    Default Trying to restore...stuck in recovery mode

    HELP! I am trying to restore my iphone to send in the Asurion...I've activated and am using my new phone but I need to send in my old one. It's in recovery mode and I keep getting an error when trying to connect to itunes...it never restores completely. In recovery mode, could someone still access my info that was on it? That's my main concern, I have very important personal/work emails that I legally I can't allow to get out...

    what do I do?

    try download the firmware 4.2.6 here
    then hold option/shift while you click the restore button. it should bring up a pop-up window. select the firmware 4.2.6 that you downloaded from earlier and just watch it restore.

    if all else fails...try restoring it thru "DFU Mode" and selecting the firmware too.
