    Did it for me!
    "Same problem but solved doing this :

    On Mac:
    * Open Finder
    * Hold down COMMAND + SHIFT keys and press 'G'
    * Enter "/private/etc/" in the field and press "Go"
    * Find "hosts" file in the directory
    * Drag the file to your desktop
    * Open it in text editor
    * Remove the line that has gs.apple.com entirely or put a # at the beginning of it to comment it out
    * Save the file
    * Drag it back to the /private/etc/ folder.
    * You'd need to enter your username and password to authenticate the move

    On Windows:

    Locate the hosts file in one of the following directories:
    Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows\hosts
    Windows NT/2000/XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    Windows XP, Vista, 7 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    Right click and click on "Open With..." and then click on "Notepad" on the list.
    * Remove the line that has gs.apple.com completely and save the file.

    This should work fine but you will lose all music, photos, videos and books :S

    Thanks to user KianABC "

    Thank you so very much.

    I thought I was doomed. I'd been messing around with this iPhone while trying to jailbreak an older phone a few weeks ago. I was convinced this had "goosed" this phone. Very simple instructions, I am so very grateful. Many thanks again.
