    It's actually not that strange. Apple (and others) do it for load balancing. Imagine if all hundred-million-plus iOS users tried to download at the exact same time. It would cause havoc for the servers.
    Get a better infrastructure - :P

    I am joking. That is the main reason for it.

    And of course because of server overload the download stopped at 200 mb's.
    Trying again.

    Upgraded a 3GS to 4.2.1. Im connected to my work network, with probably 10 different variations of HP networked printers, All in one, laser, color laser, inkjet including the latest HP Officejet Pro 8500A and non of them appear when I try to use airprint.

    Also only have the 7 regular Text Tones. The supposed new ones are not an option.

    The new tones are iPhone 4 only from what I understand.

    If anyone can post a screenshot of their settings, it'd be helpful for some. I am sure the carrier profile for AT&T is 9.0 and the modem should be 3.10.01. However does it display as 4.2.1 build 8C148?

    OK. Can't post screenshow right now. The build on the 3GS I just upgraded says 4.2.1 8C148a. ATT 9.0 is correct, however my modem says 05.15.04.

    I'm trying to set up my Find My iPhone account and when I do it says that "this apple id cannot be used with mobileme." Any idea why that is? I'm not sure if it would be a 4.2 issue but I know my id and password are right because I just signed in at apple.com.

    Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

    Hey peeps, does anyone know if IPSW file's are region encoded? I'm in the UK and downloaded the 4.2 IPSW file and wondering if it would differ country-to-country? Thanks.

    The GM is exactly the same as the final for iPad and iPhone4, might be for other iterations as well.
