Hi anyone


I've bought a new iPhone 4s about 3 months ago. First upgrade went fine with iTunes (ver 10.6.1), so I know it cannot be the connection.


For the last 3 months I've been trying to upgrade to iOs 5.1.1, but keep getting an error -3259 message (server has timed out).

I've checked my network settings, firewall settings, and have even tried to upgrade using other internet connections, but still no upgrade.


This is a big problem, because it starts downloading, and then just freezes.


I'm not on an uncapped internet connection, and have lost alot of my package to just be dissapointed (the upgrade being 803mb).......

..... and I'm starting to resent my once favourite purchase.


I'm on the verge of offering to pay for a disc with the upgrade, or anything - this is NOT cool !!


Any help please ?




iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1
