    Iphone 4 update

    I am trying to download the updates for my iphone 4 from version 4.2.1 to 4.3.3 but I keep getting the following error message.

    There was a problem downloading the software for the iphone. The network connection timed out,
    Make sure your network connections are correct and your network connection is active or try again later.

    Does anyone one know how I can correct this so I can download these updates?

    Thank you,

    Suzanne

    Yeah, that's SUCH useful advice We don't even know for sure when iOS 5 is coming out.

    Suzanne, the first thing you want to do is make sure iTunes is up to date (this error will occur if you are trying to update to a newer version of iOS than your version of iTunes supports).

    If that isn't the problem, the following link has some useful information on how to fix the error:

    Check for itunes updates as dave suggested. Once thats all up to date, if it still doesnt work try disabling our firewall and/or antivirus software...

    Get you iTunes uptodate. Switch off any antivirus software on the computer.

    I agree with unleashed. That was my next suggestion. If you need the link let me know which phone you have and what firmware you want and I'll post the official link up...
