Your phone is probably booting into iOS but the update is corrupted. Try to make the device enter DFU mode forcefully rather than allow it to enter Recovery mode.

You will have to Restore the phone, and use a backup to retrieve your data.

Loyer16, it's unfortunate to hear that you are going through this. I would be devastated to lose all of my information. Lets work on getting it back.


Is your phone allowing you into the home screen at all? If you log into your iCloud account is all of your information there?
