    Has apple said when 4.0 will be available for download? Is it midnight tomorrow, later in the week?

    it'll likely come online some time in the afternoon or late morning on Monday. Last year it was 1pm. After a little while it was crazy hard to access the servers, but if you just leave your iPhone connected, press update, and it gives you an error message saying it can't access the server, just leave it and it will automatically reattempt until it makes the connection.

    No chance they publish iOS 4 secretly late Sunday evening? To avoid the peaks?

    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.

    Well. Should I install the GM candidate today (having a 32 GB iPhone 3GS) to avoid the hanging servers tomorrow, or should I wait? iTunes 9.2 and the appropriate .ipsw files are present...
    I am terribly impatient but a bit unsure...

    Since multi-tasking and some other stuff in iOS4 are disabled for the 3G, I have enough patience to wait until Thursday when I can pick up my new 4. My 3G won't be upgraded for quite some time...if ever.

    Just wait...there could be a newer build released tomorrow.

    Yeah I'd say just wait. It won't be too hard to upgrade.

    Thanks- that's helpful. I am really excited to try this one! It has everything I would want or need and wouldn't even think of JB except I want to tether my iPad so I will be looking forward to the JB on the new phone when it's available. All the great reviews make it even more exciting!

    This is what I've been thinking, but really, I'd only lose Backgrounder and themes (that's all I've done with J/B so far).
    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.
    I know we will get a new j/b for iOS4 at some point, but I wonder if S.J. won't throw some new trick to slow down the hackers?
    Tough choice for me. Stay with what I have 'til the dust settles? Or go for the new features, with whatever blessings and curses iOS4 might bring?

    If it's 1 pm eastern, that would fit well with the regular 10 pm western (pacific or whatever) keynote time, right?

    I would say I am excited but I have had the GM 4.0 candidate on my 3GS since it was released so. Meh. Haha

    just plugged my 3GS in, obviously iOS4 isn't out yet but just noticed the picture of my 3GS now shows the iOS4 homescreen, i assume this was bundled into iTunes 9.2

    My bet is on no earlier than 1pm EDT. That will be the first moment that all of the world time zones (excluding uninhabited areas) will have entered the magic day.

    +1 on this one. Good logic here.

    AMG's logic sounds good. Though, I would say that what happened the past two years might not come into play this time around.

    They obviously realized that releasing iOS and a new phone on the same day was a bad idea, hence the three-day lead. But also notice, regardless of what problems they had, that the pre-order for iPhone 4 went on much earlier than for 3GS.

    I think smart idea would be releasing it around 1:00 AM PDT to avoid the peak time, especially since literally millions of people will be accessing their servers to update.

    Then again, they should have been prepared for last Tuesday, as well, let alone the disaster that was upgrading to iOS 2.0.
