If you’re trying to upgrade to iOS 5, there’s a good chance you’ve seen ‘Error 3200’ flash up on your screen when ‘verifying iPhone with Apple’. Like me, you’ve probably seen it numerous times and were starting to worry if you’ve bricked your iPhone.
Fear not. This article confirmed my suspicion that the problem is down to excessive loads on the Apple servers. From the comments it looks like iPad users are getting Error 3104 at around the same time in the process.
My latest install attempt failed, however my iPhone is now repeatedly rebooting itself without any input from iTunes. I’ll update this post when (if?) the install is completed.
Update 1 – it appears I am not alone. Error 3200 is trending on Twitter!
Update 2 – success 🙂 And on that note, I’m off to bed. Thankfully I don’t need to fish out my old Nokia for the morning!
