    Anyone else noticing that Data Roaming and Location Services randomly turn themselves off with Beta 2?

    I'm only noticing this when:

    a) I get a notification that I received a MMS and that I should turn Data Roaming on to receive it. Even after turning Data Roaming back on I need to restart the phone before it will start receiving MMS again.

    b) When I start Find My Friends, sometimes, it will tell me that Location Services is turned off.

    Seems once Data Roaming turns off, it is having an issue using the internet in general, as it stops receiving E-Mails as well, until I restart the phone.

    Siri also loses Location Services at times. It require cycling the preference for that app or service to get it back.

    Yup. I haven't had the MMS issue, but my location services gets disabled randomly and it drives me bonkers. I use navigation frequently throughout the day, so when it does it, it tends get a bit annoying. I haven't found a pattern.

    Just annoying.

    PS, yeup....I know it's a beta, yes I know I don't have to use it. Still gonna. Thanks anyway.

    i've noticed this a lot and it could be related to the popups i get from time to time telling me x app has used my location recently and asking if i want to keep allowing it.

    Maybe its getting hidden from time to time and so disabling the location for that app. It is rather annoying!
