  2. how are you downloading it? wireless?
     
  3. Nope, hooked up to my laptop with USB

  18. Step 1 - Downloading - Creating your own copy of the software on your computer so it can be installed on the phone. This means the software has to be copied across the Internet (from Apple's servers to your computer's hard drive). During the download you can still use the phone.

    Step 2 - Installing the update - This is when the software is copied from your computer's hard drive to the phone's internal flash memory over the USB cable. This part takes about 15 minutes and this is the stage that locks you out of the phone.
