    Wow, this is unbearable. I've tried everything & then some and still get the (3200). Is it pretty much certain the problem is a matter of congestion, or should i start to be concerned that there might be a more serious problem?
    Gosh, this is so frustrating....

    It's definitely a problem with congestion, just be happy you're not stuck in recovery mode without a working phone like me lol, just keep trying

    To the people asking about skipping the backing up part, I just figured it out. All you have to do is click restore. For me, it's reinstalling my music and apps. So for people with a lot of things their phone or iPad, it's probably not ideal but I tried it and not only did it skip the backing up process, it finally installed ios5. Hope this helps!
    The big thing i want to avoid is saving my data for those stupid little game I'm addicted to. I worry that a restore would kill my scores and save point in tiny tower, the creeps, plants vs. Zombies, etc. You'd think by now this stuff could be saved in game center and reapplied to a new install of any game, but I don't think this is the case; either way I don't want to take any chances...

    good luck!

    This would make more sense if we were getting the error when trying to download it, not install it. If we have the information/update why do we need their servers to be less full?
    The software is verified online during install, therefore the high traffic causes the verification to bounce and in turn, the install fails. It's a pain in the arse.

    If I select restore instead of update, it states that it will restore to factory settings, erasing media and other data. Is this wise?

    my phone seems bricked. I got an error message 3004 during download. then it asked me to restore but it wont do that now it just sits and spins the working symbol and wont turn on. Also itunes does not even show the phone as connected. Have done several reboots.

    I'm thinking:

    What if Apple is preventing multiple attempts from the same IP in order to alleviate the current congestion issues? By applying a retry timeout limit let's say?

    So I changed my IP (relogged into my DSL account) and voila! the Restore is now underway!

    But then again I may have just lucked out same as many others already did.

    as long as you've backed up/synced prior, it should be fine, you can just resync after the install goes through

    Yes it erases your data and such BUT if you do a restore and have a backup from earlier you can restore to that backup anyways, that all the update button does, it sets it up to do that automatically

    Make sure that the screen doesn't lock after it does the initial back up

    Please DON'T ANYONE try this. 127.0.0.1 is for your localhost address on your computer. This is telling your computer to always look locally when your computer is looking to go to "gs.apple.com. The person that posted this is nothing but a malicious a$$hole to tell people to do this. I am a Network Engineer and have been in the field for over 20 years.
    ***Meeeeeeeeep****

    20 yrs in the filed as Network engineer should have teached you that a # does make a remark for this line,
    so even if the gs.apple.com should be redirected to 127.0.0.1 it is not active with a # in front...
