    you must have little snitch installed in you mac, which might be blocking the home calling by itune.
    it could be your firewall blocking.

    Ha! Was emailing about connection problems myself here... this was their response...

    I'm sorry to hear that you can't connect to the iTunes Store.

    Peg, I have verified that the iTunes Store is functioning and accepting connections, which indicates that the issue is related to your internet connection, local network, or your local computer itself. This article outlines some of the likely culprits:

    Can't connect to the iTunes Store

    Apple Discussions are another source of information about iTunes, where everyone from new users to professionals can interact and share their knowledge and experiences. You may find another user with the same operating system or ISP that may be able to help resolve this issue. You can find the iTunes discussions group at:


    I hope this information is helpful. Have an awesome day!

    My Ipad 2 is stuck in recovery mode. I updated to 4.3.3 and now I just get the Itunes logo on my IPad screen and itunes says there is an issue with myt device. I am not very impressed I have contacted apple support and they say I have to take it to an apple store. Does anyone know how I get it out of recovery mode??

    Alright guys i found a solution! This worked for me perfectly and i was able to restore and update my iPad 2 last night. Im on a MAC btw.. Do the following steps and then reboot your computer and restore the ipad. Should work right after. Open TERMINAL on your computer then do the following steps.. If it gets stuck at 95% at restore which i had the same problem, if you have wi-fi sync then uninstall it. After you update you can re-install it again. Hope this helps!

    Type sudo su

    Press enter

    Then enter your password and hit enter

    Type vi /etc/hosts

    Move your cursor with the down arrow to the line that has gs.apple.com without a # at the beginning of the line.

    Move cursor to the beginning of that line.

    Type i# then press the esc key.

    Type :wq

    Press enter

    Type exit

    Press enter

    Now you can quit out of the terminal application. This likely is a problem caused by Tiny Umbrella denying itunes communicating with the apple servers. Now reboot computer and update iphone/ipad!
