I upgraded to 6.1, I accidentally restored as a new iphone, so I lost everything from that computer. Then I tried another one which I used more often. However, what I got back is just music but contacts, notes, pictures and others are gone.
Anybody knows about this issue?
I do appreciate for your help!

If your iTunes backed up your iPhone4/4S before it synced all our data on to it then you should be able to restore iPhone from that backup.

Plug iPhone back into your iTunes then right click it from the left hand menu and choose restore from backup. You will get an option asking which backup you wish to choose. Unfortunately now that your iPhone will have the same name as yours, there is no easy way to tell which backup is which unless you can remember the rough time/date he synced phone.
Refer to the tutorial about how to recover deleted contacts from iPhone.
