Which version of the iPhone firmware are you using? If it is a version earlier than 2.1 you can expect extremely long backups. After the 2.1 update, the backups were much better but take longer depending on the number of Apps you have installed and how long it has been since your last update. Hope this helps.

i have the iPhone 3G and i have tried to update it at least three times with the latest and greatest.
today, i started at 9:00 a.m. and will probably have to stop it (again) when i leave at 4:30 p.m. because it will most likely not be done by this time.
i am wondering if this is normal. i saw the update on an iPod Touch with the multiple application option so i know it is possible.
my iTunes "Backing Up iPhone"... just looks frozen - the bar is not even moving, but in the task manager, it is "running."
oh yes, and i have no idea how to make a "thread" of my own.
i am sorry.

I would restore the phone in DFU mode, and probably setup as new, if you don't have game saves or texts you can't lose and if you have everything synced so the setup as new is relatively painless.
