    did you happen to update from tiger?
    i had the same problem when i upgraded today, what you need to do is re-download the latest itunes from apples website manually, and reinstall it.
    then your iphone should connect fine. i'm guessing it maybe has something to do with installing it on the previously incompatible osx

    hope this helps

    Are you using iTunes 9.2? Earlier versions will not recognize iPhone 4.

    Ive had similar problem!
    Although ive not updated anything. Been using iTunes 9.2 for a few days and activated my phone beforehand. Ive used iTunes since to add music and such to my new phone, but now... it freezes, and doesnt recognise my iphone!

    Ive tried downloading and reinstalling it and nothing works!

    Help!!
