    Tried multiple times to download it through my iPhone to no avail, it gets about 1/3 way through and stops.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    My blue bar has been sitting with about a centimeter to go and it saying "Preparing to Update..." for about 30 minutes.

    Not sure if I should power cycle the phone or what.

    I might just have to wait for the download links to show up, it's much easier doing it through iTunes

    Just wait a day or two. It's like this every time a new version of iOS is released. Why can't people learn to be patient?
