You have to unbrick your iphone. Then follow the steps that i show you after you watch this video that shows you how to unbrick your iphone

Then after that go to:
Settings
general
reset
Erase all content and settings.
Now sync your iphone with your latest backup.
Please try this, I bet it will work.
Respond to this thread if you have any Questions.

Their phone isnt bricked. You do not even know the meaning of 'bricked'. Bricked means the phone will never again work unless it is physically rebuilt.

Buddy, if the iphone is cannot be activated it is basically bricked BECAUSE IT IS NOT USEABLE. And if the phone is showing the connect to itunes screen it is bricked BECAUSE IT IS NOT USEABLE. I'm not trying to be mean but you think your the genius with iphones and all that crap. You have to much hubris. And i did this and my iphone works like the day i bought it so just try what i instructed.

Dont be rude. Bricked means it will never work until it is PHYSICALLY rebuilt.

That high and mighty attitude will not get you far on this forum. Everyone here is nice and we all help each other out. So please, if you are going to be like that then don't post. This is a family website.

And to the OP, did you actually physically damage it? Or is iTunes just saying that? Has it worked in iTunes before? I would try putting it into DFU mode and restore the phone. Google DFU mode if you don't know what it is. And if that doesn't work, I'd take it to the apple store and see if they can help you out. If the phone is less than a year old they might replace it with a new one if they can't fix it.
