My iPhone was being really slow and had no service today, so I powered it off. When I tried to power it back on, instead of prompting me to put in my pass to unlock, it displays the USB cord that goes to your computer, pointing up to the word iTunes. I can't get past this at all, don't even know what it means. So I plugged it in to my computer and started up iTunes thinking maybe I needed a software update or something, and iTunes says it can't get in cause I need to put in my password. Problem is, my phone doesn't prompt for the password, it just displays the screen I described. Please any ideas on what is wrong????
i believe the screen you describe is a step of the restore mode. plug iphone to itunes to continue process to fix. you may have to do a restore as a new phone... in reference to the "Apple of Death" screen.
