after finally getting back my internet connection, and 4 hours downloading and installing (on the first try!), I'm finally up to 5. Got the ATV updated too after a couple of tries. Will tackle the ipad tomorrow. Good luck to everybody else!

Tried earlier to update no luck, servers overloaded. Tried few minutes ago and got through server portion but couldn't update looked up the error and seems to be like the device isn't meant for this build. I am trying to update a Verizon iPhone 4. So I uninstalled all my apple software on windows 7 pc and am currently re-downloading iTunes at an awfully slow rate (for some reason there aren't a lot of mirrors for it). Will re-install and try again. This has been a vexing update situation.

Once you download it, open up iTunes and just cancel any box that pops up. Hold option and click restore. It will throw up a box where you can browse to the downloaded file and it will try and use that to restore your iPhone. If you do this though you will have to restore your phone from a backup after its successfully updated. I think that's all right but if someone has some more info by all means please add on to it.
Sorry forgot to mention it but you would also have to put all your music/video back on your device as well using this method.

I finally updated today. I plugged my IP4 into the computer to sync it and also DL iOS5. I did a download only this morning. I don't know how long it took as once the DL started I unplugged my phone and came back several hours later and it was done, but when it started it showed 89 minutes.
About 5 this afternoon I plugged the phone in and started the update. I checked it about 6 and had an error message with a -5000 code, said something along the lines of couldn't backup, continue and lose everything on the phone or cancel. I cancelled.
I did it a second time and it updated. I didn't have any music and the apps would not load. I did a restore which took about an hour and so far everything is working just fine. Total time from the second start to having a working phone was about 2.5 hours.
So far I'm pleased with my update to iOS5.
