    You need to connect it to iTunes and restore it from there.

    Or download to tiny umbrella and use it to kick the device out of recovery without having to restore

    Since I only have an iPhone and an I pad I can not connect the stalled iPhone to iTunes. Do I need to go to the apple store or my cell carrier store where I bought the iPhone 4? Is this a common problem?

    Download tinyumbrella as previously mentioned and choose the option to "exit recovery." If the problem persists, connect your iPhone to iTunes and restore. Are you saying that iTunes doesn't recognize your phone when it's connected?

    I do not have a computer to connect my iPhone... Only an iPad.

    You will need a computer to restore the phone. If you have an Apple Store near, they'll do a recovery for you.

    without a computer you can't do anything. You can even go to a library or a computer cafe to use one and do this.

    ... And if you're going to do that, you might as well go to the Apple Store.

    Not everyone lives close to an apple store. In the town I grew up in the closest apple store is 2hrs away.

    So not an option for everyone.

    If you would have read the OP's whole post you would have seen that they asked if going to an Apple store was a solution. I assume it is safe to say they have local store. Now I wonder what library, or computer cafe is going to allow you to download 3rd party software to one of their computers to fix your iPhone.
