    Ok so I downloaded and updated to ios5 and everything ran smoothly, no errors, no halts. Once I got through the setup to the 3 options of; starting as new iphone, restore from cloud, restore from itunes...I selected "restore backup from itunes. I wanted all my info, pictures, message conversations, recents, and what not to make the move over. BUT once the restore for it completed, the phone does an infinite loop of apple logo, lockscreen, start using iphone over and over again. Then if I unplug it, the apple logo freezes on the screen.

    I have tried setting up as new iphone and then loading the backup, but I get the same result. Anyone else having this issue or know whats going on? Thanks in advance.

    Same problem here

    My phone has been updating since 6pm UK time and its now 10am UK time

    I had a problem with the backup - it kept crashing. After about 10 attempts I reverted to something else (not sure what)

    I lost all of my music and have had to sync that a few times as for some reason it didnt include the music pics etc and all the songs were greyed out

    Have had to come to work phone less while it runs yet again as its putting all the art work back onto the songs and I have rather alot of them! Frustrating
