My 3G iPhone is currently on 2.2 and I have tried several times to upgrade it to 2.2.1. When I connect my iPhone I'm given the option to upgrade, i select to do so and then a backup begins. My backups have always taken FOREVER (hours) and I usually cancel out of them during a sync but this backup is in a pop-up window so I can't cancel it. But the backup will not complete and cancels it's self and states "Backup can not complete because the iphone was disconnected." The iphone is never disconnected but since the backup errored the update is canceled. Is there a way to continue the update without backing up the phone... and without a restore? Or is there a way to correct the backup issue. I do have close to 5-gigs of music but few apps. Total I'm using a little over 6.5 gigs of my available 8 gigs. Thanks in advance for all the help.
