    I got my brother to install 2.0 on his iPhone, it got a little scary because the update took a really long time. Then when it was done the phone wasn't activated anymore and iTunes wouldn't recognize it. He had to restart his computer and re-dock the iPhone, then it started syncing everything back over. He had to do another sync again because apparently you need to tell iTunes to sync your apps over. Now he's got AOL's AIM app and Super Monkey Ball on his iPhone and I'm so jealous!

    I am downloading 7.7. Thanks. I will report if that fixes my problem.
    Working. Has gotten further than it got before. It is "preparing the iPhone for software update." This seems to be taking minutes, not seconds or tens of seconds. Updating. Nice progress bar, looks like minutes. Verifying. Updating firmware. No bar. Looks like it will more like "preparing" than "updating." Restoring the data is the time consuming step. Tens of minutes. 35+ minutes and counting.

    After fifity minutes I hit a hard stop and had to pull the plug. When I plugged it in again, I got a nasty message but it is synching. At least this time, I can see the progress.
