I am running version 2.0.2 right now and want to upgrade to the newest version. But when I start the upgrade it says "backing up" and keeps going forever. it gets about a third of the way done then seems to freeze or stop without any explaination. anyone know what's going on here?

Try not syncing it and instead put it as manual.

I'm not sure what you mean Emerica. When i plug my phone into my computer it says "a newer version software is available. Would you like to upgrade now?" i just click yes.

If you do not backup on a regular basis the backup process could take a real long time, some people have reported hours. That is one of the major fixes in the upgrade you are trying to get. Do the following two things to help your upggrade

1- Read the below in regard to speeding up your backup. It does work.

2- Before updating your software make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed.

Good luck
