I plugged in my iPhone 5 to my computer for the first time and I chose to restore it with the information from my iPod touch, but I lost the pictures that I had on the iPhone. I wanted to know if there was anyway to get those back?

Nope. You erased what was on your iPhone by restoring it. – Matthieu Riegler Jan 1 '13 at 22:28
Okay thank you! – Samantha Iannucci Jan 1 '13 at 22:31
Did you enable Photostream previously on your iPhone? – bassplayer7 Jan 1 '13 at 22:58
