Received my 3G through DF just on thursday and it worked fine until today. (And no, I did not ever try to jailbreak, unlock, or modify it in any way).

Today I tried to install an app through the app store program on the phone via EDGE. (game was cube runner). Right when it finished installed the phone just shut off, when I tried powering it back on it just sits at the black screen with a white Apple. I let it sit for 2 hours and it never did anything, I restarted and still no effect.

So I brought it home and plugged it into iTunes and it wasn't even recognized. Then I tried going into DFU mode so I could reload the firmware but iTunes gave me "Error 1600".

The Apple store is 45 minutes away so I don't want to go there if I don't need to. Any ideas?
