    Why is it taking so long? Mine has 6 hours remaining... Unacceptable.

    With everyone updating their iPhones, Touches, iPads, updated IOS apps, Apple TVs, Macs and Mac Apps, and launching iCloud it's not surprising. Now sure how wise it was to release everything all at once, but I guess they are too interdependent.

    With 30% of the global cellphone market... I'm sure its slow because half of them are trying to update their phones...

    I restarted my router and it went significantly faster. it initially said 70 minutes, then went down to 15 minutes after I did that. Maybe you guys should try that.

    Wow I'm surprised at the times you guys are reporting. Mine said 2 hours, and 2 hours was all it took. Enjoying iOS 5 on my 3GS. Can't wait for my 4S to arrive on Friday!

    What pisses me off is when Apple has a server error and it wants you to try again later. Ok, then don't go thru that damm backup process... just start where you left off. :mad:

    Going on 6 hours trying to update an iPad...

    How are some of these download times even possible? I had to download twice 2 hours after it was released and each time took 12 minutes.
