Welcome to iPhoneForums, hisamu27!

The iTunes logo shows that you have to use recovery mode to restore your iPhone. You'll find the instructions here:
If you can t update or restore your iPhone iPad or iPod touch - Apple Support

Error 1 indicates that there might be problems with your hardware that stop the update from completing. Make sure your security software allows communication between your device and Apple Servers.

Hope that helps.

I updated the phone to IOS 8.3. Really happy and excited
But, still i can't use my phone..
I have problem with activation.
I don't know who was using this phone and it is asking for apple ID and password which i don't have.. Is there any way to bypass this?
Please if u could help

Sorry, there's no way to bypass iCloud's activation lock. If you don't know the owner of that email address, and ask him to remove this iPhone from Find my iPhone, you'll not be able to use it.

Here are the instructions:
iCloud Remove your device from Find My iPhone

Again, you're not the one who can disable activation lock. That has to be done by the person with that email address.

All iPhones with IOS 8 and further require activation with an Apple ID and password. The is no way around this.

As told before:
The former owner of the iPhone has to remove it from Find my iCloud. You'll not be able to use it otherwise. Sorry!

That's why it's important to choose questions that only the owner knows the answer to, and that they can easily remember.
