           The Phone is now restoring, looked everywhere for an answer, tried the holding down of the home/standby

            buttons, started the recovery ,extracted the software, then it would say "the  iphone iphone could not be                restored .The device could not be found" done this about 4 times


           The solution!!!  gave it to a friend who put it on his PC (I have an Imac) and he reset it, then plugged back            into Mac and it restored it back to the last restore


           one point i did notice you have to take your pin off, it said something like insert pin free sim



           Hope this helps somebody

    Reboot both the iPhone and the computer and try it again, it worked for me.
