    From what I can find there is still not undelete for Android, however, the good news is you may still be able to get them back if you stored them on the sd card partition and haven't overwritten the file locations.

    The sd partition on Galaxy S phones is formatted FAT 32 and is the default location for photos saved from the camera, so you may be able to mount the partition as a removable drive and run a file recovery program like Recuva from your PC.

    Make sure you mount your phone in mass strorage mode and not kies or debugging mode.

    If Recuva doesn't work, try Photorec.

    Good luck!

    I attached my phone, but it does not show up under my computer... It doesn't recognize my phone.
