What's the average iphone restore process??
Any idea how long this takes? I've had it going for a good 30mns still saying "restoring iphone firmware". This is actually an improvement from all the error codes I was getting on my first few attempts about 5mns into it (errors 1015, 1611 ). Got around those by googling some solutions but now it's stuck with the white apple logo and the progress bar at about 2/3 of the process. Should I leave it alone or just do it over. I read some say 20mns, others up to 3hrs!!! I'm confused here.
I got less than 2g worth of media on itunes; as far as apps it says 99 apps, probably 20 or so were on the iphone. Will I know when the synching starts so I can abort that part or it's all done in one shot during this boot logo?
I have about 3hrs before I leave for work, would really suck if I have to leave the phone behind.

Okay, here's the info from Apple's website regarding ports that need to be open:
Open the proper ports and allow access to Apple servers
During the update and restore process, iTunes needs to contact Apple. Ensure that your computer has the following ports open and can access these servers:
* Port 80
* Port 443
* phobos.apple.com, albert.apple.com, gs.apple.com
Note that whenever your software is communicating with a secure connection over the Internet, it is critical that your computer's date and time are correct.
If you see "Error 9807", you must open access to the following VeriSign servers:
To learn how to open your network to access the VeriSign servers, refer to your router, firewall, or security software documentation.
If you are using a Windows operating system, you can follow this article to help resolve issues caused by third-party security software.
You may need to update, properly configure, disable, or uninstall built-in firewalls and other security software to prevent interference with iTunes. For assistance with this, contact the company that supports the firewall or security software you use. If you are using proxy settings, try to restore or update without using a proxy.
Port 80 can be problematic, since most ISPs block it.
