    Just FYI. If you spend all your time downloading and don't plug in, it wont install the update if your battery is less than 50%.

    Wonder if I will have to redownload once I get my charger.

    If the download had not sucked 30% of my battery I would have been ok. Oh well.

    You just have to plug the phone in and it will complete the install. I had the same problem. Plugged it into a USB port and it finished the update. You do NOT have to redownload.

    I plugged it in and the install was taking so long I had to unplug and leave. Luckily it finished even after I unplugged it. Wonder what would have happened if I had let the battery die in the middle of the instal. Probably very very bad things I assume.
