    I had the same problem.

    This is what you need to do.

    Do as what wjosten has said in the previous thread.

    When the iphone goes blank... this is what you need to do.

     

    1.  Unhook your iphone

    2.  Plug your iphone into a wall charger --> this will bring up the apple logo

    3.  Unplug from the wall charger

    4.  Wait until the Apple logo goes away (not sure if this is necessary..but this is what I did)

    5.  Reconnect to your computer.

    6.  It will ask the same question about how you need to "restore"... just say yes...since iTunes is already downloading, it won't do much.

    7. You may have to repeat steps 2-6 if the screen goes blank before the update is fully downloaded.

    8. When the update software is full downloaded, just click update...

    9.. The rest...you just click away...

    My friend showed up at my door this afternoon and handed me her phone with the apple logo frozen on the screen.  She couldn't do anything and didn't know what to do.  So what else do I do but google it.  We tried everything we could find - including everything in this post.  Nothing worked.  We finally got it to connect to itunes but the only option was to restore it to the factory settings, but she had never backed up her information and didn't really want to lose all of her contacts and some 600 photos and videos.  But nothing else was working and without apple care, she would have to go buy a brand new phone (or they would reset it) and she would still lose the info.  In a last ditch resort before restoring it, we wondered if her sim card would work in my old iPhone 3.  (Not understanding what all the sim card does, we gave it a shot.)  We pulled her sim card out and while I was trying it in my phone, within just a couple of minutes her phone lit up with a message saying "no sim card inserted" and in the background was her regular screen.  I put the sim card back in and everything had reset itself and was back to normal!  Not sure why this worked, or if it would work for anyone else, but if nothing else works, give it a try!

    Thanks for mentioning the 30 seconds! I was about to give up until I tried that and now restoring. I had even taking my 3G into the Apple store and was told to junk it, possible water damage.

    Try a Reset... press the home and sleep/lock buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.  You may need to hold the buttons for as long as a minute.
