Thanks for that Gmama, it looks as though it'll be available at around 6pm for us in the UK, so, I'm off up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire. ;)

ITunes showing as 4.3.5 - most current version. still keep going back to check, no change. I can't believe how time this is consuming for me!!
I have both the iPhone 4 32g and ipad2 32g. Trying to convince my 'lo-tech' hubby he really needs a smart phone for work so should 'have' mine and I'll upgrade to 4s (would also prefer white phone to match my iPad) god, this sounds so tragic written down! Into my second week annual leave, way too much time on my hands...

Don't forget to download the latest version of iTunes. Do it now so you can just download iOS5.

No need to keep checking.

As Ms. Poison pointed out, Apple iTunes 10.5 is available now.

iOS 5 will be released Tuesday, October 12th most likely at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. (PDT) as have almost all previous upgrades. :)

If you're restoring from a previous backup your contacts should be there.

Once iOS 5 is out, be sure to use the iCloud sync feature for your Calendar, Contacts, etc. I've been using Apple's Mobile Me for that for several years, syncing all of my Macs, my iPad, iPhone, etc. and would be lost without it!

If you backed up the iPad or iPhone first before updating you can revert to back up. Please provide more information regard the address book issue ( pc or Mac etc etc)so we may assist. I am in Albury , Victoria on way ho me to Brisbane and will update all phones and iPads tomorrow.

Make sure one installs iTunes update first. Then BACK up any devices before installing the iso5 upgrade. After upgrade you then will be asked to restore from back up and if you have more than one you can select the latest. Once completed I recommend holding down the home button and on/off keys until White Apple Logo appears . I only do this as it avoids initial hiccups however most w I'll not bother...... Have fun enjoy
