    Oh dude you have to search ,lots of people have the same error search google for your error.
    i think 1611 error is when you have to edit your host file.
    No need for a new phone.
    i just search in two seconds and...

    Step 1. Go to your “Applications” folder
    Step 2. Go to your “Utilities” folder
    Step 3. Launch “Terminal”
    Step 4. Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts” (without quotes) and hit return
    Step 5. Enter your password
    Step 6. Use the down arrow key to find the “” entries. Once the cursor is in front, make sure you comment out the line(s) by entering “#” (no quotes) in front of the text
    Step 7. Save the file by pressing CONTROL+O on the keyboard
    Step 8. Exit the nano editor by pressing CONTROL+X on the keyboard
    Step 9. Restore your iDevice
