I've got these iTunes+arrow+plug icons on the screen when I start the iPhone.
What should I do?

Basically telling you to plug your phone to the usb slot of your computer, and launch (connect to) iTunes.

I was following the youtube video (unlocking iPhone tutorial ver.2) on unlocking the iPhone when i was trying to put the iPhone in restore mode. where a yellow triangle with a exclamation mark should show up on the screen...but instead of the triangle the plug and the iTunes icon showed up and won't go to any other sceen....and plugging into iTunes will restore the iPhone into some newer version of iPhone firmware, and I'm trying to input firmware 1.0.2 into the iPhone....please help.
Thank you for your time......

You held the power and home button for too long... at 10 seconds... release the power button only... hold the home button until iTunes prompts you to restore.

The phone won't go to any other screen other than the plug and iTunes screen.....

you must've had 1.1.1 on it because the old restore screen was the yellow triangle with the exclamtion mark. The restore screen for one point one look like the one you are describing to us.:eek:
