I have an iPhone 3G with around 12GB on it (lots of music ) and around 50 apps which today decided to experience the stop running apps and loose all media problem. Step one is to try to do a restore in iTunes. One small problem. I kicked off that restore 3.5 hours ago and it is still running! The backup was performed just yesterday, and the apps were working this morning, so I know that the problem hadn't presented until after the backup. Backups usually take me around 30-45 minutes. What is the average time others have seen for doing a restore? I'm concerned that it blew up and is just spinning wheels now.
