Anybody neem able to download this yet? I keep getting the message " Unable to download cause the servers are temporarily unavailable." I just figured it was due to the large amount of people Downloading this new update but has been going on for a few hours now.

Yeah thats what I did.. Is that not the right course of action? Also I had to download the new 8.2 version of Itunes as well as I had not yet done so. I did so then restarted my computer and went to MY IPHONE on my ituned and it says a new version is ready to update. So I clicked update and thats what happened.

yeah, if you go to your iTunes, plug in your phone, click on your phone, then under info hit update it should walk you thru it....

Sounds like you did the right thing, might be that there are a lot of other people downloading it and it could be bogged down....I got it to download this morning around 10:30 am PST.

I had the same problem. Just keep trying.

I didn't notice much except for the cut and paste, universal search, and voice recorder, personally.

Landscape mode in email, notes and messaging is pretty cool.

Some enhanced features for podcasts (rewind 30 seconds, speed up or slow down speech), which I listen to a lot.

Much better photo management - you can delete or email multiple pictures at a time.

it's more of a refinement than it is a larger number of obvious changes. I think though, it will make a difference in the end....

the changes were little, but once you find them they are awsome. I only have an Ipod Touch, but even the shorter list of changes made the update worthwhile. I can now use my Ipod Touch through blue tooth to listen to in my Ford Escape with the sync system.

yeah, I have an iTouch too, and did the update already. I am waiting for my phone. Got confirmation that it is in the store but they won't let me pick it up till tomorrow....lol

Course I have surgery tomorrow morning, so my hubby will have to get it for me in the afternoon.....
