CompExpert :

hi,
if you have ios 4.3, do into app store and download chrome browser then used it to go to facebook.

let me know if that doesn't work by reply in here. thank you

Customer: When I tried to download fb app on my iPhone 3 it said I needed iOS 4.3 which I think I have 4.1. I did some research and it seems you can't do the upgrade on this phone. A friend suggested I search facely hd by g-whizz! Apps. I am also tech challenged lol so alot of this is blah blah blah
CompExpert :

do you have the iphone 3 and not iphone 3gs correct?

Customer: Well maybe I'm not sure how can I tell the diff
CompExpert :

CompExpert :

Customer: 88040t3bedg

Customer: I do have a slider on my camera so yes must be a 3GS lucky huh?

CompExpert :

all you need to do is, update your itunes software to the latest version by go to link below, then plugged your iphone into the usb port, select your iphone name within itunes software, click the summary tab then click update

CompExpert :

after update done, now you have latest ios 6 which will let you download any app you want from app store including facebook app

CompExpert :



update should take about 30-1hour itunes needs to download ios 6 file which is about 880MB before doing the update itself

Customer: I'm on the link but don't c where to go next. I clicked on the iTunes tab and iPhone tab and the iOS tab but can't c where to go next.
CompExpert :

the link will let you download itunes software and install on your computer

CompExpert :

after done download and install on your computer, open itunes software then plugged your iphone into the computer.

now itunes software will recognized your iphone, just select your iphone name then click on the summary tab then click update

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
