    This is the official version, fellas. I don't know how to explain that the GM is the final release any clearer than I already have. But, to each his own. I'm just saying there's no reason to put your life on hold for something you can already get.

    Anyways, here's an in-depth how-to on updating:

    ^^^ I have the GM and a some of the stuffs r still not working,.,,,location based reminder is not in it..only day based reminder...no gestures working
    Location Based Reminders can't be set for an Exchange Account.

    Make sure you are using LBR folders "on my iPhone" or "iCloud". If you're syncing to a Tasks folder from Exchange/Activesync (i.e. Google Push!) it won't give you the location field.

    Can you Elaborate a bit more..? What are LBR folders? I have 3 mail accounts set up..iCloud me.com, a gmail account which I just changed to normal gmail rather than exchange push one and a university email set up as exchange. Every syncing option is turned on for all 3. But not getting anything in the reminders yet

    Seriously, what a great teacher. I hope it's an iOS development course - that may be understandable to a certain extent, though I see it no reason to skip class.

    You guys all know that it will still be there when you leave class? It may even be easier to access because millions of people will not be flooding the servers. And it kills time.

    LBR = Location Based Reminder.

    Tap the icon at the top left of the screen with three horizontal bars. That will show you your lists. You can make more lists like "Home" or "Work" there. If the list is associated with your University email account, or your Gmail account, the iPhone won't let you set a Location Based Reminder on that list.

    If the list is associated with your iCloud account (not MobileMe account), or it's "On My iPhone" then you can set a Location for the reminder.

    On the main reminders screen, swipe left or right to go between your Lists.

    We know the GM version is the official one, it just wouldn't work with the new version of itunes unless you hook it up and run it through...at least that's what happened when I went to gm4.0, I had to download itunes when the sw came out and re-install it with the "official" public version for me to be able to restore back to what I had and what not.

    My guess is.... A year from today when Apple does actually put out an iPhone5!

    NOTE.... This statement is regarding ONLY iPhone users on Verizon Wireless!

    I am a former BB user who is on VZW. I love the service, but they are terrible with controlling the OS releases. I am still doubtnig that VZW will release ios5 today. Not sure how, but I think they will block it.. that is until I see different with my own eyes

    Currently running iOS 4.3.3 on my iPad 2. Do I have to upgrade to 4.3.5 before downloading and upgrading to iOS 5? It will take about an hour to download 4.3.5 and I don't want to tie up my ipad for that long if I'm just going to immediately upgrade to 5.0. Thanks.

    No you don't, but when you go to upgrade I recommend you download iOS 5 then restore it to iOS 5. It will have the cleanest install and make sure your good to go.

    I am pretty sure you can just upgrade 4.3.3 to 5.0 right off the bat

    You can, but doing a restore will make sure your not missing anything and allow the best install of iOS 5. I recommend everyone upgrading today do this anyway

    I was actually running 4.3.3 on my iPad also. I wanted to be ready so I updated to 4.3.5 this morning before leaving for work. The whole process took only about 20 minutes. I don't think any update has ever taken an hour.

    It depends on your computer for the download mostly, if your computers slower I t could even take hourS
