    Power the phone off by holding the home and sleep button for a few seconds, then power it back on.

    It does turn off and on, right?

    You're saying it ONLY turns on in that mode?

    dont' stress it...restoring is a normal occurrance for most iphone modd'rs. just roll with it and have comfort in the fact that your actual phone data (contacts, activation, songs, etc) are all secure in itunes. the mods can be (re)done easily...no biggie man.

    oh, and before you dive back into another restore, what were you doing when it asked you to restore? that is a part of the normal (old) jailbreak process and could be "normal"...

    contacts are saved as long as you have the syncing setup for the info tab in itunes (when you have your phone connected).

    what all are you trying to do with the phone? I would start with apptapp installer (google it) if you are on a mac or iBrickr if you're using that other OS (pretty sure you're on OS X though).

    Let's continue this on your other thread. in the future, it would be good to try to capture issues in a single thread (minimizes the number of threads we have to check to fix a single person's situation )
