Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com I am Cris.

Have you tried to restore the phone through iTunes?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
but our internet connection is on-and-off and download keeps timing out. Do I just need to wait until I have new internet provider (tomorrow)?
Expert:  Cris replied 11 months ago.

Well that is performing the update.

You can restore the phone but that will erase. If the phone is backup'ed through iCloud or iTunes you can restore it. But if you do not have a backup and don't want to lose the info you will need to do the update and yes will require a stable connection to at least download the update. Then after it is downloaded internet is not required for it to install.

Let me know if you have any further questions I will be glad to answer them. Please take the time to rate my service at the top and submit.
