coming from being jailbroken most of my iPhone experience; using iOS 5 betas was/is no different to me than running into tweaks/apps that caused my device to run poorly just because some dev did not know what the hell he was doing... (whew!)

I guess what i'm saying is that this "i must have it immediately", anxiety issue is something i've never had. I'm perfectly content to run 4.3.3 until well after ios5 comes out, and until well after the first jb's come out, just to insure that my iPhone works properly, and doesn't get screwed up. If i was a developer, i'm sure that i would see things differently. That's my rant for today.

Maybe that will work for you, maybe not. Sometimes especially with beta software, different things help different people. Much I think, depends on hardware, carrier, apps, etc....
Hope you get yours right, because iOS5 is great!!

I know this is probably old news since I haven't been on the forums for awhile. I had the problem with iTunes not seeing my iPad. I eventually loaded iTunes beta 4 then went back to iTunes beta 5 and everything was good.
I have the problem where connected by Wifi iTunes wants to either load as new or restore it is just a nuissance because anyone that would do either of thise things shouldn't be running the beta.
bizfox I've had that problem on released firmware. So it is a software issue but not a beta issue. Give this a try and see if it helps. Atleast once a month when I'm getting ready to put my phone to charge for the night I kill all processes in the app switcher. Then I connect the power plug and power the phone off so it charges while it's off for the entire night.
The whole people are too eager thing I learned a long time ago being JBen on my 1st gen iPhone that you don't always need the latest and greatest firmware. I waited 1 sometimes 2 versions before upgrading because setting up your JBen system wasn't as easy then. So as a result I run the beta on my iPad but my iPhone is still happily on 4.3.3 JBen and singing.

I noticed this time around that when I restore my testing iPhone as new and have to setup my apple ID during the initial setup process, my apple id/e-mail address is already filled in for me... I don't remember this happening with the previous betas although I didn't try beta 4... does it pull this apple ID from the one currently signed-in to the itunes used to restore the phone? Whatever it is I am happy to have to type that e-mail address one time less in the whole setup process (I use it as a username for almost everything I subscrive to).

I did OTA for beta5 and it worked well. Battery could be better so if beta6 is released later this week I may want to start fresh. Procedural question, when it is mentioned "start as new" do people set up as new phone using 4.3.5, install beta"6" via iTunes then restore from last beta5 backup? If not, what is recommended scenario? Thanks.
battery could be better?? for me, it is the best it has been since 4.2.x
when people are saying "start as new" it is a process that takes place after loading the desired firmware. usually with no backup, i assume. this is how i prefer doing it, most do not

I don't have the patience for that lol. I have always done a restore (from the iCloud when going from b4 to b5) and never had any issues.
Everyone has their preference though.

Hello all, new to the forum (as you can see!). Interesting thing I noticed last night in the App Store on my iPad 2 (wifi only). In the upper right hand corner, where the search box is, the "x" button doesn't clear any text. It has to be manually be deleted.
Secondly, holding down the home button on the home screen doesn't make the icons shake so that an app can be deleted.
Weird, but not concerned, as this is part of beta testing! Thanks!
