    No you don't. There are some issues pending that do affect the experience. My biggest peeve right now is where I will be doing things and then task switch over to text messages and there is a delay of about 7 seconds before it becomes responsive. It started in beta 6. There is still a camera/photo library cache bug. Battery life has declined since beta 5.
    Yes I do.

    My experience is fine.. Everything works perfectly.

    Also, the last Beta is 8.. So we'll see what it fixes etc.

    I agree with ghostface. Battery has taken a hit since beta 5. Not nearly as good. Also, there are some bugs left to be fixed. I wouldn't be happy if this was a GM release. Actually I would be angry. I hope Apple gets it pretty close to rock solid for beta 8.

    I assume if we don't hear anything re: beta 8 any time this week or the next that we will be approaching GM soon. Again, it's really Apple's call (but it's fun to speculate lol)...

    So I guess rumors were incorrect. I was really hoping for beta 8 yesterday.

    Unfortunately things do change at times and don't go according to plan (if it was really scheduled to drop yesterday). We are still a few weeks away from October so it doesn't necessarily shock me. Apple has a bit of time left.

    It was scheduled to drop yesterday but that changed before yesterday even arrived. I had a bad feeling it wasn't going to drop. Yes things change all the time.

    Apple's master plan - now that is going to be interesting. Timing is everything to Apple. Wonder whose shoe is going to drop next!

    Apple didn't say it was coming out yesterday. It was someone's guess and I am sure some body will guess right one of these days. I would be happy to see it this weekend but I am not holding my breath.

    Whose to say there will even be a beta 8, perhaps Apple is content sending a GM on next week for installation and devs can get their copies, IF any bugs are still found Apple can push anything on launch day. Apple wants to move as many units as possible for the holiday quarter so the sooner it ships in October the more units ship in October. Updates can go anytime especially given the move to OTA updates.

    Maybe I am clueless but then again, maybe I have a point. I have a factory unlocked iP4 and am using it on T-Mobile. Since iOS5 is not ATT specific, why is it that I still cannot get MMS messages? I have read all day that its not supported since my carrier does not support the iPhone yet but this seems to be a software issue. iOS has nothing to do with T-Mobile so is this is an issue that will be rectified soon? I am on beta 7 at the moment and really getting frustrated! LOL I really would hate to have to go back to iOS4 but unless someone knows something here that I don't, it seems like its my only avenue. Any feedback is appreciated!

    Ok now latest rumor says this Friday. It just keeps changing. iOS 5 beta 8 coming this Friday, GM on the 23rd, iPhone 5 launch early October as rumored?

    *edit* that link was posted on the 13th. Never mind that.

    According to a post on the developers website, also on 9to5mac, Apple will reset the iCloud backup data this thursday, the 22nd. I think this goes along with the rumor about GM coming friday the 23rd. However, Apple did say they were going to wipe the iCloud servers before releasing the GM, so could they possibly release the GM during the downtime thursday (9AM-5PM PST) and not let you back up to iCloud until after you update to the GM, since i'm sure beta backups is something they want to get rid of before the release.
