My 3GS has operating system 4.2.1 on it, when you plug it into iTunes and check for a software update, it says you have the most current version of software available, now ive updated iTunes to ver 5 and i put the phone into DFU mode as well as just trying to update it the normal way and nothing works, any suggestions would be great thank you

Two really simple questions: 1) are you clicking the update button on iPhone screen? 2)do you have the latest iTunes update?

That scares me. My wife has downloaded iOS 5 and ready to install on her 3gs.

Hey here's a thought...wasn't there like a 4.3.5 update in between your's and iOS5? Did you try that one or did iTunes default to iOS5?
