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?

putting it in dfu mode will make itunes recognise the iphone and only give you the option to restore. you only do this if your phone is stuck and nothing else will work. kind of like a last resort if you have problems

np:) it was also used while jailbreaking in earlier firmwares while using tools like pwnage tool or quickpwn or winpwn or redsn0w any of these tools puts the phone in dfu mode. i wonder when dev team will release a tool
