      Im trying to Restore my iphone. Presently, it is showing on the screen a USB cable connection and the itunes icon. I tried to follow the precedures listed below: Disconnect your iPhone from your Mac or Windows computer.
      Press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons simultaneously for about 20-30 seconds, until you see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in the middle accompanied by the text "Please Connect to iTunes."
      Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes if it does not automatically launch.
      You should see the below image

      After this you can restore your iPhone by clicking the Restore button under the Summary tab. Hopefully you don't have to use this iPhone tip, but in case you get in this situation, you now know to get out of it.

      But is it not working. I cannot see the Logo memtioned. However, when I lanch itunes,,,It is asking me to Activate the phone with AT&T. Why cant I do the Restore. Where is the Summmary menu?

      02.28.00.

      This total off topic i would just like to say that i found out if you have firmware 2.2.1 or later to get into the recovery mode your computer has to actually be connected to your Iphone otherwise it wont work.

      Just thought I would spare ppl some trouble of finding out the hard way as i did
      thx
