Problem updating iphone software version 4.3.3

Every time I have tried to update the iphone software when prompted by itunes it crashes, sometimes at the end of the update sometimes before. It comes up with an error message every time. Please can someone help?

First thing I'd do is check that I have the latest version of iTunes. This has cought me out a few times. Other thing that I've experienced is a iTunes seems to think there is a problem with my USB socket, so I've tried another and it's worked fine.
But yes what is your error and error number?

  • Having problems updating iphone software to version 5.0

    I currently have version 4.3.1 and finally decided to update iphone software to version 5.0.  It goes through the 6 minute process, but then I get the error message:  "There was a probem downloading the software for the IPhone -----.  The network connection ttimed out.  Make sure your network setting are correct and your network connection is active or try again later."
    I've tried several times and keep getting the same message.  My network connection is active and I've just the firewall and made sure it allows itunes updates.
    Please help!  Any other suggestions?  When answering please be very specific - I'm really clueless with the computer. 
    Thanks in advance!

    try this,
    Plug in, click update software, and click download ONLY.
    Let the ipsw file download complete,... then click update.
    This way is much better. If you keep having error message, its either your internet connection is inconsistent or Apple's server is inconsistent... usually more likely the former.

  • Problem updating 3GS software (version 4.2)

    I connected my iPhone 3GS to my iMac (OS X 10.4.11) and synced it with iTunes. On the iTunes iPhone summary screen under the "Version" heading, it says; "A newer version of the iPhone software is available (version 4.2). To update your iPhone with the latest software, click Update."
    I click on the "Update" button and a window pops up saying "This version of iTunes (9.2) is the current version."
    I am trying to update the iPhone software, not iTunes. Why is it doing this? I've tried restarting the computer, etc.

    I also have exactly the same problem and yes, I have the latest version of iTunes (well, for Tiger anyway). I'm guessing that I need to upgrade to Leopard with the new iTunes 10 so that I can upgrade my iPhone to 4.2?? This doesn't sound right to me...

  • Problem updating iPod software (version 1.2)

    I'm trying to update my video iPod (30GB) with the latest software (version 1.2) through iTunes, but I get the following message:
    "The iPod cannot be updated because it contains files that are in use by another application."
    I've tried restarting the computer and resetting the IPod, but still get this message.

    I had the same problem (before I bought my Mac). Apple hides the fix pretty well. It can be found here: Hope this works for you!

  • Problem: updating phone software version 5800XM

    hi mate
    i have got a nokia 5800XM.the version is v21 but when i tried to update it i couldnt do it because it said there is no available update for your device.
    in CAN I UPDATE? page i entered my phone code and it said there is no such a phone with this phone code.
    phone code:0549361
    my phone is made in hungary

    Cant see that code on lists as well. Likely that you got a fake sticker so the suppliers can say that they got it from Hungary and fool dealers.
    If the update is not available for you via OTA or NSU, you could try going to a Nokia Care Center.

  • Problem updating iPhone software 4.0.2

    When I try to download the new update (4.0.2) it spends around 15 minutes downloading and then says
    'Unable to complete download due to Network error. Your network has timed out. Please check network settings and try again'
    The exact same thing happens when I try and do the update on my iPad(3.2.2) too.
    As far as I am aware there is no problem with my network (I assume this means my broadband line?). This has been happening for three days now and after trying to download over ten times I am stumped. Any ideas?

    Hi, i also trouble with the 3g network. I couldn't make/rec calls or send/rec text msgs but i could email - odd. I rang apple and they had me turn off the 3g setting and now i can use me phone. I assume this is a vodaphone issue and not my phone's fault as i first thought. Just an idea if any one is having similar probs.

    I hope you guys can giv me some support here since I am Apple genuine buyer. I could be wrong last time and now I turn over a new leaf and learn a lesson.
    Please noted that I can always create new account to ask for the same questions without mention about "jailbreak" if I want to but obviously I won't do that. Please provide me your support! Thank you!

