    If it is a 3Gs and not a 3G... Then Yes...

     

    Connect to iTunes on the computer you usually Sync with and “ Check for Updates “...

     

    If an Update Appears Install it... if not... you are up to date for your particular Device...

     

     

    See the Using iTunes Section Here...

    Don't risk it if your phone is out of warranty! Why? Because  not all iPhone 3GS models work perfectly with it, and you can't downgrade again if your phone turns out to be one of them.

     

    My iPhone 3GS was 100% fine before I upgraded to iOS6, never been jailbreaked or anything, but now it only lasts 2 days at most before falling into "recovery mode". I've tried restoring on different computers, clearing my backups, restoring from DFU mode, deleting the IPSW to force download of a new one, etcetera, and nothing helps. Apple could fix it - but for the price they ask I could buy a nice secondhand 3GS.
