I have 1.1.1 which when connected to mac can't be find by iTunes.Phone was working till 2 days ago with no problems.Unlocked by anySim. I am not able to go in restore or DFU mode at all. Yet when connected via usb to mac I can get in restore mode (got the sign to connect to iTunes on the phone) but still not seen by iTunes.
any suggestions please.

you need to get it into DFU mode. do so by:
1. itunes open, phone unplugged
2. holding both the home and sleep/wake button until the phone turns off
3. release sleep/wake button, continue to hold home button
4. plug in phone
5. continue to hold the home button (phone screen should remain black) until itunes recognizes it and asks you to restore

No luck, at step 5 screen doesn't remain black, phone switches on and I get the sign to connect to iTunes but iTunes is not responding at all, no meter how long I hold home button. Any other suggestions ??

If the phone reboots you are not doing it correctly. You let go of the power button the second the screen goes black.

I am doing it correctly, it is not first time that I am doing this, I did it before without any problem.

How if my mac doesn't see the phone. iTunes won't see it at all. I will repeat, at the step 5 once I connect usb while still holding home button, phone reboots and I get the image to connect to iTunes but iTunes still can't see the phone and it is not asking me to restore.
Anybody with more ideas PLEASE, thanks.

As Poseidon said, you're not doing it correctly. you let go of the sleep/wake button as soon as the screen turns black. do not wait until the apple image comes on

As I said before, I do let go sleep/wake once screen go black but as soon as I connect usb, screen comes to life and I get connect to iTunes image but still iTunes can't see the phone.
