Finally it did and then all of my apps and ringtones, music, etc was gone. What can I do to get them back?

It could not sync without the restore function first, sorry
Bad News ! You can't recover the songs,applications etc if you didn't synced atleast once on iTunes. If you sync your iPhone with iTunes, iTunes will create automatic backup of your iPhone's applications, mails, contacts, songs etc. Since you didn't synced it, you can't recover them.

Good News ! If you purchased any item from iTunes Store, just fill this form and send it to Apple. Apple will allow you to re-download anything that you purchased from iTunes Store for one time.

Let me know if you have any questions...
