    Do you have enough storage space? You need 2.3 Gb free otherwise the update will not proceed.

    You also need to be connected to a wi-fi network.

    Hang on. Thinking this one through. Good for space. Good for charge and plugged in anyway.

    Why not plug it into iTunes and do the update that way? Even OTA, you will download the whole OS, not just a patch. You ARE sure your wifi is up? Sometimes it will drop for no apparent reason.

    Tried to DL iOS 6 first day it became available and it froze due to load on servers
    Ten tried day after and wasn't plugged in and it stopped because I had less then 50 percent charge available for install

    Trying again today and tells me unable to install
    Yet it shows the iOS Description box above as iOS 6 installed and grayed out?
