Anyone else having this issue right now? I'd much rather have iTunes do the install than have the phone take care of itself.

Server load and network availability on Apple's end is probably maxed out... try again later.

And yeah, it came out at 1PM eastern/10am Cupertino time...

Updated OTA. Downloaded in seconds (Thanks, company WiFi!), but stuck on "Preparing Update" afterwords took quite a while - about 8 minutes. In reboot and update mode now.

iTunes finally sees it after a few open/close of the program.

iPhone said it was 100 mb, iTunes shows it at 2.25 gb. Coming in at 5 megs/second thanks to FiOS. :)

Because iTunes will download/install the full version of the iOS - Over The Air is a delta... only downloading changed portions of the OS.

I'd much rather that... something more of a clean install even though it's not a format and install type procedure, than a patch.
