    hi

    i bought second hand iphone and connected it to pc and itunes started up and said need to restore phone. clicked on ok and message saying everything will be deleted and clicked on ok. started to do the restore and then got an error message, something along the lines of unknown error can't restore. after that phone don't switch on, doesn't do anything when plugged into charger and itunes not recongise when connected to pc. tried holding home button while connecting to pc nothing. would be grateful for any help or does anyone think that is not fixable as it not showing any signs of life.

    dfu mode is by pressing power and home key until phone switches off and you release power key but keep hold of home key. tried it but phone don't switch on so don't know when to release power key. tried various lengths of time but nothing. is there any other software to restore firmware apart from itunes ?

    can't remember exactly but think it was can't restore. unknown error and now can't connect to itunes because iphone is not showing any signs of life.
