  1. Just downloaded 2.0 for iPhone

    Got the restart page (pic of plug in to iTunes) & now it is eternally suck in “Accessing iTunes Store”

    WTF? my iPhone is useless now. Anyone else getting past this?

  2. Been trying for last 20 minutes to “Learn More” about it to buy, just get an error that the store is unavailable. Running 7.7 iTunes…. everything updated (except my Touch). Must be some heavy demand for the upgrade. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    The Dude abides.

  3. Its not spinning ball.

    After 2.0 upload, the phone is bricked until it reconnects with Apple

    “Accessing iTunes Store” in the iTunes window. Over 20 minutes now.

    Checking on MacRumors, everyone is having this problem

  4. breathe folks…your precious email and phone will come back soon enough. Believe it or not, you will continue to live even though your phone may not be accepting incoming calls for the time being.

  5. Right about now people in Microsoft and RIM are having a good chuckle. Nice way to roll out an upgrade Apple.

    The past 3 days have been uneasy to say the least in having any sort of trust in Apple being a major player supporting corporate America. Where is the communication? Where is release notes? This is ridiculously badly run rollout and if I ran a project like this at work I’d be fired.

    Perhaps Itunes shouldn’t be used as the “NOC” so all things Iphone ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  6. Only Apple could release something so revolutionary, so widely coveted and accepted, and yet still show a dip in stock value. I don’t have any AAPL, but I’ve been watching it for a long time now and just do…not…understand the market people at all. The only reasonable excuse may be the falling of Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae, but, as you all know, Apple’s stock value always chokes near a product release.
