Is anyone else's mobile hotspot not working? My iPad sees the wifi network but won't connect, and over Bluetooth it connects, the blue bar shows up but pages don't load... May be the point I have to roll back, seeing as I actually pay for mobile hotspot.
Its a shame too, because otherwise this beta seems almost perfect.

Hank, does this indeed work the way you think it does? i am having a difficult time understanding exactly what has changed. maybe it's too early haha
another thing.. i kind of wish we had the option to keep certain notifications in the NC, mainly to keep as reminders. also, i still think they should implement the use of the NC shade in lockscreen mode, but only after the device has been unlocked and locked again as the new will be cleared by doing this
hope this makes sense..
Push and local notifications for apps appear in the new Notification Center in iOS 5. Notification Center displays notifications that are considered "unread.” In order to accommodate push and local notifications that have no "unread" status, developers can use their application badge count to trigger a clearing of notifications from Notification Center. When an application clears its badge count (by setting it to zero), iOS 5 will clear its notifications from Notification Center.

Yeah, I'd also like to see the notification stuff on the lock screen, but not sure how that could be done securely. That was always my issue with lockinfo. In order for it to be useful, you couldn't turn off text / email content, for example. But then the info is out there for anyone to see.
I'm going to have to think about that one... great idea, but not sure how to implement it. Having to unlock the screen to see the notifications ON the lock screen seems like a lot of extra/wasted effort...

good point Alli, when Rodville mentioned "plugged into his router" i assumed he had a wireless router. knowing that is not the case now then that makes complete sense why he is unable to wifi sync. not so sure how a wireless card would work, hopefully it will??

i am sure down the road there will be a jailbreak tweak out there that will enable the NC dropdown while in lockscreen mode but like you mentioned security is definitely a concern. also, i would hope that while viewing the NC while in lockscreen and receiving a phone call that the incoming call would override the NC dropdown, which was the issue i had with LockInfo. it did not do it

Hmmm....3G download speeds are slower using beta 4. With beta 3's AT&T carrier profile of 10.2.4, I'd hit 3.5 megs down 95% of the time. Now with beta 4, carrier profile 10.2.6, I maybe hit 1.5 on most occasions. Beta 1 and 2 had similar speeds to beta 4. Let's hope beta 5 brings back those beta 3 speeds.
On the plus side, wi-fi speeds have gone from around 8-9 megs down on all previous betas to around 15-16 on beta 4.

Okay after playing with it for a night, here's what i've found:
1) Battery life is MUCH better after a clean install (no restore from backup this time). My usage and standby times aren't the same anymore. I'll have to check today, but I think battery life is pretty close to optimized.
2) Apps and general UI are still a tad buggy. Nowhere near as bad as betas 1 and 2 (the Chase app works now) but apps still crash from time to time. Scrolling is somewhat jerky, but not unusably so.
3) I'm getting the same bug in the Music app where my artists are barely sorted at all. There doesn't even seem to be too much rhyme or reason to it either.
And @Hobbit, in answer to your question: you don't. I didn't even install all my games on the beta because I knew my old progress would be gone anyways.

I personally have noticed a large decrease in battery life. I havent added any new apps or changed any settings since the last release but i went into a movie last night at 98 % battery my wife had about 93% on her iphone running 4.3.3 and when i left my phone was super hot and down to 26% and i didn't touch it at all . And today i take it off the charger and use it a little bit and bam im at 90-85% .very frustrating.

Those who have great battery life with this beta build - did you restore from backup or do a clean install? Just wondering, because mine is less than ideal thus far.
Also, springboard hasn't crashed in the last 24-36 hours, so perhaps it was something that happens initially when you install the beta.
Oh, and the last feature that has yet be activated is "Newsstand." I'm not really anticipating it much, but it's the last thing that isn't activated.
