    I downgraded OK but when it comes to restoring anything its a nightmare. Restore from back up freezes on estimating time, I left it for an hour and gave up so I set it up as a new phone, it stuck on the apple pay verifying card page. Any ideas? And my internet and wifi are working fine.

    Why would you downgrade? iOS 9.3 is working very well.

    Seems like that's affecting people on prior iOS 9 versions as well.

    No problem on my Mini 4 or the iPhone 6 that I updated. You may have an issue caused by your configuration or some other app.

    Yes professor, you're right.
    It's just that I'm extremely biased since the 9.3 "update" bricked my daughter's 4S. And trust me, this time the word depicts exactly what happened.
    You got to give me some leeway here coz if Apple today won't replace the phone for FREE, you're going to read a lot more you're not going to like.

    Back in the day (ya, old man talk) if you were flashing the cellular radio and it failed you literally had a bricked phone. There was nothing you could do to fix it.

    you cant really brick an iPhone. Just put it into DFU mode and restore. I understand Apple re released 9.3 for older devices. Just restore.

    Tried DFU restore 4 times with 2 PCs and 1 Mac Book Air.
    So did Apple the next day when I took it there.
    Always came back with error 3014.

    So you CAN brick an iPhone after all. Coz that's what I've been having since the 24th of March.
    But now you're saying that Apple pushed a new and improved 9.3 update?
    Well, my wife is already going to Apple this evening.
    Let's see what they'll have to say and we'll take it from there.

    You can brick an iphone...just short circuit the power and GND in the lightning port to fry the circuitry and the phone cannot be recharged anymore...once it runs out of juice, bricky :)
