    Hi this is my first post so hello all!

    Just a quick question

    Im from the UK

    i had 3.01 software on my phone then i tried to update to 3.1 on Monday while it was updating it came up saying error 1604, 1611 bascially ive tried EVERYTHING new even tried restoring on both mac and PC but kept getting errors. i now know that it is the phones software that has been corrupted. i rang 02 they told me to take it into a store and as it is still under warrenty they will try and fix it and if they cant give me a replacement. I have a white 3G 16GB which they no longer sell since the 3GS.

    Does anybody know what they will give me if they have any old stock white 16GB 3G?

    do this step by step.

    I believe your using a PC as i've only seen this error on it.

    1. Start the sync any means necessary.

    2. When the screen goes blank and doesn't seem its doing anything else Do the following
    Ctrl + Alt + Del

    Kill itunes.

    3. open up itunes and it will sync and pick up where it left off.

    Bob your uncle its sorted.
