I tried three times in a row and got this message yesterday. Finally I gave it two hours and tried again and got through without any problem. Overall I can’t say I’m blown away with the new iPhone. Siri is impressive but questionably useful, the battery seems to have gone down at the same rate as before, a whole bunch of my apps were lost in the transition and needed to be redownloaded and setting up iCloud was confusing. The new notifications seem like the best feature by far (they stack when the phone is off) and the camera does seem a bit sharper on initial impression. In the end, I didn’t have huge expectations for my upgrade from 4 to 4S and I’ve had it for all of 24 hours, so we shall see. With that said, I got sent a Samsung Galaxy S II yesterday to test and am much more impressed with the 4S than that. I still find Android clunky and it’s hard to tell where the Samsung installed software ends and the OS begins. Now that iOS 5 has notifications, the last remaining Android strength seems to be widgets … Can’t be long.
