    After downloading iOS 5 it has been backing up my phone for no joke 3 hours. Give up and try again or keep it going?

    I really don't see what the problem is. I plugged in about 3 hours ago and IOS5 downloaded in 14 minutes and finished updating my iphone within an hour.

    When was the last time you did a complete backup of your iPhone? If you haven't done one in a while it will be a long, painful few hours.

    I'm at the "Backing up "iPhone"" loading bar which doesn't seem like it's moving :(

    I'm going through the same thing. Backed mine up last night, trying to eliminate this problem. Downloaded file in 4 hours. Now backing up for the last 20 mins.

    I've been dealing with this problem for 6 hours! I just backed up. It never gets past the backup phase. Any ideas?

    7 minutes to download and two hours so far to install on final sync now. I think.
