So I just did an update today and When it was done, I got a new background of the iTunes logo with the cable that connects iPhone to your pc or mac and an arrow pointing the cable to the iTunes logo then there is the same slide to open at the bottom but it says 'slide for emergency' in a few different langauges. iTunes wont recognize my iPhone and I cant do anything but call with it atm.

ps. there is a little i in a circle in the bottom right corner as well that says
IMEI and ICCID with random numbers after both.

Whats going on? ; ;

That sounds like the Activation screen. Try power cycling the phone.

So, my son was playing with my phone, and now it is locked. I need to enter a password to open it. Does anyone know how to fix this? He is only three so I can't ask him for the password. :)

Restore. Or wait until your kid learns to speak :)

Wow. I'm guessing that means I'll lose everything?

You will, but then you just restore from backup, and resync the music and apps.
