Re: iPhone update server could not be contacted, but why
Reconfirm if your computer is set to "automatically detect settings." You will find this by clicking on the Start, selecting Control Panel. Now select the Network and Internet Connections, Internet Options and go to the Connections tab. Click on the LAN Settings button and mark the check box that says "Automatically detect settings". Now click on OK button to save changes and restart iTunes for changes to take effect. Retry to connect iTunes and updating the software.
