    I think it depends on how much stuff you have on your iPhone. The actual restore part doesn't take too long at all, maybe 20 minutes. The reinstall if music apps and etc us what takes time.

    Also what restore are you talking about? restore to factory settings? restore from a recent backup? restore from a custom firmware?

    the longest will be restore from a recent backup since it will restore all your data like sargd66 said. The time for that also depends on your data, if you have a 32GB 3Gs with 20GB of data then it will take quite awhile compared to a 16GB 3Gs with 8GB or data.
