    I have a 3GS (on iOS5 beta obviously) and can not make the reminders fire when I leave or arrive at a location. I saw other threads where people were complaining that setting one makes location services run constantly and kills battery life. Well, when I set one I never see the location services arrow in the status bar.

    Just wondering if they actually work in Beta1.

    Two things:

    1) They don't work against Exchange accounts.
    2) You need to make sure you hit "done" twice, as either cancel button will wipe out the changes.

    Not sure I understand that, how are they tied to an email account?

    EDIT: I tried setting one up in the iCloud reminder list and it still didn't fire the notification.

    I wonder if they work on an iPhone 3GS. I don't see what they would not but I have not seen anyone say they work on their 3GS so I guess it is possible. Good info to know they actually work in the beta.

    I'm stumped. :(
