Sounds like its stuck in DFU Mode

http://www.iphonealley.com/tips/save-your-iphone-with-recovery-mode


If iTunes doesn’t see your iPhone’s cry for help, you may need to invoke recovery mode. Although it’s an extremely helpful mode, how to get there isn’t very apparent. Read on for the how-to!
As arcane as “recovery mode” sounds, it’s actually very simple:
Disconnect your iPhone and turn it off by holding the “Sleep/Wake” button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there’s no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it’s off, press and hold the “Home” button and plug your iPhone into a Mac or PC with iTunes installed. Keep holding the “Home” button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. iPhones running older software will display a yellow triangle and text which says “Please Connect to iTunes”. Once you see this image, you can release the Home button.


Open iTunes (if it’s not already open) and you will be told that “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.” Click “OK” and you will be taken to the iPhone pane. Click “Restore” and you’re done, it’s that easy! Depending on the extent of your iPhone’s ills, it may take some time to do a full restore. Once you’re done, you should again have a perfectly working iPhone.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, you may need to restore using DFU (Direct Firmware Upgrade) mode. To enter this mode, plug in your iPhone and turn it off. Hold down the “Home” and “Sleep/Wake” buttons for about twelve seconds. You’ll briefly see the silver Apple logo and then your phone will appear to turn back off. Release the “Sleep/Wake” button but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see a message in iTunes stating that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Choose “Restore” and you should be fixed right up!
If this doesn’t fix your problem, your iPhone may require a visit to the Genius Bar

How do i transfer pictures to my computer


Depending on what type of phone you have, there are may different ways to transfer things from phone to computer and from computer to phone.
If you have an Android Phone, my favorite app is AirDroid. It lets you connect to your phone over wifi or over the internet through your web browser. It is free and easy to use.
If you have an iPhone, iTunes is fairly easy to use.
If you have an older phone that has bluetooth, you can get a bluetooth usb device to add bluetooth to your pc and send the pictures that way. This is a little more complicated but once you get it setup, it is fairly quick.

How do i transfer photos from my ps3 to my cell phone


IF YOU HAVE AN IPHONE AND ITUNE -- the easiest way that i can think of is for you to use a usb drive on your ps3 and save all the pictures you want on to it.
Connect the usb drive to your computer and bring the photos into your itunes
sync your iphone with the new pictures in your itunes and you should be done.
if you have one of the other smart phones on the market see if you can use yahoo messenger or some other texting app that supports sending pictures. Once you get the text messeging app on your phone get the photos into your pc like i describe above. now use yahoo messenger to send you a pic message to your phone. Some smart phones allow you to save the pictures onto your phones if thats not an option you could try taking pictures of each one of your photos thats on the ps3 with your phone

I have a Samsung Monte. Pressing *#0*# only helps us to use the front cam as a mirror n nothing else... Can't click photos wid the front camera. Plzzzz help


Hi,

The front camera in Monte is only useful for live chat on yahoo and skype and other such social networking sites when you are on 3G only.

Never heard about taking pics from the front camera. I am sure it is not used for taking pictures.

Take pictures from your main camera thats better.

Pls rate my suggestion.

Regards,

Richee

I was having trouble logging in to facebook so I decided to remove the\r\nfacebook app. When I removed the app my phone turned off and I have not been able to turn it back on. I have tried pushing the on...


It sounds like you are in recovery mode from what i know of jail-breaking itouches/iphones, this was probably caused by you holding the power button/front button for about 10 seconds i think it takes.
i would recommend that you connect your phone to itunes and recover your phone as it seems that youve done a royal job of messing it up.
to recover it should recognize that there is a device connected, it will prompt you to recover the device if problems are detected, make sure that your itunes is the latest version as well.
Good Luck!

Cant download apps application on phone


the iphone will sync your apps but you shoudn't need to restore it ever. unless you absolutely need to
if you are downloading apps from the itunes store, they will show in the upper most side menu on itunes.
plug your phone in and when it mounts, it comes to the summary, which shows the ipod picture.
in the upper part above the ipod picture you will see tabs, click on the apps tab and choose your settings. IE sync all apps etc.
Click apply and you iphone will sync your apps. it may take a few minutes because it backs up your phone also transferring the apps on the phone to your computer to sync.

My iphone say connect to itunes


Once you've activated with AT&T and you've connected it to your Mac/PC with iTunes 8, you should be ready to add music, movies, pics and more.
Using iTunes with an iPhone is just like using any other iPod with iTunes. When iTunes is open and you've connected your device to your computer, you should see an icon representing your iPod/iPhone in the list display on the left. Select your iPod/iPhone by clicking on it. Then all you'll need to do is click the tabs across the top of the main iTunes window and select the options you wish to use.
If you still have any difficulty, please feel free to contact me directly.

Installer


It is difficult for me to completely understand your problem. What version of firmware are you running? Do you have multi-pages enabled with Summerboard? If not, new apps you install will push other apps (like installer.app) off your main page.

To fix this quickly, you will need to ssh into your phone to change the plist data and move installer.app to the front of your list. Then, install summerboard to get multi pages enabled.

If you don't know what ssh is, then you'll need to:
restore your phone completely to 1.1.3 using itunes
download ziphone from http://www.ziphone.org/
run ziphone -j

now you'll be fixed.
