    Hi,
    For the past two days my facebook app hasn't been working. I couldn't even open it in safari. So I decided to delete the app and try to redownload it. Well it said that I needed iOS 4.3. I haven't updated my phone in the past because everytime I hooked it up to my laptop it would always freeze. But I tried to do it again to see what happens. But when I hooked it up and tried to update it (I currently have 4.0) this pops up: "iPhone software update server could not be contacted". I googled that but I don't understand what anyone is talking about it. People have mentioned something about doing something to the "hosts" and some other things but I have no idea what that means. Can someone please explain to me how to fix this, step by step. I know basic stuff about computers but not very technical things. My phone is a 3gs and I've been thinking about getting a newer one but I don't want to have a problem with iTunes with a new phone too. So can someone please help me get rid of this problem so I can update my iPhone?? I'd really appreciate it :)))
