    I want to download a 20+ min Futurama episode that is 600GB off the iTunes app using my iPhone 4. How long does it normally take for it to download using WiFi?

    Really depends on your network speed more than on the iPhone.

    I'm going to assume you mean 600MB?

    Yes.

    I'm thinking of heading near my nearest Apple Store and downloading the show there. Borders is too slow. Say the network gives me 8-10Mbps speed? How long for episodes the size of 600MB and 1.63GB?

    Don't have WiFi in my house right now. No laptop either. Just wondering now because I'm heading to the library or Apple Store today and want to get an idea in advance before I go there.

    If you'll get on an 8-10 Mbps connection I'd guess around 8 minutes for Futurama and 18 minutes for the larger file.

    Here's a link that may help. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1577

    Isn't the max download speed of the iPhone somewhere around 8Mbps?

    Isn't that app known to be notoriously wrong?

    Can't be. My home connection is 10Mbs and I average 9.3 on my ip4

    Strange. I've got ~12Mbps internet at home and can only pull slightly over 8Mbps with my iPhone. Every other computer gets the full speed.

    I've already proved the 8mbps theory wrong twice :p

    The max download of the cell network is 7.2 Mbps for the 3Gs and the 4. WiFi is 54 Mbps for 3Gs and I think about 111 Mbps for the 4.

    Depends on the N chip. Basic N is 150Mbps down, full N is 300 Mbps, so I am going to assume 150 for iPhone 4.

    My home broadband is 24MBPS. My phone can only peak at 12MBPS as well, and averages at 10.
