First I have a dial up line. A really slow one. Can I get a friend to download the updater on a PC , bring it home on a flash drive, then use my Mac to update the phone?

Or should I take my PC laptop to a hotspot to update the phone? I would rather not do that but if it works? If I do this then I will have to wait until I update iTunes on the PC laptop.

If your iPhone is not unlocked/jailbroken, you can do this:

Tell him to download this:
http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite...80115.4Fvn7/iPhone1,1_1.1.3_4A93_Restore.ipsw
(Firmware 1.1.3 ~162 MB)

  • Then open iTunes
  • Connect your iPhone
  • Hold the shift button and click "Update" on iTunes.
  • Browse to the .ipsw file that your friend downloaded and open it.
  • Wait until iTunes upgrades

You're done.
