Hi folks,
I have researched on Apple, and it seems that 4.2 is the latest software and firmware. I have also searched here, but no dice.

I am having two troubles - under General/About, it doesn't show my iPhone model. My serial number is 88813PIFOKH. I think it is 3G (or maybe 3GS.)

I'm on 10.6 on Itunes, but it only shows that 3.1.3 software is the latest, and it does not show firmware. I need it for a notes app which says it requires 4.2. (My 4GS died, sadly. Thank heavens I keep my old one each time. :-) The 3G won't support the one I would like; it only shows 4.0, and I need the latest 4.2, preferably for both software and firmware.

I did do a Restore, but no change and still no luck on either.

Thanks for all of your help on my few Posts!!
-Shannon

Please do not double post. I removed your duplicate.

Your serial number according to Apple is not valid. Are you sure you have the right # number?

Hi chscag,
I could not see my first post - sorry about that.

I have checked my serial number on Apple, but I found no way to find it. After 3-4 checks, I know it was valid. Oh, at my age, I cant read the tiny numbers on the back. Let me try this one instead which I
found in General: 88813P1FOKH.

†hank again!

Your serial number is: 88813P1F0KH (Note - that's a numerical zero not the letter OH)

Anyway, according to Apple your free warranty period has expired: LINK

Hi,
Does it being (LONG) expired, mean that I'm out of luck? According to what I have researched, it seems I should still be able to upgrade. Am I mistaken?
Thanks for all of your help!

Hi Chas-M,
Thanks for all of your help. I even did a Restore on Monday, but as I check what you just said, no luck. Under Summary, it only shows 3.1.3, and nothing below except the serial number and phone number. I think I'm stuck, since it is obviously out of warranty, so I can't talk with Apple. This notes app is really not a big deal; just something that would help me.

FYI, I have kept up with the latest iPhone each time. I'm really sad my iPhone 4GS died, but I know why - water damage when it fell into a glass of water while I was resting due to a massive, (head trauma based,) seizure. Please don't worry y'all, I am under the care of a really good Neurologist.

I can't wait for the iPhone 5. *Grin!*

Thanks again,
Shannon
