    Ever since we got the touch, it has always taken ages to back up, but this is just ridiculous.

    DH and I have both recently got the iPhone 4, so we've added all the apps to iTunes, taken the ones we want off, and we're removing the 'grown-up' apps from the touch, and adding some more childrens ones on, so the kids can use it.

    I haven't installed the new software upgrade - is that it?? We're not even using 15% of the capacity, so it's not like it's stacked out with loads of stuff... I've Googled this, and can see lots of different opinions on solutions (though some consider 10 mins to be a long time backing up!), is there a definitive one?

    Thanks

    Thanks HeadReaper - could well be, it's about 5 yrs old, though we did recently upgrade the memory... Will look into that further.



    OK thanks - and I wasn't bumping, at that time, it should have appeared about 5th in New Posts but wasn't showing so I posted again to see if I could make it show. Any idea why it wouldn't show?
