    IF you have an iphone 3gs, then open itunes, connect iphone.  It will prompt you to update.


    If you have an iphone 3g, then you cannot update it

    You need to update your iPhone's iOS version first, the current version of that app requires iOS 4.3+

    Connect the iPhone to your computer's iTunes and copy any purchases off the phone to your computer via File > Transfer Purchases. You may also want to copy photos and any important documents off the phone as well e.g. via the file sharing section at the bottom of the device's apps tab when connected to iTunes, via wifi, email, dropbox etc - they should be included in the backup, but it's best to have a copy of them outside of the backup just in case. You can then force a backup of the iPhone by right-clicking the Iphone 'Device' on the left-hand side of iTunes and selecting 'Backup'.

    Then start the update by selecting the iPhone on the left-hand side of iTunes, and on the Summary tab on the right-hand side clicking the Check For Updates button

    Updating to iOS 5+ : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972

    Your phone should be updated to iOS 6.0.1 (which is the only version that is 'signed' by Apple), so you will lose the built-in YouTube app and the Maps app will change - though google have app versions in the store.
