I had the same phone and I saw online that the ios5 on top of 4.2.1 will ruin the phone altogether so if you have the money get a new phone honestly dont waste your time on a modified phone origanily from 2008 just dont trust me newer phones are quicker lighter slimer (most of the time) and strangely easier to use please take my advice and do so thank you for reading

SOURCE: cant download apps application on phone

the iphone will sync your apps but you shoudn't need to restore it ever. unless you absolutely need to
if you are downloading apps from the itunes store, they will show in the upper most side menu on itunes.
plug your phone in and when it mounts, it comes to the summary, which shows the ipod picture.
in the upper part above the ipod picture you will see tabs, click on the apps tab and choose your settings. IE sync all apps etc.
Click apply and you iphone will sync your apps. it may take a few minutes because it backs up your phone also transferring the apps on the phone to your computer to sync.

SOURCE: my iphone does not turn

If the ios 5 is in beta. That means that it's in Test mode. If it keeps messing up and dying. It's not ready yet.

Beta = Test

So the best you can do is offer feedback to Apple over it, then restore your phone back the the latest ios 4 for the time being, and wait for ios 5 to get out of Beta mode

I want to up date my iphone 4 to ios 8

For updating the iOS, you need to be connected on the Wi-Fi.

Tap Settings > General > Software Update. Tap Download and Install. If a message asks to temporarily remove apps because iOS needs more space for the update, tap Continue or Cancel.

How to get Facebook for iOS 5.1.1 .

facebook on iOS 5:
It is possible, a bit tricky, but possible. First, you'll need to download the Facebook app through iTunes on your computer, this will make it show up as "purchased" in your library.
After that, open up the App Store on your iPhone and go to the 'purchased' tab. When you try to install it this way it will tell you that you need iOS 6 or higher, but will also ask if you would like to download an older version of the app. then click on download.
- again step by step:
1) Open up iTunes on your computer
2) Go to Store (left hand column) ->iTunes Store
3) Search for Facebook; - download the app
4) then open App Store on your iPhone
5) Click on 'Purchased'
- you will have to install Facebook by clicking on it as usual.
App Store will ask you: "Download an older version of this app. The current version requires iOS 6.0 or later, but you can download the last compatible version.",
- then click on Download and it should finally work.

How do i start using iOS 5 in iPhone 4

All you need to do is connect your iphone to iTunes and get the iOS upgraded when it is synchronized.
Update your phone with itunes by connecting it and clicking on the "Check for Update" button while holding down the Option key (Shift on a PC). Select the iOS5 IPSW you just downloaded and confirm.
