    Did you try holding down the home and sleep button at the same time?
    if that doesn't work, don't bother with going to AT&T or Apple, they will just laugh at you for jailbreaking it.

    You need to hole down the sleep wake and home button for 10 seconds the release the sleep wake button while still holding the home button for about another 5 or 10 seconds. This will put it into DFU mode and you should be able to restore it. Let me know if this works and if not i will try and help. Set up as a new iphone also.

    EDIT-----------------------
    I got it into DFU mode my timing wasn't right I didn't know I had to let go of sleep after screen turn off. Ill let you know how it works out, itunes has been downloading the software for a while.
