    if you know the time of the release then what is the time zone for the release.. this is a big piece of information to leave out.. and how is it this particular site got a confirmation and everyother website is still guessing.. the truth is no one knows for sure when it will be out today and that’s that.. it will be out when apple releases it!

    Started downloading, saw it was going to take an hour to finish so I carried on doing other things in the meantime. Very excitedly went to see if it had finished downloading – it has but now my phone is stuck with a ‘trying to connect to iTunes’ image on the screen (and cannot connect to iTunes properly…keeps telling me to check my network settings. I can only make emergency calls, as I appear to have no network coverage. Apple problem or O2 problem?
