    you must be a beginner iphone user, when you receive an iphone the first thing you must do in order for it to work is plug it in itunes and activate it.. so do that and you will be ok

    strange. try hold the home button and on/off one for 10 seconds then let go. it should reset the phone. but also hopefully will make itunes recognised that you plugged it in. or try another usb port or other pc/mac if that does not work. it should recognise it when you plug it in and ask you to activate it

    ok try put it in DFU mode then plug into the pc... hold home and on/off for 10 seconds after 10 seconds let go of the on/off and keep holding home until you see the usb cable telling you to plug into the pc then it will let you restore.. well hopefully it will let you restore then activate..

    but before you do any of this make sure there is no iphone tab when you plug into itunes. maybe your not seeing it on the left side?
