Press and hold the power and home button.....continue holding after the device powers on and until you see it resetting. at this point release the power button and continue to hold the home key....after the device has finished, you may try the restore again....more than likely the file you are trying to restore it with is corrupted..........if your device is not working now, then it should after the reset sequence....
Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it. Reset To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears. If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears
More resets: Try This: 1. Remove Sim Card 2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears 3. Replace Sim Card 4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.
Also, Try this: 1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G. 2.) Start up iTunes 3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G 4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable 5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset. 6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.
turn the iPhone off, connect the cable to the computer, but do not connect to the iphone. Hold the home button and connect the iPhone to the computer. iTunes will recognize it in recovery mode. (You must have ipsw file) Hold shift and click restore. now look for the ipsw file, choose that file, and itunes will do the rest.
Where did you purchase your phone? however, you first need to update itunes to 8.0.2, that might solve your problem. Unless you have an unlocked phone then restoring your phone is useless because when you restore an iphone with itunes in the US without an att sim card it will actually lock the phone, but I do not think that is your issue. the two things you are seeing the connect to itunes and the emergency call system means that your phone is not properly activated. which is done by connecting it to itunes.
The only thing I can think, is that you got hold of a bad package cause my iphone edge did the same thing. When restoring make sure to let iTunes download the firmware so that you dont get an uncompatable version of firmware and get a head splitting head ache like i did, i downloaded the 3G firmware off the net only to relized almost three hours later that that version of the 3.0 firmware cant be loaded on the edge.
I just had this problem and it turned out to be... It didn't like my iPod cable. Switched to the iPhone cable and it worked. Seems to be an iPhone 2.0 prob, or 3g prob, since I was using the iPod cable to sync my old iPhone just fine.
