"The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1611)." Thats the error message I get every time I try to restore my phone through iTunes. My phone has the connect to iTunes graphic and when I do I get the "iTunes has detected a blah blah blah you have to restore to use this device with iTunes" I have iTunes 126.96.36.199 I have a PC I have Windows Vista I think my iPhone is updated to the most recent OS which I did recently. Not sure though. I've tried to restore it multiple times on one computer and once or twice on another. Each time I got the same error message. I have tried multiple USB ports on my computer and nothing else is plugged in. I haven't gotten any bit of progress and I have tried putting my phone into what I believe was DFU mode and that failed as well. This is a list of what would happen on my iPhone and what was happening on iTunes at the same time. Some are messages of what iTunes was telling more and some are just descriptions of what was happening. This is in just a single restore attempt. - extracting Software (message on itunes) - Loading Bar - Iphone on connect screen - iphone seems to restart/logo dissappears - the loading bar fills - new loading bar - iphone disappeared on itunes 2 bars ago (happened earlier, itunes no longer shows the device as being present) - bar fills up - apple logo on iphone - new bar - fills up - still apple logo on iphone - now the phones seems to restart again - apple logo on phone - still loading/working - now back to connect to itunes on iphone - and error message comes up 1611 Kinda hard to udnerstand, I was writing it in real time as it was happening but it is what happens everytime. The one thing I haven't done yet is take it in which is a bit of a last resort for me becuase I know I am going to get pissed when I am there so I'm trying to save myself the... issues. If anyone can help even if I said I did something feel free to please repeat it and anything could be helpful. I called Apple and they told me my call in service was expired and instead of providing me with help they tried to sell me a new plan or some s***. Very unhappy with apple, iphones, macs everything about them is pissing me off right now. This is just one of a host of problems but I'll save that rant for another time. Again any help would be greatly appreciated.
