Im a little confused.. Iphone backups in iTunes for different phones are usually named separately. If he does have his backup on iTunes, then he should be able to just restore from it. If the backup has been overwritten, then perhaps you can go back in time to a previous System backup you hopefully performed. (Assuming you're doing regular backups). You may even be able to do it with a Time Machine backup, though I've never tried that.
Was he/she backing up the iphone to the computer via itunes? Or to Icloud?

Did he/she have a different icloud account?

If they backed up to iclould then he/she should be able to restore back.

On Itunes check to see when he/she iphone is plugged in where the backup set is kept.

Also check with the other iphone

Maybe he/she just need to point to the correct file.

If they backed up to iclould then he/she should be able to restore back.!!   they never did
Your posting doesn't make sense, sorry.

You say:

"Was he/she backing up the iphone to the computer via itunes?   YES but he overwrite data restoring iphone from previous back up that wasn't his. it was his brother backup they share same PC."

Your friend's backup onto the PC should have a different name from his brother's backup.

In iTunes, go into Edit/Preferences, and click on "Devices."
Under Device backups, aren't you seeing backups from two different devices?
Ok
How was the iphone being backed up? What settings are being used?

Do you have an Icloud account?
Connect the iphone to itunes and try to restore to a custom backup (you are supposed to find multiple backups)
hi thanks none of these post help at all, basically is there any way to recover anything from iphone after been factory reset
No, you can't recover anything from the phone.  That's why you have to recover from its backup on the PC or Mac, or from iCloud.
Are u 100% positive? No software at all?

Ok thans ki just have to reneter all contact again manually and I lost my pictures
Actually, most lost data from iphone, ipad or ipod would disappear forever, only if you have backup for them, and you can recover from that.
But I noticed that in some ios forums, others often recommend data recovery softwares. You can have a try, like this recover iphone.
