    So I was trying to do a restore on my iphone 4, because I was having battery life issues, and others on here said doing a restore would help. Now my iphone is stuck on the "slide for emergency" screen, with the connect to itunes logo. My PC recognizes the iphone, but iTunes wont' recognize it. Even when i go into recovery mode iTunes doesn't pick it up. Help?

    iTunes 9.2? Did you restart yet? The slide for emergency screen means it hasn't been activated with iTunes at all yet; that's the factory setting.

    yeah itunes 9.2. I've restarted the iphone and itunes, and my pc a number of times. so I guess I need a trip to the genius bar?

    okay, so I plugged my iphone into my mom's Mac book, and it activated the iPhone. but now my PC still won't read the iPhone. It charges, but itunes wont pick it up.
