so i got me an iPhone saturday and it was unlocked with 1.1.4 but there was a catch to it.. it didn't sync with iTunes and didn't come with usb cable? so i just went ahead and got it thinkin i can use my ipod cable and maybe rehack it to get it to work? now when i plugged my iPhone to my labtop or pc's it doesn't even connect nor make a sound that theres a new driver? so i went ahead and got another cable just to see if it would help but no such luck.. i can get my phone to charge but it doesn't show the icon its charging? what im suppose to do now? i can use its phone function but thats all? was i screwed over? i can go do recovery mode when holding down home and power but when it ask for me to connect to iTunes i cant cause my pc's don't reconize the iPhone? any advise please....

I can only tell you the usual possible fixes---try different cables, try all the other usb ports (make sure it's not on an add-on hub), uninstall and then reinstall your usb through Device Manager on pc. Wish I could be of further assistance!
