Yes I know it's the first post here, but any help is much appreciated!
I purchased an iPhone from someone local knowing it would not recognize in iTunes tbh, I thought it wouldn't be that bad!
Anyway, it's 16gb 3G. It turns on, loads and goes to the connect to itunes screen.. upon connecting.. nothing happens. It DOES charge once connected but doesn't sync. The iPhone is not recognized at all by the computer (tried on a few laptops, pc).. tried all the resets and going into DFU mode and still doesn't recognize it!
I am pretty sure it enters DFU mode as once I do it, I need to repeat the process to get out of it.
I'm pretty lost, is it just completely broke?
Once in the "connect to the iTunes" screen run redsn0w.
Tried that, nothing happens. :(
Thanks for replying though :)
Did you already tried putting into recovery mode (not DFU) and go from there?
Yes, tried that

If this is the case, just replace the dock connector, or if you can manage, straighten out the bent pins.
