Is it really just that busy? I have been trying to downlod the IOS 5 software and it has been stuck on Contacting The iPhone Software Update Server for hours. Upgraded to iTunes 10.5, rebooted, turned off Firewall, Hammered the Update button, etc. I don't know what to do.
I called the apple store and apparantly many many many people can not connect to server because there is way to many people trying to connect to the server, more then they can keep up with but said they are currently working on the problem. I have been trying all evening as well:(
The update was released nearly 15 hours ago and I still can't connect the to servers. I have tired on my iPhone 4s, my wifes iPhone 4 and also through iTunes and nothing. I hope this gets resolved quickly. Its 0200 here surely there isnt that many people this time of the night.
