    Update, the Google+ application crashes when you try to access anything from the splash.

    It's not an iOS issue... it's an app issue. Google will (have to) fix it.

    due to my camera being a little wonky i decided to restore as new device. that threw me into an iTunes error 3194, which was corrected by editing my host file

    seems to be a trend; do OTA update, then restore as new when i get the chance

    camera now working great! battery life still great!

    also it seems WiFi sync is considerably faster than before, for me

    I wiped my phone because it wouldnt show the new update. After it loaded again i restored from back up and updated to beta 5 but now its taking forever to finish reloading everything. Its been 2 hours and i still only have 7 of 800 pictures back on my phone. Also google+ is crap on my iphone, it crashes 100% of the time. Anyone else had similar luck?

    Google+ issue is exactly that. a Google+ issue

    regarding your photo sync, i would stop it. sync to remove and then attempt to resync all of them again. probably wouldnt hurt to reboot the device before loading photos

    I loaded via iTunes. Wife loaded OTA. Wife still had bugs carry over from beta 4 that didn't for me. Restored wife's via iTunes and it fixed those bugs. I recommend restoring via iTunes and not OTA for beta 5 if you want the best experience.

    OTA update went fine but I have lost all my custom tones.
    Removing and then resyncing my custom tones fixed it. Phone does feel quicker under beta 5.

    So, I just finished "Updating" my iPhone 4 gsm. My photos are blacked out and my camera roll is gone. I wiped my iPhone, but I restored from a backup I created immediately prior to wiping...about to try restoring from that backup again...IF NOT...back to 4.3.5 I go
    Has anybody else experienced this...and fixed this?

    It's funny how people say I wonder why the betas act so differently for different people. This thread is a perfect example of why, there are like four or five different combinations of installs people have done of beta 5. This is what happens because everyone has different apps, different level of knowledge, etc, etc. Some have done OTA without wiping, some have wiped and done restore then OTA, some have wiped setup as new then OTA, some have upgrade through iTunes, some backup wipe then upgrade through iTunes and the list goes on and on.

    Alli you rock lol that picture = nerd status

    Anyone asking where can I get iOS 5 is either A- Not a dev or B- doesn't know it's not released yet either of which means you shouldn't have it.

    Update just finished, the first thing I noticed is the touch points are fixed In beta 4 everything I tried to select was offcenter. Now selecting has returned to normal.

    Tv shows have sync'd ok but on playback it keeps skipping back half a second every minute or so. Very annoying!

    Pleats don't be asking where to get iOS 5. If you don't know, you shouldn't be loading it.

    I believe for the email to show you need to go to settings and notifications and turn it on. Not sure about the camera issue.

    Is anyone seeing issues with SMS/iMessenger? I have had a couple of instances when I go into the SMS app all I see is a white screen. No list of messages, no list of people with whom I have exchanged messages. Nothing is displayed, no buttons, no text, nothing... If I hit home, then double click home to get the fast switch screen, I can close the SMS/iMessenger app. Then when I relaunch, it's back to normal.

    So far, I've seen that 2 or 3 times...

    Anyone else?

    I lost my spot for iOS 5 I had to get my iphone exchanged and now I am stuck on 4.3.5 until I can find a way to get my UDID registered again :/

    iOS 5 really is an improvement!
