    i keep getting this messaging saying, "this device is not compatible with the iphone. Do you want to put it in airplane mode"

    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

    I'd like to go ahead and point out, restoring your phone won't get rid of this error message. This is actually a very common error message and is nothing to worry about. The iPhone is actually smart enough to know if the device you're connecting it to was built for an iPhone or an iPod, the difference having something to do with the fact that the iPhone is well... a phone. If you just hit the no button the phone will go right on working like normal and you can continue to use it as an MP3 player.
