I still cant get the upgrade to 2.0. I try but it wants to take 5 to 6 hours and times out. Should I just wait till tomorow?

Asked by stevenb (3811points) July 11th, 2008

I want it dang it! I have been trying since last night at midnight and today early, and now I have been at it for a couple of hours. Even the firmware upgrade is taking 6 hours to download. Why is it so flippin slow? Should I wait a couple more days? I am on the west coast time, so I had hoped I could do it this late. Shucky Darns.

Via iTunes when you connect your iPhone for synching & Check for Update.

Is it out for iPod touch yet?

I’m waiting until after the weekend, and even then will likely do it in the wee hours when most traffic is down. I also want to copy all of my pictures first, just in case.

it’s slow because the rest of the known universe (22 countries any way) are also trying to download it or activate their new iPhone (assuming they managed to get one).
