Just got new 4S pre-ordered; I think it was general system overload probably ATT to activate phone took about 4hr,  then I still had to set up.  But I set up as using restored data, supposed to set up as new phone 1st.  Waited almost an hour to talk to Apple to find out.  Now trying to download new iPhone software which should take 2minutes but will take 3hrs cause everyone in the world is also doing it.  
Everyone else in the same boat?

    It's not working, same problem as before, it does not recognize my Apple ID and password, now that I've restored everything back to factory setting, spent 3 hours downloading.  Apple support people have all gone to sleep.
    Anyone else have the same problem?

    Accepted Solution

    My guess is that the answer to that question is Yes. When Apple came out with the point release for Lion I had trouble getting that because I assume that everyone was also getting it.

    If you're using 3G to get the software, what you can do, which might be faster is to go back to hooking it to iTunes on your PC or Mac or if you have wireless in you home or office see if that might be faster. If it's really A&T that's the problem, one of these other solutions should help.
