    Error 28 is a hardware error from the USB. You can fix this by going to a previous version of iTunes (google for iTunes 8) and restoring in DFU mode. You can also fix this by downgrading to 2.2.1 (only from what I've read, not sure about this fix). However, the broken dock may prevent you from even doing that. You might have to take it apart and replace it.

    I had this twice. First fix was i hooked it to my mac and rebooted, snapped it out of it. Month later it happened again. Fixed it by mashing the home button 20 times or so. What a weird machine.

    well after swapping out a complete dock charging port I can say that did not help me being stuck on the apple screen. I even downloaded itunes verison 8.0 on a old laptop and that did not work. I only got it to restore once and then that error 28 popped up and i can not get it to do it again heck I can not get itunes to see the phone at all. Now what......

    its a hardware issue and I have tried every known thing so if anyone gets the dreaded error 28 message hopefully you will be within your warranty period and can get a replacement phone
