Easy steps to Update Apple's iPhone 3.0 software
Firstly, before anything else, make sure that the battery of the iPhone is fully charged, and also if you are using a laptop, make sure it is plugged into the power outlet or be ready with some alternate power source.
If you must use the battery on your laptop, make sure you have enough power to last through downloading a 200MB file, installing, and updating your phone. You don't want your laptop to die in the middle of your iPhone update, it might damage the phone.

In no time a message will appear click 'Download and Install' wait until the updates has finished and there you have it the new iPhone OS 3.0 software updates.
