So. I went out for the afternnon with my folks who are visiting me from the US to distract me from the iPhone 3.0 release. I got home this afternoon expecting to update my phone. I fired up iTunes and was greeted with the joyous message "iphone 3.0 firmware is availabe"!
So I confirmed the update and watched it download at highspeed. I clicked ok, to accept the new terms and conditions and watched it unpack. Next thing I know, the sad message "The iPhone cannot be updated at this time because the iPhone activation server is temporarily unavailable".
Dermo!!! No iPhone joy for me!
I tried again and again to install but no joy for me. I will try again after supper, but I suspect this will take until tomorrow to have the traffic jam solved. I hope Apple learns from this and adjusts for Fridays launch of the 3Gs.
