I have exactly the same problem. Tried to reset my iPhone 3g, choosing the option to delete all the data and media, but now the phone is stuck on a screen with the apple symbol and the timer. It's as if this option actually removes the entire operating system. Any help would be much appreciated.
Cheers,Windows 7, iPhone OS 3.0
Currently Being ModeratedSep 3, 2010 6:00 AM (in response to Ravaan)See if you can force the phone into recovery mode:
Leave the USB cable connected to your computer, but NOT your phone, itunes running, press & hold the home button while connecting the USB cable to your dock connector, continue holding the home button until you see “Connect to iTunes” on the screen. You may now release the home button. iTunes should now display that it has detected your phone in recovery mode, if not quit and reopen iTunes. If you still don’t see the recovery message repeat these steps again. iTunes will give you the option to restore from a backup or set up as new. In your case, select"new".MacBook Pro
