I have an iPhone also. Nice device until you run into what you have.

Plug in the iPhone into the computer that you have been syncing it up with previously. Click your iPhone in the left sidebar under the Devices. There are tabs across the top after clicking your phone in the Devices. Select Summary if it's not already highlighted. Near the middle/right of the screen there is a Restore button. That is what you need to click to restore the phone to it's original working condition.

Let us know if it restores it to working condition.
