So I updated my iPhone with the 3.01 download. Before I did this my phone was fine. Now after I updated it none of my applications will open and my screen keeps going black and/or just turns off my phone completely! Anyone else having this problem or know anything about fixing this? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

First try a restore from backup and see if that helps, if not try and restore as a new phone. If neither of those help then you will need to visit an Apple retail store and have a genius take a look at it.

If iTunes doest recognize it in recovery mode, put it in DFU mode.

Hey what is DFU mode? Thanks
Device Firmware Upgrade Mode also known as Recovery Mode

To do this

Turn the phone off and unplug it from the computer, Hold the home button while plugging the phone into the computer via usb and keep a hold of the home button till you see the connect to iTunes icon displayed on the phone.

Actually all I ended up doing was going to the app store and updating one of them and then the rest worked and my screen is fine now :) ... Wish I knew it was that simple yesterday!

It's not the same as recovery mode. Recovery mode shows the connect to iTunes image on the iPhone screen. The screen is black when in DFU mode. If iTunes doesn't recognize it in recovery mode, you have to put it in DFU mode.
