Hey there, have you done a force reboot/reset?

Press and hold the lock button, and the home button for 10 seconds. See if that does anything?

faulty? can you try another usb cable?
#15
it would seem that the phones in DFU mode, put this into the forum link that i've posted and have a read there, this should help you fix your phone but don't worry it should be something simple. Do try to restart your pc/ laptop and your iphone then try to reset both again
#16
If you haven't jailbroken your phone then if it comes to it, you can easily take your phone to apple and have them fix it for you.

switch it off, take out the sim, leave it for 1 min and then put the sim back in and switch it on, see if this helps, if not, go into settings, switch on airplane mode then switch off airplane mode, this should reset it

try downloading ziphone on your pc, connect the phone and run ziphone goto the advanced features section and in the change mode section click on normal mode it should take your phone from recovery mode and reboot it into normal mode

hi.. will doing this make my warranty invalid do you know?

no it won't , ziphone was used to jailbreak but it can also be used to just change modes when they get stuck in recovery mode. as long as you don't jailbreak it the warranty will be intact

To be honest I wouldnt mess around with any unlocking stuff etc. I have had this on one of my phones, it is stuck on Connect to iTunes, I had to send it back. May I recommend Apple Service. Ring them up, they will send you a package next day, you send the phone off, you will have a new one within 2 days. They are awesome. Not worth messing about with to be honest!
