    Default Can't Update To 4.0.1

    Thanks for this, Apple.

    I am almost 100% certain Apple makes up these errors and pushes them to Windows users so that we will buy Macs just to use our phones properly.

    I got that same error (-20). Just came back from Apple and they can't tell me what the problem is either. Told me to call AppleCare. I'm able to sync the phone, just can't back up my phone.

    There seems to be a variety of reasons for this, from security suites to corrupt music files. I found on the Apple support site. That's if you haven't fount it already. It might help.

    Mine is stuck about 10-20% into the update. The status bar for the update progress hasn't moved in about 35 minutes. Anything I can do? What happens if I pull the plug?

    I updated to it on my old laptop that runs XP. I don't notice any difference besides them changing the first signal bar to look taller though. Seems more like an attempt to make it look like you have a stronger single bar of signal. Lol.

    i had no errors when i updated mine and making the signal bars longer is stupid. It makes Apple look like they are hiding something...

    I cant upgrade to 4.0.1 because it can't do a backup. The error i get is "session can be started with iphone" I can sync all day long but as soon as it backsup it gives me the error. To upgrade to 4.0.1 it needs to backup first. Any help with this error..

    Everytime you sync the phone does the backup first. So, let me get this straight, if you have synced you have a backup. Now when you try to do the upgrade it stalls out during the backup phase? Is this correct? If so I would try to re-download the update first. Then if it were the same issue I would try and do a restore from backup and then try the update and lastly I would try to restore as new then try the upgrade. The last option wipes your phone clean and you'll have to re sync all of your media,contacts, and whatnot.

    And as for the original post, Jellotime, yes, Apple wants you to get a Mac.
