    Is anyone else having problems with this? My friend always registers my UDID for me and I have confirmation that it is on there.... Just wondering if anyone else has this problem

    Yep. Same here. I upgraded just fine to iOS 7 on Monday. Wanted to do a restore today and it refuses to activate. :/

    Someone posted that if you do an update instead of restore, it would not require UDID to be registered. Not knowing this, I registered mine and did a restore.

    The battery life is awful, and I saw some people posting their battery usage printscreen with rather excellent battery life, making me suspect that I should have done an Update instead of Restore.

    So, I'm now redoing the whole process using the Update method, just to see if the battery drain issue could be addressed.

    The first time I did it using restore I also set it up as new phone, then restore the setting/content from backup. I get just about 2 hours of usage before the battery goes flat. Not sure if a 64GB model consumes more quickly than the other models.

    I need help please ! I tried installing IOS 7 but was in DFU mode so I couldn't "update" and did "restore". Now, iTunes asks me for a devlopper account. What do I have to do ? Am I stuck and have to pay for a devlopper account ?

    I've just finished redoing the upgrade, with an Update method this time. I'm now using it only to play music with the screen off. Will provide update later on battery usage. Under iOS6, we're supposed to be able to get close to 40 hours of playback. Will see what it's like with this beta.

    I know battery consumption is less of a priority for betas as they need to incorporate monitoring software in it to find bugs, but I'm still curious to see wide variance of consumption rate among us.

    Put your phone into DFU mode, restore back to 6.1.4, activate it. Then, redo the upgrade using the Update method instead of Restore.

    After re-doing the upgrading using the Update method, this is my battery usage showing:

    After 30 minutes of music playback with the device switched off, I'm down to 88 percent. Extrapolating that means I would get just 4 hours of music playback which is 1/10 of iOS6's performance.

    This is on an 64GB iPhone 5.
