Do I have to give my ex boyfriend his phone back? Posted on August 05, 2011

I have an ex boyfriend who had me use his second iphone on a second line so that we could stay in touch. Now that we have broken up he has asked for the phone back, even though for months he insisted he wanted me to keep it, and I have this in writing. I don't care about keeping the phone, but since he crashed my computer all of my photos from 8 years on exist only on "his" iphone, and if I give it back I will lose all access to them forever. I don't want to lose my photo history and do not want to give the phone back until I find a way to restore my computer, it this is at all possible. Do I have a legal obligation to give him the phone back immediately?
