    Hi, just try searching here/Google, whatever you want next time: Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software.

    Also, please red this before posting: New Members read here, Title Conformity. Did your thread get deleted? Here's why

    Thanks

    Upgrade will only upgrade the firmware while restore will basically apply all the factory settings and all your info will be lost.

    Hope it makes sense

    First the firmware is not 1.2 or 1.4 but 1.1.2 or 1.1.4

    Restore will wipe all the data in the phone similar to factory setting and reinstall the system from scratch.

    Update will preserve your data (musics, videos, contacts, pictures...) and just update the Operating System of the iPhone.

    And oh yeah, duck9000 was faster.
