    Make sure you have all your content in iTunes, as the update to iOS 5 will erase your iPhone. After the update, Restore the iPhone using your most recent backup, then resync your apps and content.

  • HT4972 how to activate iphone 3gs after restoring?

    i restored my phone but its not activating now what to do now

    Either you do not have a SIM installed in the phone, in which case you need to put a SIM in it, or the phone was hacked to unlock it. If that's the case, it will not activate until and unless the carrier it is locked to authorized unlocking it.
