Your Mac Is Currently Downloading Software For The Iphone Stuck Together

firstly, I’ve got an iPhone 3G, and don’t currently have a home computer that i can 'synch' my phone to.. i DO however have a friend who also has an iPhone and who lets me update my phone etc from her PC when I need to.
basically it hasn’t been a problem not to have a PC to use with my iPhone as i just download songs & apps direct from iTunes onto my phone, which until now i haven’t had any problems with.
however...last night i went into app's and had about 6 updates that appeared. i didn’t want to update all the others listed as i was planning on deleting some of them, however 2 that i DID want to update were a weather application and the other one was facebook.
so i started the update for the weather app, and then i went back to apps and started the facebook app update.
that’s where my problems started. basically both app updates seemed to get 'stuck'. they appear on the screen as kind of 'see thru', with 'loading...' written underneath and the little progress bar is just empty...AND...nothing happens.... they stayed like this for ages. so i tried turning my phone on and off multiple times. Each time iTunes would ask me for my iTunes password as though it was about to complete the download. but then nothing.
over nite i turned my phone off and left it charging. this morning when i turned it back on i was asked for my iTunes password again....and after entering it i lightly 'tapped' the weather app (not sure why i did this??? and amazingly it loaded up!!!
however, i still cant get the facebook app to load up, have turned the phone on /off/on/off heaps of times etc. and annoyingly i cant even just delete the app (and then id just reload it later), bcos it wont let you delete it (i.e. no little X to delete).
im getting frustrated and so have been fiddling about with the phone and went back into the apps and had 2 more updates for other apps waiting...so i (perhaps stupidly?!?) hit 'update all'........and now i have facebook plus 2 other apps sitting trying to load...AND...nothing happening!
So.... now i don’t know what to do?? I’m guessing that if i went and used my friends PC i could perhaps fix it somehow? but getting to my friends place is a bit of a bother and might take a week or so. if i have to then that’s what I’ll do. but i have read about doing a 'hard reset' where you press and hold the home and on/off buttons for 10secs (or something like that) and wonder if this would help at all? I’m just not sure if the problem is with my phone or with iTunes maybe?? if its iTunes then i doubt a hard reset would help?
anyway, if i do a hard reset can anyone tell me what exactly this will do?? what does it actually reset? will it mean losing any info in my phone? contact info? my songs? my apps? i don’t really care about the apps, but losing songs and other contacts info etc would be a problem.
sorry this is SOOO long. if anyone can offer advise id appreciate it.
