    Ok while downloading the 3.0 software update, I began to backup my iPhone. But the last 2 times i tried, it would stop about halfway. So when the download was done it was backing up the phone. And it froze at about halfway. Should I unplug it and try it again? Or should I unplug and try to Shift+Restore to the files? If so where are they saved.

    Update: Ok so in about 30 seconds backingt up boosted and started again. Then a minute later it stopped and Gave me an error sying something like 'The iPhone activation servers are down' :(

    Hi,

    I read on another discussion that if you delete you old back up files and then start a fresh back up then it works!

    I've tried it and it does work! Happy days!

    Glad (for lack of a better word) to see I am not the only one suffering from this. Although the two times I have tried to backup, it has more or less stalled around 5% to 10% complete.

    Where would I find the previous backup files to try what is mentioned above?

    Hi,

    You can find the previous back ups when you press cmd and , in itunes under the section called devices.

    Hope that helps

    I have no idea what any of you guys are talking about.

    I successfully DL'ed and installed 3.0, played with it a bit, and now this is my second time syncing after I downloaded the updates to a bunch of Apps on iTunes and now it seems stuck at 1/4th the way for the past 20 min.

    I didn't get any notice to clean install my phone when it was updated soo I assume it just restored from back-up.
