I have recently upgraded the operating system on my iphone 3GS to the latest software, although some of the new functions work like the home screen files it seems that the new function of additional incoming text alerts (some 17 new ones) are not on the phone, I have tried to re-install the upgrade but itunes will not allow this to be done as it says its already running the latest version, any help would be greatly appriciated.

Iphone 3GS, iOS 4

    That part of the iOS update is only available for the iPhone 4, sorry.

    Thank you for letting me know, shame Apple cant be bothered to post that on their website under that particular section, it just states, for iphone only, doesn't mention iphone 4 only

    I agree, the wording announcing this feature leaves much to be desired.

    Yeah, just like it's a shame the people cannot be bothered to do a search prior to posting a thread.
    This subject has been brought up dozens of times, there are literally dozens of postings about this same issue.
