    I just unpacked my iphone 5s tmobile from apple online store.

    I didn't get the unlocked mesg but I pressed restore and now it's installing but it's going to take 2 hours! Are the apple servers overloaded? Download of the firmware file is slow! Any tips?

    You don't even need to update/restore the phone Via iTunes. It's unlocked out the box.

    When I tried earlier this afternoon, iTunes said two hours as well, so I just installed the 7.0.1 OTA instead of waiting for iTunes. Took 3 mins.
