    Just got it installed last night. It's running smooth, I like the new notifications, I was going to hold out putting it on my iPad 2 but I just might so I can do some testing between devices.

    You have to Alt-click RESTORE, not Update. I know this because I was in the same situation at first.



    Sure, I'll register your device for free. I only pay $99/year to have these sorts of privileges, but you're totally deserving of a freebie, so sure, I'll activate your device at no charge. /sarcasm/
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    You cannot go back. The baseband on the phone is automatically upgraded.
    Yes you can! I just did it to see Apple is still signing 4.2.8 so all you have to do is Option click the restore button and select the 4.2.8 ipsw.

    Weird.It worked using my friends hp laptop. I was using a macbook. Maybe it was the beta itunes i have on here? who knows. No more messing with my iphone for me. Android kind of spoiled me, as it was really easy to fix if you messed up

    So I bought one off of ebay for like $3...installed the beta and within like 10 minutes was on my way to going back to 4. Without everything fully functional it feels like I have to do to many things to accomplish simple tasks.

    Loving iOS 5. Works great minus a couple bugs. Facebook messaging seems to be buggy.

    I once clicked on an image in the Facebook app and i got stuck in this neverending loop of opening the image, over and over and over and over... had to restart the phone LOL but it hasn't happened again... it's almost entertaining haha

    TEN minutes? Seriously? TEN minutes? What can you begin to notice about a new OS in TEN minutes?

    SMH wow... To each his own, but wow...

    It was an exaggeration....but it was a very short time. It just seems kinda useless without all the features turned on server-side.

    I have downloaded and installed on an iPad 2 and iPhone 4 gotta say I love the notification system and tabbed browsing although the iPhone is laggy but that is just the beta version I'm sure it will be ironed out. And also looks like the stock and weather widgets are missing on iPad

    This is day two for me now and it's still amazing. I played a lot of games last night and it was so nice not having text messages get in the way of game play and pause my session. That use to cause me to die a lot in zombieville USA.

    i installed it two days ago and love it so far.

    the battery seems to be draining a LITTLE bit faster when awake, but when asleep it does good. i lost 10% in 4hours while in pocket and 10 % while playing with it (wifi, personal hotspot, web, ect.)

    lots of nice new features
