    Or have you taken the route of going through the developer process to get it now?

    Definitely looking forward to :)

    Not bothering with any of this buggy beta buisness, no matter how tempting it is, I'd rather wait for the official release :p

    My iPhone 4 works too good to instal a Beta. Perhaps if I had two iPhones but I am not risking what I need to use every day.

    iOS5 will be here soon enough.:rolleyes:

    I won't be waiting. I had the beta for a few days, then switched back, and now I'm on the beta again. The benefits have far outweighed any of the bugs that I have personally run into so far. *knocking on wood*

    I just find it also really sad that some apps are now getting 1* reviews with comments like 'FIX for iOS5!!!!'

    Since its beta software the devs haven't even had chance but are now already suffering thanks to the many idiots who've installed it and don't know the meaning.

    The first beta was a bit rough for day to day use (for my needs), so I'll try again next beta. Going back to 4.3.3 and jail breaking was easy enough.

    My spare is on beta since it is always on beta until release. There is no reason to install a beta on a primary unless you just don't care much. Not a huge amount of changes for developers in the beta. It just seems like a few more APIs.

    Nah, the wait is fine. A lot of the new features have issues that will get resolved after some updates. If you want something functional, it's worth waiting for the actual release or wait for the GM which would be the same as actual release. The GM normally comes out just a tad before the actual release. At least at that time it's mostly finalized.

    I'm also waiting. I only have a iP4. If I had another iOS device to test it on I would.

    As tempted as I am to get my hands on iOS 5 I am going to wait. This is my main phone and it simply isn't worth ruining things just to install some buggy software. I'm going to wait it out.

    I'm not a developer, so I haven't install iOS 5 BETA.

    Those people who are not developers, and did install iOS 5 BETA and then make any complaints about it, I consider wasteful and do my best to ignore their very presence. But I'm just weird that way. ;)

    I will be waiting. Apple even states that you should not install the beta on a personal device.
