I'm a total newbie, just got my iphone 3G yesterday, I've read through all the troubleshooting but I still can't get itunes to recognize my iphone. Either nothing happens, like a device isn't hooked up, or it says that the "mobile device has not been activated" Hopefully this is a simple issue that I'm just overlooking, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Yeah dude... I get that same error and it makes me furious because the iPhone keeps resetting itself and connenting and disconnecting to the iTunes and popping that error out. The first gen iPhone did it. I thought if I got the 3g it wouldn't but it does it just as much, but faster.

    I wish Apple could do something about it.
