...so who's had a chance to update? My iPhone 4 has been trying to install it for the last hour. Apparently, everyone updating has jammed Apple's servers. :mad:

I tried a few times to update the IPad, finally gave up. Called my son who works at Apple/Cupertino and he said give it a day and let things quiet down. I'm in no hurry. I did get the IMac updated, and the 3 Airbooks are starting updates now.

Got it to work on the third try. Nothing too special except for the fact that it drains battery life like no other. I assume it will normalize in a day or two.

After 2 hours later..

I'm now having all sorts of problems....

I was able to finally get the OS updated but my back up which I updated this morning wasn't available and had to back up to April's...

I can't also sync anything from my iTunes.

So is anyone going to set their backup to the cloud? Why or why not?

I've been a MobileMe user from day one. From the standpoint of synching things like calendars, contacts, and email between devices it's been flawless and seamless and I would expect iCloud to do the same. As far as backup is concerned I have mixed feelings. Cloud storage is fine for things like documents and other small files. The downside,at least for me, of using it for photo storage is the time it takes to upload large amounts of data. I've only got a standard dsl connection with 3mb down, and 768k up, and it's just too painfully slow to get gigs of info up there.

I've got my stuff on the cloud - no complaints. From what I can see (which isn't much) it works as Apple said it would.

I had major issues updating to ios5 but finally managed to get it done.

My phone would be stuck on verifying / backing up for hours then would crash my entire system. I had to open a new user profile in windows to restore, then update then put in my back up contacts and everything else.

At this point I have only an iphone4 but havnt used iCloud yet..

I havnt backed anything up there either.

I meant set the iphone to back up to the cloud or to the local computer.
