Apple releases iPhone Software 3.0 - Page 5

post #161 of 381
I have several family members with 1st Gen iPhone and some with 3G. Not all have high speed internet. Anyone have a link to download the 3.0 software without going through iTunes?

But does anyone feel as though their iPhone has got significantly slower?

My phone takes longer to start up, the apps store takes at least 1 minute to show any icons and apps generally take longer to open.

Anyone having this problem?

So far, everything seems a bit faster.

See my post above for the directions on how to update through iTunes when the file was downloaded manually.

Thank you... I guess 30 minutes wasn't enough... I rebooted everything, then plugged back in for the intall process and it finally did it after some 20 mins or so.
It was just weird because during the "backup" process, the progress bar just hung in the middle and didn't move for 30 mins. I thought it had frozen

You need to keep trying to connect to the iTunes Store. It took me about 6-7 times and I kept getting the same error. Eventually it worked! With everyone and their brother trying to update/activate at once its putting a strain on the servers.

Yep. Rebooting didn't help either. So I'm going to keep hammering at it and hope! I've gotten the error probably 20 times now, I'm on FIOS so it's not internet speed either.

I've gotten iTunes to successfully download the 3.0 upgrade. But when I ask it to Update my iPhone (1G), I get an error message after extraction saying the "iPhone cannot be updated at this time because the iPhone activation server is temporarily unavailable."

It says to try again later. I've been trying for the last 20 minutes.

Anyone else seeing this?

Just point finder to the file.

Where can I get a similar link for the iPhone 3G?

I am stuck on beta 5 and don't have the GM version, so it still won't upgrade me since I technically have OS 3.0.

Thanks

Well I got through the whole download. It took about 15 minutes. My iPhone was automatically restarted and I got the "Network Connection Timed Out" and now I can only make emergency calls from my phone now. Anyone else having this issue? i am not receiving calls either. Do I have to go up to the AT&T store and re-activate it once I get the new OS downloaded?
post #178 of 381
OK, well my first sync with iTunes finally finished (like I said, the backup took forever). The notes on my iPhone did not sync with the notes in Apple's Mail app, so I tried it again. I checked the Notes checkbox in iTunes and hit Apply, and it spun the beachball for a few seconds and then the Notes item unchecked itself, the iPhone synced, and still no updated Notes. Can anyone see if they can get this to work?
post #179 of 381
The download started at 1:16 CDT & ended at 1:20 CDT. The software works as as advertised but 3 attempts to access the Store on my phone resulted in 3 error messages (shows "Error -4). Will try again later.

The iPhone activation server is temporarily unavailable. I guess I'll have to get it when I get home from work! Blast!

The 3.0 update has killed my iPhone. It's a brick now. iTunes store error or says "iTunes cannot connect with this iPhone" or something similar.

How many other bricks out there already? Twitter is hopping about it at the moment.

The update was successful after encountering some of the problems mentioned in earlier posts. I just kept syncing and it eventually worked. The problem is that only Apple apps show up, as well as Bento for iPhone. I did select all other apps in iTunes but they will not sync. Anyone with the same problem? Is this because my apps are not 3.0 compatible?
post #183 of 381
Updated both my iPhone 3G and my iPod Touch without any problems.

Great update; now I'm just waiting for my new 3GS!

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

These issues happened to me last year... it's the mad rush with everyone updating, if I recall this also happens around Christmas too with the iTunes store.

Downloaded the software, installed and just as the iPhone was rebooting i got an error message. Everytime i try to complete the update iTunes is trying to connect to the Store and then telling me the network was reset and to check my connection and try again. I did this 10 times now to no avail.

Plugged it into my other Macbook but it can't connect to the iPhone because its locked with a password. So now my iPhone is stuck with in multi-language mode, No Service, Locked and useless. Cheers Apple!!

Hopefully it's the server on overload and will complete later.

It's most likely not bricked...just keep physically re-connecting your iPhone until things work. It looks like it's taking most people 5-10 tries.

Great, now I get to wait for the activation servers to come back up. Wasn't this the same problem the last time?
post #190 of 381
Although I d/l the 3.0 update well enough, I can't update currently due to the iPhone activation server being down or overloaded. I've been trying for over 30 minutes on just this one step.

That stated, and after reading some of these initial posts, I'm going to wait until I get home this evening. I'm going to review further posts and see if 3.0 is turning out to be more trouble than it's worth (frozen phones, flaky iTunes, long backups, missing applications, feature bugs, etc.)

The same is happening to me in Barcelona. I've been trying since 1 hour ago and the message keeps the same for two different iPhone 3G.

Still trying...

I have just updated my iPhone (8GB original) to v3.0. All seemed to go well until the iPhone restarted, connected to iTunes and then I get an iTunes error message that says:

We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An Unknown error occurred (-4)
There was an error in the iTunes store. Please try again later.

I can manually connect to the iTunes store but when I connect the iPhone, I get the above error. Thus, it is not activating my service. The phone was stuck on the initial 'plug the usb cable into iTunes' screen.

Finally, after about 30 minutes of trying (turning the phone off, exiting iTunes, again and again) it finally connected to the iTunes store and it appears that I have my phone back.

It's linked in a number of places in this entirely-too-huge thread...just do a search in the forum for "appldnld" (the first part of the web address for the link) and you should find it.

I had the same problem... took several re-connects 'till it finally right. The error message is very non-descript:

"We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An unknown error occurred (-4). There was an error in the iTunes Store. Please try again later."

I was on hold with Apple Support when it finally worked & activated.
post #196 of 381
Did exactly the same to me but is ok now. The server is just overloaded. Leave it a while try again and it'll eventually sync up.

HEY YOU GUYS!!!

APPLES SERVERS ARE BORKED BY THE DEMAND!!!! IT SUCKS BUT YOUR PHONES AREN'T "BRICKED" AND THE UPDATE DIDN'T BREAK ANYTHING!!!

Sorry to shout but how many people are going to come here and post the same error message and express their despair?

Either wait a while or keep reconnecting your phone. In an hour or two all will be well.
