    Hey all, new Iphone user. Got my 3gs two months ago (should have waited, but at least I get the unlimited data plan.)
    Anyway, as this will be my first os upgrade, how long doesbit usually take to download and install?

    To speed up the process, go ahead and back up your phone now.

    the real matter is how long its gonna take a DOWNLOAD. Usually when everyone finds out it's being released thats when it takes up to 2 hours to download. To Install should be between 20 and 30 minutes.

    Then you have to activate the phone again. That's where I ran into issues last year

    yeah. freakin rediculous how everyone has to download it at the same time. that is part of the reason iphone 4 preorders got bungled up. people never learn.

    Cool. I backed up last night to be safe and transferred all my pics and videos. So the phone has to be re- activated? How does that work?

    Yes, Very true. I can imagine all the nerds feverishly clicking " Check For Updates " as I type and only being teased with the " checking iPhone update servers " status bar followed by " ... 3.1.3 is the current verison ".

    I checked earlier and it was a no go, my bet is that i'll be pushed out at around 2-3PM EST.

    once the iOs4 has finished downloading, your phone will need to be restored and reactivated to install it.

    your computer will do it all, absolutely nothing to worry about.

    I totally agree. I'm not sure why I'm so excited this time, but I can't wait. I keep checking to see if I can download the update yet. I feel pathetic waiting.
