Once iPhone stuck in Recovery mode, you invariably have to Restore. Regarding your iPhone Data Recovery Google: "How to extract data from iPhone in recovery mode". May land up on some utility. Free or paid Good Luck PS: Genius bar will not help you in personal data recovery in any manner. Moral: Always backup your data periodically.

My iPhone stuck on recovery mode after iOS update so i searched google for help. To my surprise, i got a free tool to enter and exit iPhone recovery mode without holding home or power button, you just need to click the button on the main interface to choose to put iPhone into or out of recovery mode with one click. Totally free download is available here on CNET: http://download.cnet.com/ReiBoot/3000-18553_4-76037571.html
