DriveSavers iPhone service

DriveSavers unveiled an iPhone recovery service at Macworld Expo in January, offering users the opportunity to save essential data from a malfunctioning iPhone that was not backed up. The service is able to recover pictures and critical data, once all other possible recovery alternatives have been exhausted. DriveSavers advertises a five to seven day turnaround for the recovery service, and costs anywhere from $500 to $1400, depending on the quality of the recovery.

In the event that DriveSavers cannot save any data, a $100 attempt fee is charged.

In an interview with MacNN, senior data recovery engineer John Christopher told MacNN that so far, DriveSavers has been successful with the service. He highlighted a recovery he performed, saying an iPhone dropped 27 floors down an apartment garbage chute in New York. Despite the massive damage the device incurred, a complete recovery was made.

    I'm surprised the guy who dropped it 27 stories down the garbage chute didn't figure out a way to sue Apple over it.
