Hello and welcome to justanswer, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you today,

I'm sorry about the issue, Usually when the iPhone is restored. It makes a backup but it is possible the data are in the backup, Please Connect your iPhone and open iTunes, right click the iPhone icon in the devices list and select 'Restore from Backup'.

Try that please and Let me know The results.

Thank you

when i press "restore from backup" it says i have to turn off find my iphone to do that i have to login to my apple id. i keep using my apple id and it keeps saying it is not verified. i am positive i am entering the correct one. when i got his phone i changed my apple id password. does that mean that even if i find an old password ***** my apple id that it will not have the information that it seems to have deleted?
Expert:  Mr.Med replied 1 year ago.

It has nothing to do with your passwords, you need to verify your apple account so you can backup your data, please check your email and there should be a message from Apple with instructions to activate and verify your account.

You can also use this program to backup your data, please click here for more instructions

Hope this help

Thank you
