    well apple has destroyed my night. i got to work heard there was a update. thought no big deal the update won't take long. i get home at 2:30. i plug my phone in and there is a update and the download takes two hours. now it's 4:30 the os tries to install. then the progress bar just hangs half way threw for 2 hours. so i unplug my phone.

    now it's bricked. i was going to spend the night with my girlfriend. i don't have a land line so there was no way for me to get a hold of her. also we was going to go on a road trip tomorrow but thanks to apple i can't. so now i have to spend all night trying to get to work. so not only did they steal my only vacation from me, they also cut off my life line to my friends and family.

    i will never buy another iphone or computer from them. sorry apple you just lost a fanboy.



    Whoa, drama-king. Here's what you do. Put in an appointment at your local genius bar first thing tomorrow morning. Go in, get a replacement phone. It will take 20 minutes. Go on your road trip. BTW, why can't you go on a road trip without your phone?

    Unfortunately, some Apple stores are quite a way from where one might live.

    Or already booked through the weekend due to this issue. Can't wait for the presser tomorrow.
  • Satoru Murata Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)
    Fair enough; still can't understand how not having a phone disallows one from going on a road trip. I'm sure people went on road trips long before cell phones, not to mention iPhones.

    Regarding booking, I'm sure you could walk in an Apple Store first thing in the morning, explain the situation, and get somebody to attend to you pronto.

    every time I tried to restore the phone it was trying to upgrade it.
    I tried multiple cables the whole gamit. nothing worked. I tried restoring it to the original 4.0 firmware and it worked, then I was able to restore the backup and my phone is back.

    my restore always stopped at operation 13 progress 98

    honestly I'm not 100% sure why but the phone isn't not a brick anymore

    You better believe it. I will be there when they open in the morning, and I will leave with a phone. I checked the schedule and there are no opening until Monday afternoon

    I attempted to update my iPhone 3GS today at around 4:30 ET figuring it wouldn't take too long. After I grilled dinner up, I checked and it was hanging at around 1/4 of the way through on the phone. It stayed there. So I tried on my wife's PC and it hung there too, only it was transformed into a brick.

    So I called Apple and (thanks to my Applecare Plan) I will be receiving a new one tomorrow via FedEx.

    So it seems as though the issue is not specific to either Mac or PC since my iPhone still worked after I ejected it from the Mac and it is now a pretty paperweight after trying on the PC.

    Bricked. And I thought the phone sucked BEFORE the update. Let's see what uncle Steve says tomorrow then I will decide if I want to keep this form over function piece of S.

    i live in west virgina we aren't lucky enough to have a apple store. no i'm not a drama queen. your phone is apart of you. let me cut off your hand see if you throw a big deal about it.
  • jeewizz101 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Ok Guys and Gals I got mine working again. I remembered from research with 3.1.3 that when the install hung it didn't mean that the firmware failed to install.
    Give this a try and you should be happy.

    Google RecBoot 1.0.2 and download it. Sorry PC users I believe that it is only Mac
    If you have already upgraded and are stuck in recovery mode use RecBoot to kick it out. But here is the key. Unplug or undock as soon as your iPhone goes black from RecBoot. Once it boots up it will complete the firmware installation and boot right up.

    I just dont get it, this is my second post now, I was terrified to update my IP4 but took the gamble. I plugged it into my Imac, 20 minutes to download, the update and 5 minutes to my phone and went seamlessly. Going for a drive now to where I get cell signal to see what the scoop is.

    I came here to see what was being said about the IP4 while waiting for my order last week, and was so nervous I had just made a mistake, never have had a reception issue since activation on Monday. I can squeeze the crap out of my phone and nada, nothing no loss no dropped signal nothing. I guess I am lucky according to all the posts, and I have also logged 8 hours of calls not one dropped call no face mute, no dropped calls, no third calls.

    Just wanted to say thanks apple love it.......

    OMG...I'm so sick right now. My phone is completely frozen..still plugged in & apparently updating but hasn't moved a line in 30mins. I'm so upset that this type of thing is happening but i'm somewhat happy I'm not the only one. Apple HAS to something!! It's obviously not the 4500 of our faults...lol
  • dweb619 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
