    iOS 5 beta users (bugs discussion)

    Hi all;
    Thought I would start this thread for those using the new IOS 5 betas and their experiences. So, to get the ball rolling:

    Bugs I've noticed: Does not get along with 2do; reminders seems a bit buggy, often freezes and or closese.; Does not seem to get along with Square, crashes. As I use this program to take credit card payments in my office (I'm a D.C.) this is troubling but something I'm sure will get worked out by the Square people.

    Also, I can't seem to get ical events to show up on Notifications. Any of you have luck with this?

    That's it for now. I look forward to all your experiences and input with the new Betas as they come out.

    Best;
    Stephan Howard-Cooper, DC

    The only notifications that I'm getting are notifications from Apple-installed applications. Blegh.

    I've noticed the mail app sometimes returns an error when attempting to delete messages. It's annoying when you're deleting a bunch of emails. Also, my phone gets warmer than with 4.3 when using 3G for a length of time.

    How stable is the beta? Is it stable enough to use on your only phone?

    It's stable enough for daily use I think. There are some little annoying quirks, but I'd say it's good enough to use. I blogged a review on it : http://ninetoez.net/?p=509

    1- Maps app is slow
    2- Duplicate emails
    3- Unwanted scroll to top when activating Notification Center

    For people reporting decreased battery life: Try turning off push for your mail accounts including iCloud, this helped my battery by about 3 hours

    iOS 5 Bugs

    Installed without a problem but had serious issues with answering calls.. THe phone rang and I would slide to answer but nothing happened for about 10 seconds.. The phone would just hang on the unlock screen with the slider locked in the unlock position.. Also, photos that were in my camera roll, would not display full screen.. When I tried, the photo would show for about 1/4 second and a photo I had already deleted would pop in its place.. Other than that, everything worked like it was supposed to.. Had to go back to 4.3.3 as the calling issue was a major problem..

    The phone was linked to my house phone via bluetooth and that might have been the issue with answering calls but I couldn't verify that.. The bluetooth link works perfectly with 4.3.3..

    Receiving a call with bluetooth

    Hey,

    My phone won't answer when connected to BT hands-free in either car. It won't answer by the steering wheel answer button, nor by the answer button on the iPhone..

    I've giving iOS 5 beta a whirl and here is what I'm seeing thus far. Like someone above, I have ran into the duplicate email issue. I've also seen where an email will just disappear. It wasn't deleted, but, just doesn't show until I close the app and come back in. Lol. The most annoying thing so far is that any alert is completely random. Many times I will receive texts and get no notification (audio or visual) at all. I only know by going into my phone. I haven't had any issues answering calls. Although, I've noticed on multiple occasions it doesn't ring as long so I do miss more calls.

    Oh yes....what really has bothered me is that for email syncing, you used to be able to select "sync all" for email messages and now the max is only a month. I hate that.

    Does anyone know how often (if at all) Apple will update the beta before pushing the final?

    There will be a few more betas out but these betas expire so your phone will be a paper weight unless you downgrade so no more betas for me untill release of the real 5.0
