Usually to activate the phone you have to connect it to a computer running iTunes.  This is also how the updated operating system software gets downloaded and installed.

Re: IPhone is disabled - connect to ITune - WTH?

To ask the obvious, if the phone is telling your to connect to iTunes, have you tried connecting to a computer that has iTunes on it?  If so, what happens?  If not, you probably need to connect it like it says.

 

Also, more info might be helpful.  Is it a new phone that you bought from AT&T, or one you got off eBay?  Does it have a SIM card?  Locked or Unlocked?  Which iPhone model do you have?  Are you trying to use it on AT&T or some other network?

 

It sounds like it's either a new phone or an old one that has been cleared by the previous owner and needs to be set up as a new phone.  In either case, I think it needs to be connected to iTunes to perform the initial setup process.
