I had to restore my iphone and now it wont sync or anything. My iphone is currently stuck on a black screen with the apple logo and a loading icon.
How can I fix this? I can't turn my iphone off either.

    ok plug the iPhone into your computer and open up iTunes hold the sleep/wake button and the home button until the iPhone restarts once it restarts it should be in recover mode and a message will appear in itunes saying "a iPhone has been detected in recovery mode" then re-restore it

    Hey Matt,

    Try resetting the iPhone.

    If it still does not startup correctly after the reset try putting the iPhone into recovery mode, then restoring.
