I recently purchased a new iPhone 3GS after the screen broke on my previous one. When I tried downloading iTunes music I have purchased, it said that I can't download past purchases on this device for another 41 days. I need help resetting this.

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.0.1

    It sounds like you're running up against re-authorization limits.  I suspect there are details in the situation you have not told us which might explain why.


    iTunes Store: Associating a device or computer to your Apple ID - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4627 -  In connection with, "When you turn on iTunes Match or Automatic Downloads, or when you download past purchases on an iOS device or computer, that device or computer becomes associated with your Apple ID." "Your Apple ID can have up to 10 devices and computers (combined) associated with it. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID. Once a device or computer is associated with your Apple ID, you cannot associate that device or computer with another Apple ID for 90 days."
