Problem updating Iphone 3gs to ios5

Hello.
I have a serious problem. Yesterday, Itunes requested to update my phone to IOS5 (My Iphone was working perfectly on the older version of IOS)
Updater got stuck on the recover part for an hour until I recieved an error.  " Iphone could not be restored. Unknown error (14)."
On my phone's screen it wants me to plug it into itunes. Itunes says "ITunes has detected an Iphone in recovery mode.
IPhone software must be restored before it can be used with iTunes"
I try to restore it and same problem occurs. Any ideas? I've noticed some people are facing problems with ios5 update also.
Thanks already for help!

  • Getting message "we are unable to complete your activation at this time" when trying to update iphone 3gs to ios5

    After downlaoding ios5 and installing I get the message "we are unable to complete your activation at this time" when trying to update iphone 3gs to ios5 using itunes. Can anyone help?

    Hi David,
    any luck later?
    I'm experiencing the same issue and I see that you're also posting from China. Not sure is location-related but if you managed to activate you iPhone: how did you do it? Just keep on trying?
    I'm a bit fed up of trying. It's already two full days...
    Thanks, ciao.

  • Updated iphone 3gs to ios5 now I can't open contacts or make phone calls

    This afternoon I decided to update my iphone 3GS to ios5 and now I find that I can not open the contacts app or the phone app which told me I had missed calls and a voicemail they just both immediately close. I tried opening the settings > mail, contacts page and that closes immediately and after creating an icloud account thing I tried to turn contacts on and it just automaticaly closes. I tried creating a contact from an existing message and it automaticaly close. I've sync'd the phone numerous times and it's the same deal. It's only these two apps that don't work
    If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

  • Just Updated iPhone 3GS to iOS5, Can't receive any incoming calls at all

    Hi, I just updated my phone to iOS5 and now, I'm having these troubles.
    - Can't receive any incoming calls at all
    - The incoming calls directly goes to voice mail greeting
    - No incoming rings & no missed calls alerts
    - Also noticed the incoming text with 4 to 5 hours delays
    - Sometimes 3G network get lost
    The reception (status bar) is good level, can make outgoing calls okay and can send text okay.
    I did try reset the network setting and it seems working a few hours then went back to troubles (mentioned above).
    I've done 3 or 4 times reset but none have been resolved yet.
    Anyone having a same issues?
    I have
    iPhone 3GS with iOS5
    Network with O2 UK
    Thanks,

    After reset "All network settings" a several times, it seems working but few hours later it 's been gone back to troubles again.
    Is this related to iOS5 or O2?
    I've contacted the network carrier several times but no-one yet get back to me.
    Any ideas, please helps.

  • Problem updating iphone 3gs help

    just tried updating my iphone 3gs it was interrupted and now the phone screen has locked saying "setting language" and none of the buttons are working
    my computer is not recognizing it either.. help would be appreciated

    Hi tobster99,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    For more information on this, take a look at this article:
    iOS: Unable to update or restore
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808
    When using recovery mode, you can only restore the device. All user content on the device will be erased, but if you had previously synced with iTunes on this computer, you can restore from a previous backup.
    Best of luck,
    Mario

  • TS1538 Problems updating iphone 3gs software.

    I am attempting to update the software on my iphone 3gs but when i click "check for updates" on itunes, it tells me that my current software (4.2.1) is up to date! Please help, it's very frustrating as I can't even use the facebook app! I am clueless about most things apple so have no idea what avenues to explore to sort it out.
    Thanks Jess.

    If you have a recent backup of your phone (meaning you sync regularly) after you restore the phone you can restore that backup.

  • Problems updating iPhone 3GS from 3.0.1

    I have read numerous other posts on this topic, but they have not helped me. Whenever I connect my iPhone to my Mac, I am prompted to update the iPhone software, but this has failed repeatedly, with err=-3259. I have tried connecting the Mac to my wireless router with an ethernet cable, and have also tried turning off the firewall. I have no specific antivirus software installed to turn off. I have tried restoring my iPhone, but this also fails, as the iPhone software update is "timed out" with the same error message. Any ideas, anyone?

    That's because Apple is no longer signing v3.1.3 nor any firmware other than iOS4.  You could try following a downgrade to v3.1.3, see these:

    This guide works for 3G but not 3GS, though there are some suggestions for 3GS users in there:

  • Iphone 3gs with ios5 update. bluetooth connection with car problem.

    I updated my iphone 3GS to IOS5. After the update, the bluetooth (handsfree) connection to my car (Lexus RX350) does not work anymore. I can connect  any other cell phone bluetooth to my car. Only iphone after the IOS5 update is failing. Any suggestions (I reset many times)?

    Some people havent had one problem when updating to iOS4, others have been over run with problems. I myself have lost virtually all sound from my loud speaker so calls, txt messages and ipod are virtually unheard now..
    Went to my local Genius bar in Liverpool today, complete waste of time, the guy restored it like I hadnt already done that a 100 times, then said oh yeah it is qeit not heard of that one before, to get a new one will cost you £139!!
    Yeah right mate, not payin that as its not my fault! did ask him if he ever looks on the Apple forum about faults people are having, and I got a blank look. Told him a thread with tens of thousands people all having the same problem with low sound from the speakers and calls being ended in mid conversation since updating to OS4 seems a bit strange then... another blank look!
    Ive lost all faith with apple as a company now and will not be upgrading to a iPhone 4 anytime soon or any apple product, no one seems interested in helping but quick enough to take your money, thats my opinion anyway..

  • IOS 5 Problems on Iphone 3GS

    I just upgraded my Iphone 3GS to IOS5 and it seems that I encounter a new bug every day.  First, the phone runs much slower.  This I could tolerate but now I can't use some of my favorite apps most of which seem to be associated with listening to audio.  I can no longer listen to saved programs on NPR News.  My audiobook app "Bookmark" will no longer function at all.  The new Iphone app "Music" which seems to have replaced the old "Ipod" app will not play MP3 audiobooks.  Does anyone out there know what's going on.  Are there any fixes to these problems?  Jim

    I do appreciate your suggestion.  I did update to IOS 5.0.1 and the problem with not being able to save or play items in the NPR News "Playlist" seems to be OK now.  However, neither the stock Iphone "Music" app nor my purchased "Bookmark" app can play MP3 audiobooks since the IOS 5.0, and IOS 5.),1 updates, and there are no updates to either app in the App Store.  If anyone could help I would appreciate it as I really use MP3 audiobooks.

  • Reception / Battery problems with iPhone 3GS after upgrading to iOS 4.2.1

    There are major reception and battery problems with iPhone 3GS after upgrading to iOS 4.2.1.
    I can not believe that Apple did not test this for major bugs like this one is.
    I am a business user and can not effort to have bad reception. Apple wants to gain in the business clients... I never had this with my former BlackBerrys!
    I need a reliable phone not a play thing like this is right now, it just needs it to work propely. And if a major bug like this comes along, fix it immediately. After the iPhone4 story, now this...incredible! Going back to my reliable BlackBerry! It just ain't reliable and takes forever to fix a problem.

    I have the same issue after iOS 4.2.1 update. I am using iPhone 3GS officially unlocked by Apple. I tried using different SIM cards and both carriers show same problem when using phone in 3G mode. Phone falls back to EDGE mode showing 'E' from '3G' at start. I have reset the phone and rebooted several times and moved to different cell areas in the city just to verify the problem.
    I had no such issues earlier. I also have Nokia E71 which shows full signal and has no such issues.
    I have posted the bug on apple iphone feedback page. I hope they Apple will fix the problem and test the release properly on all models before releasing to public.
