Apple is not just updating and authorizing 19 countries this time. This time, they are doing it for 79 different countries. Not even Apple has enough server capacity for those kinds of numbers. <br><br>They should have known better than this, boneheads! This is one hell of an oversight, regardless of circumstances which may have been "overlooked."<br><br>iPhone Tech Support said it will be [at least] until after 7:00 pm EST (10:00 pm west coast) until existing iPhone users can even begin to succesfully download/install a working 2.0 update.<br><br>I was just notified -- for the first time, via iTunes -- a new version of iPhone software (2.0) was available or my iPhone. But when I tried to update (again) I got that same error message (again), it bricked my iPhone (again), and I had to do yet another restore again. <br><br>I give up until later tonight EST! DOH! <br><br>droog<br><br>
I have 2 iPhones sitting on the shelf at the dealer. They have been there since 8:30 AM EST. The cell company server is overwhelmed and they can't even do the billings before proceeding to try and activate the phones. It's been one crazy &$(#$* day but nuttin' I can do about it except wait patiently for a call to come pick up my new iPhone. Maybe tonight, probably tomorrow. <br><br>

Warning iBrick brother ! <br>iTunes found the 2.0 update so I am officially iBricking my son's iPhone to an iBrick !<br><br>Dammit the update on my son's iPhone worked flawlessly <br><br> My Ultimate Amazing Crap !
Aw, Marge, I'm sorry... I know how it is waiting to activate/use a new iPhone. Seriously! <br><br>I had to wait for more than a day to use my shiny new iPhone when they were launched last year. I purchased mine at an Apple Store in a town I was doing some session (studio) work in. I couldn't wait until I got home to purchase because I was afraid they'd run out of 8 GB models. I was told AT&T were authorizing people's iPhone's via telephone support -- for certain locations. Boy was that wrong!<br><br>I thought it rather rude of Apple not allowing you to even play around with the new iPhone before activating... only allowing an intro screen and 1 emergency call.<br><br>So more than a day later I finally got home and activated mine. The resulting anxiety was almost overwhelming. <br><br>Question: What's worse than not having an iPhone? <br>Answer: Having an iPhone but not being able to use it/play with it! <br><br>I definitely feel your pain on this one. Sorry, Ms. Marge! <br><br>Hang in there!<br><br>droog<br><br>BTW, as of now, it looks as though iTunes is finally allowing me the 2.0 update. I guess servers have calmed down a bit at this point. So, I should be horsing around with new apps within the hour! <br><br><br><br><br>
