I am unable to download the 4.2.1 update for ipad from within itunes. I am on a CDMA network, and the 700+MB update is too large to download in one session. Each time the download times out I have to restart from the beginning. Is there some hidden place where I can download the update package with a download manager? I'm going nuts here.

Also, note to Apple: the "Resume" button in the download manager should be renamed "Start all over again, bwahahahah!".
