Was updating my iPhone 4 to the latest ios and now stuck in recovery mode.

Was updating my iPhone 4 to the latest ios 5.1 (i believe) and a error message came up (didn't make a note of the error code sorry) but now phone is stuck in recovery mode with the USB wire and iTunes logo on. PC wont reconise iPhone when plug it in either. I had to delete an old back up before the update as i didn't have enough space on PC to do the update before but was told that during the update it backs up again anyway. I have looked in Device backup's and there is nothing there I have a feeling i'm going to have to restore it but hopefully there is another way as i wont be left with anything on the phone.
Any help please.
Many Thanks.

Sorted it now, took it to Apple store and explained etc. was nothing could do but restore the phone. Was told to make sure itunes on PC was up-to-date version before updating iphone which could have caused the error.
