    I wish Apple would just give us an exact time!
    That way certain individuals could at least try to get some sleep....

    I guess arguments can be made on both sides.

    If you announce a release time (or hour range) then you almost guarantee those first hours possibly overloading your servers. However, at least they can prepare for that, right?

    On the other hand, if you don't announce a release time, you risk infuriating (but most likely not alienating) your customer base, right? Also, by announcing it in advance (at 4:00 AM EDT, for example) you might have a huge hit right away, but that would almost guarantee that the normal "peak" hour traffic would be mitigated, right?

    I dunno. I'm an impatient child. I've a busy day tomorrow, won't be near a computer and I just *want it now*!

    The downloads are hosted on "the cloud." I believe Apple uses Akami. So there is plenty of bandwidth to handle the sudden demand of downloads....all at once.

    Apple hasn't announced when because they're going to remain consistent. They never announce when and don't want to set a precedent otherwise.

    You know something, taylorh? That sounds like the most plausible explanation. You're absolutely right.

    Once they announce something in advance, everything else will need to be.

    Funny. Can't believe I never thought about that.

    It sucks having to wait all day here in the UK. Last time I updated there was a server overload so it would make more sense to release the upgrade st different times according to which country you live in. Given I've got a 3G the update isn't that major for me it just gives me something to play with until I (hopefully) get a new iPhone on Thursday.

    Its still not showing up for me. Will there be any problems recognizing the upgrade if you are running 4.0 gm?

    Found the problem, you have to do a restore and not just upgrade in order for it to see 4.0. Its downloading now. Boom!

    I downloaded the update but my 3G was stuck at the backup stage so I haven't been able to upgrade. Going by the Apple discussion forums, I'm not the only one with this problem. Hoping to get an iPhone 4 on Thursday so I'm not too bothered especially as the 3G doesn't get all the really cool features.

    Trust me, OS4 is way better than having your phone jailbroken. It's amazing. I was floored by how smooth and fast everything is, every little thing has been improved. And app switching (for me) eliminates the need for most jailbreak programs that I loved, like biteSMS and SBSettings. I will still end up jailbreaking to get those things, but this is definitely holding me over. 4.0 is really awesome.

    This makes me want to un-jailbreak but I just hopped abroad with Bite SMS and that's amazing. I think I want to keep a little awhile longer, especially since the unlock was just released.
