    Anyone having issues? On super fast connection at work and only got half way through 2488 pictures since this morning...

    This is in iPhone 5.

    Heard someone restored his 25 GB iCloud account in about 5 hours.

    Remember there is just a LITTLE bit of load on the data centers...2 MILLION iPhone 5s were reportedly delivered today. Even if that only 1/2 million were actively setting themselves up during the day via iCloud that is a LOT of load.

    Is it really that important you get all 2500 picture back in 2 hours? 4 hours? They are there and can load over the weekend. It will be fine.

    cschmelz is correct. The iCloud servers are being hammered. You can't do anything about it except wait.

    Seeing the same thing. I have 2000+ photos/videos in my camera roll and left it to restore overnight. I expected it to be done when I woke up but it's still restoring almost 24 hours later. I guess there's plenty of us all doing the same thing.

    Mine finally got finished Saturday night, so about 36 hours total to restore (9 hours or so off WiFi)

    Can't complain really. That is a lot of data and it worked perfectly...Everything in it's place, everything working perfect w/ zero effort.
