    I have downloaded ok, but keep getting stuck at "verifying update with Apple". :-(

    I had some issues trying to download the update. It kept stopping at different points (80mb, 150mb, etc.) - I just kept trying and it finally made it all the way. I am sure their servers are getting hammered right now from everybody trying to do the update.

    I'm just going to way until later. I don't feel like trying to make it through when the servers are getting slammed.

    WTF? I can't update to 4.01 or 4.1 due to a failure to connect to Apple's servers. I can download the sw but the verification servers keep failing.

    Did the same to mine.

    Solution:
    Download from another source. Not Itunes.
    Connect iPhone to Itunes
    If using a MAC, click hold down ALT and click RESTORE.
    Window should pop up, locate the downloaded version.
    Click restore.
    Done!ios4.0.1
