    got home from work and started update. Told me 5 hours. Then after 1 hour game me error. Now trying again and says 21 hours remaining. Apple needs to have more servers on hand or roll out the updates at different times to different parts of the country like direct tv does.

    What's up is Apple clearly underestimated the capability of their server infrastructure.

    It took many many tries on my iPad 2 but finally got it through. Similar story on my wifes iPhone 4 but her's went even worse. Somewhere along the way it went goofy and it erased her phone. She immediately freaked but we were able to restore all of her data. All in all it was a huge pain in the rear.

    Is everyone starting to fix these issues? I'm losing track of who needs help and who doesn't anymore.

    You'll get it, Herm. Patience is a virtue. Everyone is backing off the servers a little and giving others room to breathe. It will work next time.

    Use google, search for a direct download link, and be done. You are wasting too much time at such an easy task. Download links for ios5 are all over the web