  • Error when updating iPhone software.

    error: [There was a problem downloading the iPhone software for the iPhone "Eliz's iPhone". You do not have permission to access the requested resource.] I am trying to update iPhone to version 1.1.4 and I get the above error. I have reset the iPhone, restarted my computer, updated and repaired iTunes software ( nothing works. Has anybody else had this problem? Anybody know how to fix it?

    Well I checked and all my USBs are 5.0 or higher. However, i have 4+ USB ports on the back of my computer. I tried two different ones and the second one allowed me to pull in my photos (which i could not do before). However, It still will not let me update the iPhone software. Same error - you do not have permission to access the selected resource.

  • I am unable to update my software version on my iPod touch. It gets to the very end and tells me that my session timed out. What should I do?

    Every time I try and update my software version for my iPod touch from version 4.2.1 to version 4.3.5 I get within .5 MB (409.5 of 409.6MB) to the end and an error pops up telling me that my network connection has timed out so that the update could not be completed. I start the nursing program next week and need to download books onto my iPod, but it will not let me download the updated versions until my software is updated. I have tried restoring my iPod but when I restore it it says I have to download new software at the same time, therefore I can't even restore it. I just tried resetting my iPod and erasing all data as well as uninstalling iTunes and downloading it again and it still wont work. What do I do? I need to update it so it is ready for school in a week. Any advice? I have tried calling but as I understand I would have to pay for anyone to help me and I really don't want to do that until I have to.

    Hi Jen.  My daughter just compleated her nursing program and is now working as a full time nurse.  Focus and study hard and soon you will be there too.  Now to the problem at hand.  I have the same problem.  I gave up on it and satisfied myself with my iPod without the upgrade.  Reason being I've read so many posts of people having problems after the upgrade.  But I'm sure other factors are involved.  Nevertheless here is the fix most say works to solve the problem:  What ever virus protection you have installed on your computer, disable it.  Then try to install the update. After that enable the protection. I had Kaspersky, and it does it's job well. The thinking is, the virus protection is blocking the upgrade.  Hope this works.   Charlie

  • Updated iPhone Software to vers 2.0. Now "Sent" messages & folder are gone

    *Just downloaded (40 mins) & installed iPhone Software version 2.0.*
    Contacts/Phone/Bookmarks/Music Library/Picts are all OK. _PROBLEM IS I've lost all my Sent Email messages and Sent Folder for each mail account and no longer have access to any messages sent from my iPhone_. It's ironic because during iPhone 2.0 update, there was a message about backing up mail/contacts/picts et al. After update & firmware update, iTunes restored info to my iPhone, but all sent messages are gone. Everything else appears to be OK.
    *Does anyone have any idea how i can retrieve them.* (Seems if they were backed up to iTunes, that it should be possible to restore the same information).
    [I turned off "Push" by navigating on the iPhone:SETTINGS>FETCH NEW DATA>PUSH- "off". Since turning PUSH off, new sent messages (i.e. after 2.0 upgrade) appear in sent folder, but older sent messages are still missing in action.
    Your thoughts & comments are greatly appreciated!

    This may be odd... responding to my own posting, but for anyone with similar issue, I just spoke with the people at "1-800-myiphone".
    Result: "Sent Messages, and Sent Message Folder are both temporary, and are not part of itunes/iphone syncing or backup features".
    To restore the prior Sent Messages that existed in the earlier iphone software version 1.14 is impossible as messages are not stored on AT&T's servers, and iTunes does not sync "sent messages." The only work-around to re-populate missing sent messages is for the recipients of those messages to forward messages back from their computer, not their iphones, (Remember iPhone strips attachments from forwarded messages, therefore recipients who have iphones must 'forward back message from their computer only).
    After migrating to iphone software version 2.0, it is a really good idea to do a "Bcc:" (Blind Carbon Copy) to onself on all future messages. That way messages will arrive in your 'inbox' which can be synced and restored via iTunes software.
    In short, I think Apple is using a technical glitch in it's software update to coerce users to use the "MobileMe" service that Pushes and syncs messages to an iPhone and the user's other computers.
    Hope this posting is helpful to others.
