    Ok, this is something I'm wondering and if anyone knows it may be Sam ;)

    I have about 80 phones I would like to upgrade to iOS6 in the first round. Having everyone do the upgrade through iTunes is preposterous amount of bandwidth. Is there a downloadable link somewhere where I can download, put on a network share here, and then prompt users to grab it?
    Know of such a thing Sam?

    Matt you do know you don't need to own a separate Iphone for each person you need to call.

    For those in the dev program yeah, but that requires the iTunes link, you can't just pull it as an FTP type file. That IPSW listed above may be the same one, dunno. But you still need to run it from iTunes that way.

    I get that. Just the concept of 100 users downloading a 600Mb fileset is.. let's just say, there isn't always that much bandwidth available!
