    Started with iCloud and it did about 2 pages of apps. Then I got a message saying that restore was incomplete and that I'd have to connect to iTunes to complete.

    So I did that about an hour ago, and it is still syncing apps (step 7 of 7): waiting for items to copy.

    When I check the iPad there are many, many apps still in "waiting" mode. I am thinking of walking away for a few more hours and seeing if it resolves, but I thought once I connected to iTunes it would move much faster. At this rate it might take all day :eek:

    Anyone else? This is for a 64 G AT+T (have not even tried the data plan part yet), and it is a little over 1/2 full.

    Mine says 3 hours on restoring settings and it's already been running for quite awhile...

    It might be that the server is a little busy!
