    Okay, so my idiot brother woke me up this morning at 7am and handed me my iPhone saying that it's not working. I've now found out that he downloaded an OS update for 3.0 and updated my iPhone with it and now it's stuck in recovery mode but when I go to connect and restore it it say..

    "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone "iPhone" because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the iPhone before it can be used with iTunes."

    The problem is, my iPhone is in recovery mode and when I go to type my code in it just takes me to the emergency call screen.

    WTF do I do?! Thanks!

    Kick your brother in the balls for effing up your phone.

    Oh trust me, I already did. He won't be having children anytime soon.
    Do you have any suggestions?!

    Wow, thanks so much for the overwhelming help!

    Just FYI, I went into the Apple Store and they replaced my iPhone with a new one.
