    My back-up takes about 4-6 minutes with the 2.0.1 update.

    Search the forum, and read the forum rules:

    1. You didn't search

    2. You are not using a constructive title in the thread

    3. You are using inappropriate language

    I'd give my input to this thread, but I have already in several other threads that you would have found today if you searched.

    Give more details. Do you have windows or mac? which version of itunes?

    For some reason my iMac leopard os takes forever (although I haven't tried to sync with the new firmware 2.0.1)....only the 2.0 firmware.

    When I connect my iphone 3g 2.0 and connect to my windows laptop, it syncs in 20 seconds.

    You should get a blackberry. Then you won't have this problem. Stupid Apple! What were they thinking when they made backups of important information stored in your phone!!?

    If you don't want your backups to take so long you're going to have to remove all the apps you got from the app store.

    Yeah, before you couldn't download apps from the app store. :rolleyes:

    For The Last Time... SEARCH!

    Since Firmware 2.0, backups are performed daily. They store all your Apps' information for your user. In OS X they can be disabled using a Terminal Command. There may be a way to do this in Windows, but I'm unaware of it. Use the search field in the upper right of the forums to see if there is one, or check at TUAW.com as they are on top of these things.

    Once disabled, you will have to perform a backup by right-clicking on the iPhone in iTunes and selecting "Back Up". Otherwise, you may loose settings and saved information for your apps.

    aneftp - The reason you don't have to deal with the back up on your XP machine is because it is likely not the iPhone's home machine. It will take some time when you sync with your iMac.

    Why don't you read the thread that you have just started. Everyone is saying just about the same thing.
    GSDJHg;lasdkfakdjshfasdjfasl search the forum! You need to get used to it! It does more good than harm! What's the problem with a long sync?! DON'T SYNC SO OFTEN, ETC!!!!

    Don't encourage the OP. Looks like you need to do a little research too before you post.
