Finally upgraded my iPhone 3G from 3.0.1 to 4.2.1. Installed iBooks (1.2.1) from iTunes, and Sync'ed.

Problem is, I cannot access the iBooks part of the iTunes store. When searching for a book using the store search, the results section for iBooks invites me to download the iBooks app. Already done.

I have removed and deleted iBooks from iTunes and phone, sync'ed and then reinstalled it. I have also restarted all apple related services a couple of times in case of problems there. No change.

Any ideas? 

The iBooks app lists the 3G as a supported platform so I don't think that is the problem.

{No wireless in my current location so I am unable to attempt to get iBooks from the app store using the phone. iTunes only.}

unless things have cchanged I doubt you will find any books on there anyway. iBooks has next to no content in NZ (apart from free stuff).

Get Kindle.


You will find anything you want at MightyApe (affiliate link).

I have tried with an NZ account and also a US based account. No difference.

[Thanks for the tip on Kindle, but I would like to get iBooks working as well]
