    I so I chose to restore my iPhone 3G. iOS4 took maybe 5 minutes to download but I get to a screen that says restoring iPhone software and it just sits in the same place. What can I do to get my phone working again. It sucks not having a phone for 5 hours :mad:

    Try putting your iPhone into DFU mode and then attempting the restore. Look it up if you don't know what it is or how to do it.

    while we are on a 3g topic. I am giving mine to a buddy once I get me new one. Do I just do a system restore to erase all my info on itunes and the app store etc?
