i keep getting this messaging saying, "this device is not compatible with the iphone. Do you want to put it in airplane mode"
its really annoying so im trying to restore it via itunes but it keeps giving me a unkown error. Ive even tried this on my sisters itunes on her laptop and same thing! Help!
And I have the old iphone, and i have firmware 1.1.4 and it says im up to date so why isnt it letting me restore it?

Could there be something on your iPhone that would cause this odd error?
You could download firmware(1.1.4 or some other) and restore with that.
Also, are you just pressing the restore button or are your putting it in restore or DFU mode?

yup like jeckel said
download 1.1.4 firmware from here
put your phone into either recovery or dfu mode
to get into dfu mode you need to hold the power and home button for 10 seconds or until the phone turns off then release the power button and keep holding the home button until itunes recognizes the phone
once itunes recognizes the phone hold the shift key and then press restore in itunes
it going open explorer and choose the 1.1.4 firmware that you downloaded"Search" is your friend
