try this...

Hold both home and power button down till phone shuts off.
Release power button and while still holding home plug into computer and continue to hold home until connect to iTunes picture apears.
Release home button and start again fresh.

Btw.. When u go to set up the iPhone in iTunes set it up as if it were a new phone. Aka make a new partnership.

if you click check for updates and u already have 1.1.4 downloaded then nothing will happen.

Ok this isn't much help but its a start.
do a serch on the forum for error 1603
go down to the thread that says non techi frozen phone. This is the best direction I can point u in until I can find out more about the error that u are getting. Hope this helps. don't give up, I'm gone keep looking.

you can push the button. Go right ahead. Its not gone hurt anything. If u push it its gone want to download 1.1.4 is about all it will do.
