    Have never used Iphone before.. Started using iphone 3g , it worked perfect but got some problem and needed to restore. All my apps are gone. Now trying to install the apps again and all apps require iOS 4.3 but the max update is 4.21.. Cant install any of the apps (instagram,viber, whatsapp) Without apps this phone is useless..

    Can anyone help me ?

    iPhone 3G can update until iOS 4.2.1 the only way is to jailbrake it and download older versions of apps that you want from sites like apptrackr (is closed now)

    You can do the jailbreak at re-add the basic software then you can update the phone as normal, a quick google search will help, i used youtube as a guide as well
