    Lightbulb How Long Does Your Restore Take

    I just restored my iphone and I don't even use 1GB of memory and I restored from back out and took around 1 1/2 - 2 hours to finish anyone else have this problem. Or know what I can do to fix.

    Restore takes about 10 minutes (maybe 15) restoring from back up, another 10, re-syncing takes about an hour for about 6GD worth of apps, music and videos.

    It takes mine about an hour or so but the longest part is for sure syncing all of my music,videos, photos, and apps!!

    It surely is taking longer than usual for me also. I don't know if it is with the new version of itunes or what, but it is taking a while.

    How many apps are in your back up?

    Longest I have ever waited for full restore was about 30 min. but it was a lot of applications.. Still I could use the device as normal was that was going on.
