    You can't format the iPhone from your computer. If you want to completely erase the memory and restore it to the factory default settings, go to Settings->General->Reset->Erase All Content and Settings. It will take between 1 and 2 hours but when it's done, you will have a completely erased iPhone.

    why wouldn't you just restore and set up as a new phone?

    You could do that, but restoring won't necessarily delete any data that apps have created in memory. Erasing all content will wipe any of that residual data out, which is what a format would do.

    Keep trying the dfu mode it is tricky and you have to get it just right. Remember hold the home for 5 seconds then power and home for 10 seconds then releas power and continue to hold home for 30 seconds until your of recognizes it (hopefully)

    Also rebooting your computer while the iPhone is in DFU mode and still connected via USB will make iTunes see your phone. Mark

    Hola. I have a 3g iPhn and recently updated it to the 3.1.3 version. Tried to downgrade it but was unable to do it. I understand this is because there's some restriction on the iPhn puy by Apple.

    Is it not like a flash card, the memory of the iPhn? Can I format it (how is this done?) and after, install the 3.1.2 version?

    Or is there a way to install the 3.1.2 on an iPhn that has 3.1.3 already?

    Gracias
