  1. Or just instead of updating your iPhone restore it?! It works. I did it

      Hey Ribal. This error is an internal error from within Apple servers. It is due to the fact that Apple servers are being bombarded with requests for verification of iOS 5 firmware. This is leading the servers to return this error when such an overload exists. So a restore or an update at that given time will result in error 3200. Moreover, most users are not willing to lose all the content (other than the stuff you can backup using iTunes), which is why I recommend using update instead of restore if your iphone is factory unlocked.
