    I have this error also. I assume it's a server issue on their end and nothing to worry about yet.

    That is incorrect. If it was working properly, you would get a message along the lines of "Software is up to date," which I did when I had iOS 5 Beta 7. Now, running iOS 5 GM, I get the "Unable to Check for Update" error which I could only assume it means that it can't even check to see if my software is up to date or not. Almost like it is have issues connecting to the servers.
    Well, crap. Time to recall the greatest version of iOS ever delivered!

    Get over it. It's a nit and I'm sure that it will be addressed with the first maintenance release.

    As the others have said, you've just updated to the latest version - there are no updates available. "Duh" is the correct response.

    If you say so...

    How 'bout the servers have nothing to show you yet so the error generates?

    Good gravy man - you're making much ado over nothing. By this time next week, the real deal will be out, and if the issue is still there a week from now, come back and whine about it. SMH...

    Is this true? I wanna get it when I get home if so.
    Yep, I just installed it and don't have a developer UDID. I followed these steps:

    1. Download the correct file. If you have a sim pick the GSM one, if no sim pick CDMA.
    2. Update to at least Itunes 10.5 beta 7. Restart your computer after it is done updating.
    3. Perform a backup (sync) of your phone (takes about 2-3 minutes in iTunes depending on the data on your phone)
    4. Extract the DMG file and put the extracted file somewhere you can easily find it.
    5. Hold shift/alt+click Restore and it will ask you to find the file you extracted. This completely wipes the phone.
    7. Then after it applies your backup and starts loading in your apps, photos, music, books and other data just like you had it before. You won't lose any data at all it just takes a bit longer than doing an update does.

    yeah, I'm not making much ado over it, just pointing out an error. Was only curious if others was getting it too. Any error message isn't normal. No need to get bent out of shape over this thread. SMH...

    Just make sure this done on a Mac. If it's windows, it will never read a DMG file.

    Please, do describe how I was bent out of shape in the first place. Kind of curious about that. I simply stated I got an error and ask if others got it too.

    Anyways, was reading other cases on this and it was noted that apparently apple has disabled the ability to use that feature until the 12, which would explain the error.

    That was the kind of response I was looking for, rudeness was unnecessary.

    You can use HFSExplorer to unpack the dmg file on windows and extract the iPhone ipsw file I did!

    There are several apps for opening .DMG files on Windows. The 7-zip utility will read them and allow you to extract the contents.

    How about we all dial the attitude back a notch or two?

    I have the GM version installed on both my Verizon iPhone 4 and my iPad2 wifi. I am missing the location feature for reminders and also the camera icon on the lock screen. Am I missing where to set these up?

    Yep, no reader button in Safari either. Did we get a bogus early beta?

    You need to double-tap the home button to get the camera button on the lock screen.

    iPad 2 wifi is week. I get a strong signal on my iphone 4 while my iPad 2 is up and down.

    has anyone seen this yet? could this just be a bad install and I should try again?

    Hmmm, I have both features on mine. Did you do a restore "as new"?
