So got a new iPhone to replace my (jailbroken) 3GS. I'm sending my 3gs to gazelle to get some extra cash back. I decided to restore the phone, since most phone places in general frown upon jailbreaking. So now I'm stuck on the plug-into-itunes screen. iTunes says I need to restore, but every time I try to, an error message comes up and the phone screen returns to a picture of the USB and the itunes logo.
My new phone is a 4s and activated. iTunes is trying to put iOS 5 on the old 3GS. Advice on getting a functional 3GS?
