    Ok so I just bought an iphone 3G and i just got it in the mail today,but when I turn it on all it has is the plug into itunes symbol and the emergency call option.I installed itunes but it doesnt recognize that its plugged in..also im trying to unlock it to use with T-mobile but i cant cuz i can't get it out from that option.

    Have it plugged in and run redsn0w and hack it, at least I think that unlocks it, or "h@ckivates" it.

    Try putting it into DFU mode 1st, then hook it up to itunes and restore it.
