Restore to iOS 4 How To?
Hey all, I recently found this forum and it's been bookmarked!
Here is my deal...
Yesterday I updated my Verizon iPhone 4 to iOS 5 beta 1. I live in an "Extended" Verizon area so as soon as I completed the update I was not able to activate my phone. I had to drive 50 miles (100 miles round trip) so I could hit a Verizon tower to activate the iPhone.
Assuming there will be Beta 2, etc will I have to go through this process now everytime?
What if I want to restore to iOS 4 - is it going to wipe out the programming?
Is there a way to back up and restore the programming information?
Thanks in advance.

Well, when I had my Android device I could go in and program the phone number and other special codes manually. I've searched high and low on google and for the life of me can't find a way to manually program that information into the iPhone. So each time I update to a new Beta of iOS 5 I am going to have to drive 100 miles. Sure wish I would have thought about that sooner.
What I'm trying to avoid or find a way to do is avoid having to activate with the Verizon tower each time I do a beta update.

I also know everytime you restore you have to active regardless if you restore to a back up ( just happen today ) mine non JB 4.3.3 I did a hard reset because the phone froze then it got stuck on apple logo had to put into recovery mode to get iTunes to see it ?? Freaking weird lol
What if u JB iOS 5 ? I know it's tethered but does it bypass the activation screen ?
