    Default iPhone won't be recognized by computer and now stuck in white circle of death!
    my iphone 3G won't charge and be recognized by my computer. i tried all methods like changing battery and putting it in DFU mode but nothing worked. my last resort was to erase content and settings. i tried to reset the iphone by erasing the settings and content because i think it is a software problem, because it still charges when battery is empty, but when it has already loaded the springboard, the charging will stop and it cant be detected by my computer. now, i am now stuck in the white circle of death and DFU won't work. is my iPhone bricked? someone please post a reply. any help would be very GREATLY appreciated.

    Even though its in DFU mode, computer won't still recognize my iPhone. But i know it charges though, so i think there's no problem with my USB port of my iphone. Any other suggestions?

    Have you tried setting into recovery mode instead of DFU? iTunes will recognize for sure if it is in Recovery Mode.

    To set it into recovery, when the phone is ON you hold home and power until the screen turns off, when the apple logo shows release the power button and hold home until the iTunes+USB screen shows up.
