    Apple truly have become the new Microsoft. Or maybe that should be RIM.
    Tell me when the last time MS or RIM's entire user base is downloading a firmware file 600-900MB plus the entire Mac user base downloading OSX 10.7.2 775MB PLUS all the other traffic they're getting from normal use. The answer would be NEVER and if they ever did they would crash rather than just slow down. This amount of server traffic is only something MS could dream of... but no one is out there hitting the download button on hundreds of millions of Windows phones (b/c not that many exist lol) along with hundreds of millions more downloading a new version of Windows.

    Go home and study the sheer magnitude of what you're talking about before making any more ridiculous claims.

    If Apple really cared about their users,
    they'd implement something like OTA updates so everyone wouldn't be slamming the servers all at once.

    oh... wait....

    I can't get past the Find My iPhone screen in the setup. No matter which option I choose, I hit next and it does nothing. Has anyone heard of this problem or have any suggestions??

    I've been trying over and over and over and over, rinse and repeat and I've been trying all suggestions and nothing I do works. I want this updated before I go to the doctor today and it looks like it won't happen.

    Go to the Reset menu on your iPhone or iPod and erase all content and settings... That takes away the backup time to 2sec

    I was able to download the update, but then a bar pops up that says "backing up iphone" and it takes literally FOREVER to completely load, its moving sooooo slow that i had to stop it. Does anyone else have this problem????
    Unplug it plug it back in and only right click on the device name and select backup

    I got the 3002 error 3 times but now it's good

    I guess im lucky, did at the first try, no errors or anything, it took longer to download the firmware than the actual update process.

    Brilliant! All the Hype. A massive huge enormous new state of the art server farm. And it all falls over at the first attempt. If they can't cope with the early adopters clamouring for iOS5 how on earth will they cope when everyone turns on their iCloud account?

    Apple truly have become the new Microsoft. Or maybe that should be RIM.
    I wouldn't worry about icloud.


    Apple's iCloud service runs on Amazon's elastic cloud and Microsoft Azure, according to a report by The Register.
    Rumors that Apple was using the two platforms to host iCloud started circulating in June, after the company released the first details about the service. Sources close to the deal have now confirmed the rumors, but said neither Amazon nor Microsoft are allowed to talk about it, according to The Register.
