    Hi all,

    First post - I just got my I-Phone 2G 8Gb this morning (woohoo!)
    Sync'd it up with itunes (latest version) and it tells me I can update to 3.0.
    However, every time I try, it gets to the end of "extracting software" and itunes just vanishes off my desktop, shuts itself down.
    Don't have a clue why it's doing this, very frustrating!
    Any advice?

    My handset is an unlocked one, would that be causing issues?
