    Blondy250...really blondy...With a Blackberry, this is possible, thats why I was asking about this software, since this is the first major upgrade in quite a while. Sorry the rest of the world isn't as smart as you obviously are.

    Not to pile on, but really? On your BlackBerry you could increase the size of the camera sensor and increase device memory with a firmware upgrade? I'm calling BS on that one.

    The question about Siri was legit - I'll give you that one.

    Ummm...no! Those would be hardware upgrades and no OS update is going to pull that off...but nice try!

    You sir are correct. As an ex-BB user and have like 12 of them in my phone collection currently there is no way to do this. The minute exception is the memory change in doing an BBOS update, sometimes you gain or lose *application* memory.

    But I cannot imagine the situation where an OS upgrade nets you +32GB of anything.

    Blondy250 was right. Put it back in the box and head back to the store.

    Is there a jailbreak out yet for ISO5?? Can I expect to jailbreak the day I get my 4S?

    I'm sure there will be at least a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5. I know that there were tethered JB tools for the latest beta (B7).

    The real question is whether the tether-less JB will be ready by then. And then the cat-and-mouse game between Apple and the jailbreakers starts up again.

    the GM currently has a tethered JB available. untethered can be a different story. i read elsewhere that the Devs may wait until the 4S is released

    i am going wait for the untethered. i've been Pure for 3 months now, might as well wait a little longer...

    I hope the untethered does come after the 4S is released. I do know that for sure the tethered jailbreak is out. Redsn0w again.

    Didn't see this anywhere in the info, but can we use custom text/notification tones with iOS 5?

    yes. SMS, email (1 for all), calendar, reminders etc.

    apps are handled as per app. meaning if they offer options, great. if not then i'm afraid we're stuck with the crappy Tri-tone sound, which makes me want to throw my phone as hard as i can at a brick wall everytime i hear it. thus is one reason i will be jailbreaking

    I've tried to see if its live but my phone has been saying its up to date with ios5 the last 2 or 3 days I've checked. Is there anyway to tell without plugging a phone in that doesn't have ios5 if its live yet or not.

    I seem to remember iOS4 came out around 10amPST. That's typical Apple release time. I myself am waiting for OS X 10.7.2 so I can have full iCloud support. I've been running the iOS5 GM since Friday.

    If you're already on iOS 5, you're not going to be notified that there's anything new. You already have what they're waiting for.

    It's 11.45am here in the UK and no update yet. I'll keep checking but I guess if people are saying it'll be 10am PST it'll be about 6pm here before I get an update

    I believe both iOS 3 and 4 came around 1pm EST. I remember attempting to update my 3GS on my lunch break last year and the servers beings so overwhelmed. My lunch break was coming to an end and I had to spend the rest of the work day with a bricked phone.

    I'm running the GM version and out of curiosity I wanted to check the software update option on the phone. The message I got was "unable to check for update" anyone else get this?

    Yes, I got it too from my iPad. They must be updating the servers, or there is an overload of olds trying to do the same thing.

    I am still under the impression that over-the-air updates won't work with this final build, and if you're already running the GM there shouldn't be an update for you unless Apple issued one after the GM.
