    I am trying to restore my iphone and it is giving me an error:

    "The ipod software update server could not be contacted. An unknown error occured. (-185)"

    I messed up my unlocked iphone because I updated it like a dummy. I just uninstalled itunes 7.7, and re-installed 7.6.29. I put my phone in DFU mode and now I can't get it back to anything. It won't turn on or anything. I tried to run ziphone and it is telling me my phone is in DFU mode and I need to open itunes and restore it to factory settings. I am completely stumped at this point.

    Someone please help, I have been without a phone for 3 days and it is killing me! I went to get ATT service to solve the whole update issue and they were 2x as much as tmobile?

    Any info or suggestions would be a real help.
