    Here's a new one, just started last night. Signal bounces from WiFi to 3G on and off continuously. Can't seem to hold the connection. I suspect as a result, the battery plummets. It was down almost 20% within the first 35 minutes of taking it off the charger this morning.

    Thoughts?

    Have you reset network settings?

    I'm about to. I wanted to turn off WiFi altogether to see what difference that made. And with WiFi off, the battery meter doesn't budge.

    I wonder what causes something like that out of the blue?

    Upon further investigation it looks like it's something with my router. Resetting network settings didn't fix anything, so I pulled out my VZW MiFi - and it's hanging on just fine without affecting the battery. I wonder if something changed on the router......

    Sorry to have bothered y'all with this since it now appears to have nothing to do with the beta. <sigh>

    Maybe factory reset the router? Or it could be, and I've seen this in the past, beta 4 breaks compatibility with your brand router. It's a remote chance, but it can happen. I know on 4.2, my Airport Extreme Base Station always dropped speeds tremendously. Resetting it would fix it. A new 4.3 update fixed the issue.

    Seems odd it worked fine for 3 days. Then again, this is technology. I'll try resetting the router & see what happens.

    Did you checked both iphone settings?? I remember in beta 3 i stopped getting messages from my wife and after checking imessage settings I realized the " receive at" field was showing our apple email address, not the cellphone number, we remove that email address from imessage and everything went back to normal, not this time though...

    that was exactly my problem back then, get rid of the email, just leave your phone number, anyway I think I fixed my problem, I went ahead and deleted my icloud account from my iphone, my wife and I have the same email address for icloud but I'm not actually using it ( still sync everything with mobileme) and as soon as I did that all messages started to work, both ways.
    Try first to log out of that apple id address in imessage settingd since you're actually using an iphone and not an ipod/ipad, if this doesn't fix the problem then take a look at icloud, even though you said you two use different addresses but ir might be worth a try.

    I unplugged the router, plugged it back on - all is good. (It then proceeded to play hell with one of the pc's, but I got that fixed eventually too.)

    Ok so my coworker and I messed around with the settings and we got my iMessage to function perfect. The error with iMessage was killing my battery since it was continuously trying to send a message which wouldn't go through. Now I see a serious improvement in my battery life.
    I will say this I am extremely unhappy with this beta only bc of my Bluetooth streaming skips like crazy. I use this as my primary source of music in my car and this annoys me .
    Bluetooth profile/streaming is my only gripe at present time.

    -wifi sync sometimes doesn't work, error 50, relate to pictures
    - half my songs missing album artwork
    -Bluetooth streaming very skippy
    -dictionary is no longer integrated into the copy/paste menu after restore (might be just for me)
    -cannot create new lists on reminder
    -overall the UI, doesn't seen as smooth as 4.3.3
    -safari in private mode, cannot connect to YouTube and Facebook

    Well under beta 4 looks like I'm still having the issue I was having before connecting to my carrier's plan settings. So I have a monthly plan through my carrier and you update it via the Settings, Cellular Data tab there is a View Account button. When you click it, it pulls up your plan via the web interface so you can make changes. I wasn't able to open it on beta 2 it would give me an error. I tried on Wfi, 3G, tried three days in a row. I ended up making the changes when I went back to 4.3.3 before doing the beta 3 install. I'm now on beta 4 and again I have the same problem so looks like it's not fixed yet.

    I've used the dictionary pretty often, and it actually is still integrated into the copy/paste. Maybe a reboot or reinstall will help?

    Overall, the beta does still have its bugs (especially in the photos.app and messaging.app) but it is definitely stable enough and the battery life is good enough for it to be used as a daily driver. I'm hoping it only gets better with the following releases.

    odd..

    wifi sync works flawlessly for me AND i just synced 727 photos without a hiccup

    all music has synced great as well with all album art

    dictionary has always worked since beta 1 (for me)

    overall UI experience is just as smooth/fast as 4.3.3 (now)

    *very strange how these betas differ from one device to another
