You have to download the firmware manually – there are links in the official 3.0 is available thread in this forum. Once you've downloaded, press alt/option while clicking on Update in iTunes and navigate to where it's saved and select it. iTunes will then update your iPhone with this new firmware.

Go to Apple's website, the Firmwares are all listed.

you could simply press the restore button. That will download the latest FW from the Apple server and put it straight onto your device. Then just back-up all your old settings. I did it. As i couldn't upgrade either. I was on 3.0 GM and I had some spare time :)

Haha well then your spare time was wasted, isn't GM and 3.0 final the exact same thing?

Ichehuahua! Why don't people know the GM and the Final Release are the same thing? This is baffling to me.
