I think I should download a fresh iTunes beta 7 copy from the same website?

OTA was rock solid. Took about ten minutes for the whole process! Though, I did the OTA without my phone being plugged in, and I started it with 63% of my battery remaining... when it finished, I had 70%... lol
I don't have music in my iPhone's Music app (I use Spotify), so I can't comment on that. I didn't have the iMessage password problem, though.

Updated my iPhone 4 last night and so did one of my buddies and we noticed the iMessage problem. After reading the comments on these threads I too have been experiencing the Music problems. I plugged the iPhone into iTunes Beta 6 and it prompt me that i did not have the proper version.

Based on what was said previously, I skipped the OTA from beta 6 and restored as new via iTunes (beta 7). No errors with iMessage so far. Can't comment on the Music portion as I use Pandora and other alternatives for that. As far as overall speed goes, beta 7 seems faster than the last version. Stability-wise, still testing...

Chinese & Japanese keyboards work. No more crashing when trying to use them.
All keyboards likely work. Haven't tested all of them.

Does anyone have issues with iMessages disappearing in a thread?
For example, my girlfriend will iMessage me, i hear the notificaion and it shows I have an unread message on the app but when I go to the thread, nothing is there.
I'm able to see a preview of the message in the notifcation pulldown , and the only way for it to show up is by accessing it from the notication bar, or by going to the thread, and scrolling up until it finally shows up.
I disabled my pin prior to upgrading to Beta 7, and it still happens occasionally.

I hope people are rebooting at least twice before testing their phones. I notice this clears up a lot of stuff. Mysteriously, something ate over 1 gig of storage space. The other yellow bar in iTunes when I have it connected (wi-fi or hard-wired) grew from 1.x gigs to 2.5 gigs. No way a small 70 meg OTA update increase it that big. This begin after iTunes match was enabled, which I disabled because it sucks right now. Time to restore and see if that clears that up.

The OverDrive Media app still is not fully working, in Beta 6 it didn't load any books at all. Now in beta 7 they load but you can only read the first page of each chapter.

That just allows the messages app to load after sliding. Its not actually a "quick reply"
I did request that feature (considering they have the twitter thing now) where on the notification center or on the homescreen, that a popup would show (like the twitter popup) and you could quickly reply. But in all honesty that would probably show in iOS 6.
