    I just activated my iPhone 4S on Verizon. I have 4 bars of reception (turned off WiFi for now), and at the top of the phone, in between the "Verizon 3G" and the time, there are 2 arrows spinning in a circle. They've been spinning like that for 10 minutes now. What does that mean? Oh wait, now the 2 arrows finally disappeared. I never saw that on my iPhone 3G...

    You're no longer locked out of your phone when syncing in iOS 5. You can freely use your phone when syncing

    what the person above me said, no more lock out. It's game time.
