    Hey, has anyone had any issues where the iOS5 will work fine for about 2 weeks and then it goes back to the activation screen and cant be bypassed. The phone was never updated, it has had beta 4 on it all the time, the UDID has been registered the whole time, hasnt been removed. Its a verizion phone. My two other iPhones with ios5 are working fine. I cant figure this out, restoring doesnt fix it and when I call apple dev support they are no help.

    Ios5 beta 4 was set to expire on 31st August @ 0800 est. you will need to update to one of the next betas to continue using the phone.

    also another question, can I upgrade from beta 4 straight to beta 7 or do i need to do 5 6 then 7?

    Nope, you should be able to go from 4 to 7 in one update if you are using the restore function in iTunes. Read the warnings if it's an iPhone 3GS, you need to use DFU mode for beta 7.

    Many people thought that they had an issue with the UDID but then they understand that the beta just expired.Next time check the dates of expiration

    Or you can always jailbreak and remove the UDID AND beta timer ^.^

    You don't have to if you jailbreak with Sn0wbreeze. Jailbreak with snow breeze and you get rid of the UDID registration and expiration timers.
