    I started the update at 1:12 pm EST. My update started at 32 minutes. Now, at 1:54 pm EST, I'm at 2 hours. This could be a while.

    Edited to add: As soon as I posted this, my download timed out. I'm back at square one.

    My iP4 update file was downloaded in 11 minutes. So far the update is going smooth! iTunes is now restoring my apps, setting, etc from my backup.

    Based on these replies my Comcast outage might be a blessing in disguise.

    It won't restore my phone from a backup after extracting the software. Internal error apparently?

    Help!

    I'm 1 hour and 29 minutes in since I started and its still downloading. says 69 minutes remaining.
    anout 40 minutes ago it said 2 hours so i guess its kind of keeping up the pace.

    Same here. If people are getting two hour download times now, I'm not going to bother at this point, I'll wait a bit. I'd hate to do that again, only to get another error when it tries to back it up.

    Yup. You can use the phone while it syncs now.

    you think it's just server overload or is it actually an issue with the phone?

    It seems to be happening to a lot of people, so I doubt it's a phone issue. Bug already? Who knows. I'm anxious to try iOS5, but I can certainly wait a few hours or another day till the rush dies down, or someone figures out why we're crashing during back up. We've waited this long!
