Could someone please help me with a problem that I´m having with iTunes that´s really annoying. I want to update my iPhone 3G with the latest 3.0 software. For the first time ever iTunes is giving me the following message every time I try to update (been for more than 24 hours now):

+The iPhone software update server could not be contacted. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, or try again later.+

I also get a message if I try to click on the update itunes( not that I need to, as it updated to iTunes 8.2 earlier this month) but still I figure it´s all part of the same problem:

+The iTunes update server could not be contacted. Please check your Internet connection, or try again later.+

Solutions tried so far:

* Going through my internet connection settings - I´m connected to the internet with no problems!
* Changing from wifi to wired connection - same thing, can´t update
* Reinstalling itunes (twice) - no difference
* Switching off Netbarrier

I don´t know what else I can do. I´m beginning to think it may be related to either iTunes being updated to 8.2 or one of the many recent software updates apple has been sending us of Mac OS. My computer is got all recent updates.

Please help!
