Did you restore to a back up or as new? You need to do it AS NEW and NOT from a back up if you haven't already. Restoring your phone won't mess it up.

Have you tried restoring with a different ipsw?
iPhone ipsw download
Go to this site and find the latest firmware for you device and download it.
Open iTunes and hold shift on the restore button. A window will open and find the ipsw file you just downloaded and open it.
Hopes this helps and if not then I would just uninstall iTunes and reinstall it and try again.

This does the same thing as iTunes does...
