This happened while you were in the middle of using your phone? It was already on, and everything was normal?

Reset it again.

Make sure you SIM is in, doesn't matter if the SIM is active. Connect to wifi, then connect to your PC and iTunes. No idea why but some phones need the trifecta of SIM, wifi and iTunes to activate.
