"The iPhone software update server could not be contacted." ARGH!

After postponing updating my iPhone to 2.0 today this is the message I'm now getting in iTunes.

I waited all day since I was in with clients and potential clients from 7am almost straight through to 3:30pm and now I'm p*ssed!

Anyone have any suggestions? Clearly, I've got internet connection just fine and I can access the iTunes store no problem.

Since you've been working all day, you probably haven't been able to follow the news that Apple's servers seem to be overwhelmed by the popularity of the iPhone.

There was some post about "don't disconnect"...or you might brick it. So I'd do some more forum reading before you go much further.

That's ok, I've got another hour of work here sitting in front of my PC before I'm done for the day - glad I brought the PowerBook with me so I can just let it do its thing for an hour if need be.

I'm telling you guys, that tip I posted a bunch of threads down does work. I've had a few family members do it as well; it's just patience.
