iPhone takes forever to backup

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...
