Did you unplug it from the USB and then plug it in again? Mine finally restored after being erased for about 3 hours. A lot of the other instructions here can help you - like shutting down your firewall temporarily, check which USB port you are using, etc. Good luck!

If you're on a mac clearing the cache from the terminal worked for me. The actual command is in one of the other problem threads. Mine kept bombing out on trying to connect to the servers for validation and this trick worked first time. Now back up and running.

Someone kill me now
I just "attempted" to upgrade to iOs5. Mistake # 1!
After downloading all the software, having the new OS backup my phone etc... I ended up in no mans land.
My phone is stuck in Recovery mode with the "Plug to iTunes" icon on the screen.
First Error was "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (3194)"
Second Error was ""The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (3194)"
Third and current Error "The iPhone "iPhone" cannot be restored at this time because the oPhone software update server could not be contacted or is temporarily unavailable."
I honestly don't know what to do....If someone can shed some light on the situation, I would really love to use my phone again... Right now it's looking like it's never going to come back.
I am in Costa Rica, It's an american phone unlocked brand new from apple 4 days ago. If I had to visit an apple store, this would mean I have to take a flight to Miami. There are no apple stored in Costa Rica.
