    Well at least I found these post to make myself know I was not totally losing my mind. I bought an i phone 3 from a facebook yardsale site and I was honest in saying I was phone dumb , this was over a month ago and I have tried over and over to do something with it , needless to say the heifer ripped me a new one so when I finally called her out on it ,publicly on the yardsale site , she called me everything but a human for being honest about the phone , so I will just do without a radio and facebook until I can afford a good phone....broken hearted at the moment but I am glad to know there are people who can be honest in saying , you just need a better phone ...Thanks for sharing some intelligence :o

    Hi, I am in dire need of help. I saw a new update for iphone and tried to update. After updating the new software I am getting this message - "We’re sorry, we are unable to continue with your activation at this time.Please try again later, or contact customer care."
    I can not go back and restore the software as the itunes does not recognize the iphone!!

    Having read "Is Jailbreaking Reversible?"located in the middle of the page HERE in the jailbreak section of the forum, you should be able to update by connecting your device to iTunes to upgrade or restore as new.

    Connect your device to your computer, initiate your computer's iTunes app (Download & install it, if you don't have it), and when iTunes recognize your iPhone, select the restore option.

    According to the Apple website found HERE, "Error 1015": This error is typically caused by attempts to downgrade the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch's software. This can occur when you attempt to restore using an older .ipsw file. Downgrading to a previous version is not supported. To resolve this issue, attempt to restore with the latest iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch software available from Apple. This error can also occur when an unauthorized modification of the iOS has occurred and you are now trying to restore to an authorized, default state.

    after you plug into iTunes go to your Summary tab and select Update. i believe 4.2.1 is and will always be the highest version you can go to

    and if all else fails, toss it into a trash can

    You can't update the phone beyond 4.2.1. If you jailbreak, you can get iOS 5 and 6 by using WhiteD00r but it isn't official software.
