Unfortunately, unless you had them backed up and stored elsewhere (like on the SD card or your computer), they most likely aren't retrievable.

Are you sure the phone is completely dead?  Have you tried holding the power and volume down buttons simultaneously for 15-20 seconds to see if that will reboot the phone?
