    Have you updated iTunes recently?
    If not, that may be why you're not seeing iOS 7 as the current version.

    OTA, I hadn't thought of that.

    opeasy, are you trying to update wirelessly, or is your phone connected to a PC or Mac with iTunes installed and running?

    opeasy, let us know how it goes.
    I'm curious if it will work.
    As I understand it, after the install, the device verifies itself with the Apple servers.
    Because Apple is no longer signing iOS 6, I wonder what will happen?
    If it's already downloaded to your device, maybe that will make a difference?

    Why not just use a PC?
    Create a back up so you can restore your apps, settings, pictures, contacts etc.
    That way, if anything goes wrong, you can restore from back up later, and you won't lose anything.

    Also, if you choose 'Set up as new' you should be able to skip installing iOS 6 and go right to 7.
    Make sure iTunes on PC is current version, otherwise it won't see iOS 7 as being available for your device.
