First off...I was not jailbroken or unlocked.

I raced home to install the only to...poof...brick my iPhone. I get the "plug into iTunes" icon on the screen and can't get past there. iTunes gives a message that it my phone is in recovery mode and needs to be restored. It extracts the software begins to update, and then I get an error saying it complete. I've tried about 5 times to restore (even attempting the 1.1.2 software) but nothing...

HELP!

try rebooting the PC, changing the USB port, and connecting straight to the bottom of the iPhone without a dock
.

Thanks for the suggestion. Tried that, and again nothing...until the next try when it finally restored. Thanks again.

Yeah, iTunes has problems every once in a while with USB ports and the iPhone. 99% of the time, a reboot and port switch will take care of the problem, but every once in a while, it requires a re-install of either the USB port itself, or iTunes.
