    I'm having mixed feelings. I feel like the whole mess of updating wasn't worth it. Anyone else feel the same?

    I feel like there should be more. It might just be me. Maybe it didn't install correctly or something? It'll grow on me eventually, I'm sure.

    I feel like I could do without a couple of features, but overall, I'm glad I updated my software.

    it does grow on you. give it a little while to notice the little things. remember, there are over 200+ new features. some of them are behind the scenes but the fluidity alone is way better than any of the 4.x.x, IMO

    AND of course an Untethered jailbreak will spice things up!

    I'm definitely glad I updated, I just feel that with all the hype surrounding iOS 5 we'd have more features. Guess they saved the good ones for the 4S

    I'm afraid to jailbreak again. I was jailbroken for a while and when I tried to in-jailbreak I bricked my phone lol.
    I do have a question though, is safari supposed to be updated or is the tabbed browsing only for the 4S?

    ETA: Someone beat me to it.

    Ooooh I see. I missed that one. I noticed the contact pictures but not the browser. I wonder why they only did it for the iPad....

    The update was a disaster for me, as several iTunes errors led to the phone trying to boot with iOS 5 and then crashing. The phone got locked into recovery mode. That took forever to fix!

    All seems to be well, now, though. The only thing I'm confused about is how to use SMS instead of iMessage to converse with another iOS 5 user. Sometimes, I'd rather my data not be used for messages. I don't have an unlimited plan.

    I don't have an unlimited plan either. That's the thing that sucks about iMessages.

    Yeah I had to wait about 9 hours before I got everything to update. I love my phone and apple is awesome but this was a little ridiculous.

    Knowing it was such an anticipated update I made sure to just grab the GM last week. I'm very happy with it. I love being able to use my own SMS and mail tones. And the notification center is a dream come true for me. Finally can watch a YouTube video without an intrusive interruption.

    Same as making a custom ringtone. Just make it into a .m4r and sync with iTunes.

    I make tones with ringtonium in the app store. Emails it as an m4r. Once you get it on your comp, save it, double-click that sucker and it opens in iTunes and is automatically saved under your ringtones and ready to sync. Tan facil!

    The reason why I like that app is because it does all that encoding stuff without me having to do it manually. It's just ready in a click.
