When I try to recharge it a red battery symbol appears, then the Apple Logo shows up. It starts and says that activation is required and asks that I connect the iPhone to iTunes, then switch it off. When I try to connect my iPhone to iTunes, however, it is not recognized.
I tried to use recovery mode to restore it, but I am afraid to lose my pictures and contacts. So I didn’t go through with it. I need to no how I can recover my pictures and contacts first.
