    Yes. I am having trouble installing the new iOS updated software to the phone. It tells me my device is not eligible for the requested build.
    Not trying to be mean but you ask a question you need to read the answer. The iOS software is not what was update. The PRL has to do with cell towers and roaming etc. There is NO new iOS download for Verizon.

    Ok, thanks for trying to help but i thought the thread was named "Official iOS 4.2.8 Update for Verizon". I have iOS version 4.2.6 and was having trouble upgrading. Sorry if i was mistaken.

    Kagee,

    Sounds like an issue with host files to me. Let me get you a link to a youtube video that shows how to clear the host files whether you are on windows or mac. Once the host files are cleared give the update a go again.

    Go and follow the instructions. They are for a different error, but I used them for the same error you are having and it worked great. Good luck.

    As per my knowledge, some sites (GDGT and Gizmodo) have the better option of downloading the softwares..
