iPhone takes forever to backup
      #30772 - 07/13/08 03:05 PM

The iPhone takes forever to backup, but syncing data is pretty fast. What is it doing when it's backing up?

Hello FMN,

Backing up is exactly what it sounds like - making an extra copy of the data on the iPhone in case it is lost.

Does it take a long time every time, or just with some syncs? How much time are we talking about?

I have to say mine is taking a long time as well. My 2G iPhone backed up in a snap (hardly knew it had happened). The 3G takes at least 5 minutes every time I connect it via USB to iTunes. Looking at the backup folders, the 3G iPhone back folder is about 76 megs while the 2G's were 7 megs. Wonder why...
