Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Every time I try to restore my iphone error 1611 comes up
Try restoring in DFU mode, which is different than recovery mode. I happened to stumble across it while trying to restore an iPhone 3G that a user unplugged in the middle of the 3.1 update. It kept showing an error of 1611 or 13 and wouldn't restore in recovery mode. I found this DFU mode option and the restore worked fine. The DFU mode keeps the iPhone OS from loading, so you don't run into as many compatibility problems. Go into DFU mode, then try restoring the phone and see if that works.
To enter DFU mode:
1. Connect your iPhone to your computer
2 . Turn iPhone off. You may have to hold the power and home buttons down together to force the phone off
3. Once the phone is off, hold the power and home buttons together for 10 seconds exactly
4. After 10 seconds, release the power button but keep holding home until the computer recognizes that a USB device was plugged in
5. iTunes should detect your iPhone correctly, and also allow you to restore to the factory default settings

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.
If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures on my tip (link below):

SOURCE: my iphone wont restore error
Try restoring from DFU mode. To enter DFU, shut down the phone and connect it to the computer. Then hold the power button for 3 seconds. Without releasing the power button, hold down the home button for 10 seconds. Then release the power button but keep holding home until iTunes recognizes the device in recovery mode. If you did it right, the screen should be black. Then just click restore. This should help, but if it also doesn't work you may have a hardware issue. In that case, you should take it in to Apple for repairs. Good luck!
