    Hi all,

    So, I updated and lo and behold, iTunes is timing out when trying to connect to the server. All I'm getting is my emergency screen and my IMEI and ICCID. Anyone else have this problem? Is the network too busy? Thoughts?

    Me too.

    Everything seems to have gone fine until just after the message that the iPhone will be restarted. iTunes window went blank, now Iall I get is the following error message:

    "We could not complete your iTunes Store request. The network connection times out. Make sure your network settings are correct and your connection is active then try again. OK"

    There's nothing wrong with my network - everything else is working fine.

    Ideas?

    Right? Apple needs to be reminded that they're f***ing with peoples' PHONES. This isn't a damn iPod.

    Funny isn't it, I can browse the rest of the iTunes store but it can't get to the bit to activate my iPhone. Perhaps someone should have warned Apple that Apple were going to release the new software........

    I updated my phone as well -- or rather I got most of the way through the update before it stopped. Now the phone seems to have been reset to factory standard. No apps, no phone number, nothing. I can make a 911 call but that's it. I can't even access my backup on iTunes because the store won't let me connect.

    Anyone else in the same pickle?
