    When I downloaded ios 5 I accidently hit restore as new phone. Is there a way to get back to that screen so I can get all my old stuff?

    • Make sure iTunes is up to date using the software update found in your system preferences. Then plugin your iPhone, launch iTunes and check for software updates.

  4. Got itunes10.5.0 but still can’t download iOS 5 on my iPad. When I try to download it says Safari can’t open this page.

    • Jamie, is your phone still stuck?  You can try reseting the iPhone holding down the lock button and home button simultaneously until the phone restarts.

  9. The download was successful, but it didn’t do anything at all after that. Nothing popped up, nothing happened at all. Help?
