My sister tried too many passcodes on my iPhone while I was having surgery and when I got it back it was requesting to be connected to iTunes. When connected it prompted me to restore the iPhone to a backup from a couple days ago. However, my laptop battery died during the restore. When I connected it later I no longer get the prompt to restore it.

Is there anyway to recover all my lost contacts etc.??

It stands for Device Firmware Update. It's a last resort if restoring your phone doesn't work. It basically shuts down the entire phone apart form the functions it needs to rewrite the firmware. It's also needed for jailbreaking purposes...
