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
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!?
