    Disconnect the dock from the Mac. Press and hold the Home and sleep buttons UNTIL A YELLO TRIANGLE appers. About 25 secs. Then Fire up iTunes THEN plug the dock back in. iTunes should say "found an iPhone in Restore Mode...." You will likely have to re-unlock after the Restore.

    Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately the yellow triangle is not showing up. I held the buttons down for about a minute. Any other suggestions??

    Thanks again!

    NEW DIRECTIONS:
    • Unplug iPhone
    • Restart your computer
    • Once restarted, open iTunes
    • Plug in your iPhone and cancel anything that may open.
    • Hold the power button on your iPhone until it goes off
    • Then turn it on
    • When you see the apple logo, press and hold both the power and home buttons
    • Continue to hold until you see the yellow triangle(your iPhone may restart during this, just keep holding)
    • In iTunes, it will ask if you want to restore or something, hit restore
    • iTunes will run some things that will allow your phone to restore.

    In the future, also, I would completely delete breezy and any other applications you were using, and re-download.

    Dock your iPhone and then hold the home + power button for 25s and you will see the yellow triangle. You have to be docked to make this work. Good luck.

    After restoring your iPhone download this http://www.nullriver.com/~zigzag/AppTappInstaller.zip and run it. It will get installer.app on your iPhone. Like Trent J. said delete the Breezy.
