It's taking a while for the update. It's a biggie though at 218Mb. C'mon, C'mon. . .

It's showing up for my touch, but it says the page can't be accessed. Sad

Yeah, I've done the download and it installed the software on my iPhone but, now it's been hanging at "Accessing iTunes Store" for about 15 minutes. The really crappy thing is my iPhone is useless right now. It's showing the screen it did before I activated it! This is not good. I use my iPhone for my business and have to get going here shortly. . .

CRAP!

I can't even get that far, but that sucks! I think Apple needs to buy some new servers from IBM or something. Wink

It's absolutely the update hanging. If I eject the iPhone and click "iTunes Store" from the left menu it goes right to the iTunes Store. Once I redock my iPhone it hangs up "Accessing iTunes Store. . . " I can't even get the summary screen for my iPhone to restore it back to the old software. It's been 50 minutes so far and I don't have too much longer to wait.

Apple needs to get their shit together on these updates.

So it's gone from bad to worse. Now all I get is this:



Next stop, a call to Apple. I can't even restore to the old software, the phone is useless right now!

Ouch! I'm going to wait for a while. I don't want it stalling out.

It finally went through. I think I'm in the home stretch now. Almost 2 hours is nutz for an update. BTW, it wiped my iPhone completely clean to do the update, it's now resyncing all my music and videos so, it's going to take even longer. At least the update is done and it seems to be usable again.

Phew.
