I went to update to iOS6 and I got an error and now it wants me to restore my phone but it's not giving me an option to restore from an update. It's just blank. I've tried googling it but there's a million random answers and who knows how old they are and if things have changed since then. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Woot, woot! I think I fixed it on my own. Awesome. No idea how to fix my sig, but I have a 4S and my 5 is in Kentucky waiting on it's release ;)

Do you have a recent backup copy of your phone contents saved on your computer via iTunes?

Luckily I had just backed it up before trying to install 6. I was worried that it wasn't going to let me restore from backup because it didn't give me the option, but once I went through a few steps it did. Thank you!

Good..

Rule #1: ALWAYS have a current backup on iTunes of your current iPhone configuration. It will likely save you in the end!
