    Then why can't I install a OTA update that is 19 MB over cellular data?
    Because Apple and the carriers would rather just keep it WiFi only to avoid what I just explained.

    If this is an OTA for software update, there are multiple communications happening back and forth with servers so you might be using far more than the displayed size. So just to be on the safer side OTA is restricted to wifi only.

    The other limit is for the app store. You can download the 19MB using cellular there.

    Ok, I just don't get why I need wifi to download the OTA update, but I can be connected to cellular data while the update is preparing and while installing.

    Was the "recently used" emoticons present in the previous betas? If so, I hadn't noticed.

    Because installing isn't going to hinder on your cellular data as much as it would downloading it. Think of it like this. The typical teenage girl that follows Selena Fernandez on Twitter has downloaded her last two OTA updates with cellular data. They were 25 and 72 megabytes. Then one day an OTA update shows up and it's 150 megabytes. The phone is set up to not allow downloads of over 100 MB's. So she throws a hissyfit about needing to be connected to WiFi and starts complaining on the internet about it. Apple and the carriers would rather just restrict OTA to Wifi only for a reason like this.

    Then there's the legions of problems between chairs and devices that would raise a ruckus when an OTA software update caused a data cap to be blown, and overage charges to be incurred...

    That is true... I guess I could tether to another device to download OTA updates while on the go...

    "I have several contacts with pictures. If I click on "contacts", and then click on a contact that has a photo, it will show the correct photo. But, if I hit the "back" button, and choose another contact with a photo, it shows the previous person's photo. If I then hit "back", and then select the same contact again, it shows the correct photo. Is this just a glitch in my phone, or has anyone else noticed it?"

    That was on 4. It is fixed on 5.

    I don't have it enabled, and probably won't enable it until after iOS 8 becomes official so I can't test it out for you.

    It seems a restart fixed it.
