    It won't be available until 10 AM PST. Just be sure to have your iPhone backed up, and install the new OS. It will be available to download with any iTunes that has upgraded to version 9.2+

    I'm sure if you have your iTunes acct accessible by multiple computers, and you can sync your phone with your itunes at work... you should be just fine, just make sure you sync before you upgrade to itunes 9.2 and then d/l the new os

    syncing is part of the entire process, which includes backing up...

    No one needs to walk you through. Just hook your phone up to iTunes it will say that an update is available. Hit download and that's it. It backs up everything when it gets ready to install. You can take a nap while it's doing it. Not hard at all.

    Seriously, this is apple were talking about.

    Plug it in, click check for updates.

    Boom.

    Just back it up to be safe, which mine does automatically everytime I connect.

    It backs up already before the new install, if it doesn't automatically start to download or asks you, hit the "Check for Update" button on your iPhone Device summary screen.
