    All,


    Hope someone has some ideas. Did the verizon iphone update this morning, and itunes died / bricked the phone during it. Ended up getting a generic 1602 error.

    Uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes on the machine (xp machine), and tried it again, with no luck.

    Got it hooked up to my macbook, downloaded and installed the firmware no problem. Go back to sync the data and the xp machine bricks the phone again.

    iTunes is updated to the latest, as is the phone's firmware. No jailbreaks of any kind in play.

    Any thoughts?

    I'd love to, but isn't my phone. I have mine into my MBP. This is run off of this machine for an associate.

    All,


    Thanks for the info all. If someone else is looking in the future, ended up having to build it as a new iPhone in the existing iTunes. Almost like the backup was corrupted. Very odd, but give the phone a different name and then re-setup your preferences and you'll be good to go.

    As for the "If you bothered to search" and then a link to a broken page...bite me.
