    I restored my ipad with 3.2.1 firmware and then set it up as a new ipad without restoring any apps. I then rebooted the ipad with success multiple times to confirm that there wasn't any problem. Even though I had a sim card placed in the holder, it only showed my an iPad at the top left (just like an Ipad wifi). I then reset the network settings and it rebooted and voila - I was again left at the connect to itunes screen. And after connecting it to itunes, and rebooting it multiple times, the ipad remains stuck on the "Connect to itunes" screen, and the Macbook refuses to recognize it... saying i need to restore. So the problem is not with any jailbreak but with the 3g. Any idea if this is a common issue?
    Concerning the 3G , maybe you need to enter the APN setting . you can try to use RecBoot 1.0.2 but not sure that will solve definitively your problem it have solve many case i know but your look like more complicated

    Same issue. I had the issue with 3.2.1 I updated it to the latest version last week...got same issue. After dozens of reboots the ipad allowed me to enter the passcode. I then restored the ipad back to factory settings, then installed my apps and content. It has now locked again this time (after about 30 reboots - still no way to get in). Called Apple...they just want to sell me a support contract. This seems to be a common issue and I can't believe this 'easy to use device' is so bl**dy temperamental. Seems from my research there is no answer out there for this issue - clearly this is a bug that is effecting many people.

    If you are able to unlock it, don't put the password on. It's much tougher to get it working with the pwd enabled. I figured it was probably something in my 100 odd apps downloaded. I did a fresh install and did not recover it from backup. I've upgraded it to 4.2 and haven't jail broken it and it's behaving fine now. I do dread the "connect to iTunes" screen. But not sure whom to blame.. Apple or some random app I had.

    How do i rectify this?? Anyone else had the same problem??

    Thanks a lot!!
    I have the same problem as his. Tried the suggestion even if mine isn't JB. Still the computer refuses to connect and sync.
    It's frustrating....
    Will I get a replacement?

    how i restore my ipad? it is currently stuck at the "connect to iTunes" screen. I saw several of you mention it, but not give directions on how to restore. My computer also only sees it as an iPad camera, and my iTunes doesnt see it at all, does anyone know how to fix this without me having to send it back?

    OK, so your computer sees the iPad because you can see the photos in the camera roll, right?
    But you start iTunes and you cannot see anything?

    That is strange, but the first thing to try is to reboot the PC (not the iPad). Then reconnect the iPad and start iTunes. It should see the device in recovery mode and ask you if you want to restore it...
