    It is out officially as of this morning, but I think Apple has pulled it in order to take some load off of their servers. I had to click the check for update buttong several times before it hooked me up. Now, however, I'm locked out of my phone because it can't connect to the itunes store for the final step of 2.0 installation (update has already been downloaded). I would recommend not updating right now - wait maybe 24 hours for the dust to settle - I've been unable to use my phone now for 3 hours...

    Same Problem

    I had the same problem - however I took the advice above and just clicked several times - It worked about 5 clicks later.

    Its downloading now - hopefully there aren't any snags... I am too impatient to wait until tomorrow :) Its was all I could do just to keep my original iPhone and not buy the 3G. No way i could wait on 2.0!

    im worried something bad has happend..

    clicked to install 2.0 error message came up with some rubbish about it not being able to back up.. did i want to continue.. i clicked yes.. WIPED my phone (dont know if thats normal) then about 20mins later the plug into itunes picture came up (just like when i first bought the phone) the phone showed up in itunes and where the sync information is it now say iphone in big letters.. with the error message saying it cannot access itunes

    What is happening.. i dont want my iPhone to die (even tho its being a right B*tch today)

    I don't want to sound rude, but I might have backed off at the point where it said "can't/won't backup" My phone is also in unactivated hell. The real irony is I should have used the unofficial from yesterday...brutal.

    The real irony is that all these things that are supposed to "just work"...just aren't.

    From what i read they didn't officially release it yet so i wouldn't bother updating to 2.0 untill you hear more people telling you 2.0 works fine. i'm not risking it yet and i'll let the people who do tell me when it works, also btw, will it erase my jailbreaked items?

    I should have gotten the unofficial upgrade yesterday, but I don't mind waiting for the all-clear before wading in.
