    Default Pblm when upgrading iPhone 3GS - stuck in recovery mode and won't restore! Pls help!
    Hiya,

    I bought an iPhone 3GS from eBay a while ago and recently decided to update it to the latest OS 6.

    The phone is now stuck in recovery and itunes is asking me to restore it.

    When I attempt this it says "iPhone software update server cannot be contacted or is temporarily unavailable"

    There is no error number.

    I have tried:

    downloading latest itunes
    changing the hosts
    LAN settings


    I have seen something about jailbreaking, and maybe that's whats happened as I did buy it off eBay, but I'm sure I have updated it before without problem.

    Please can you help!?
