    Yesterday, while running Beta 4, my phone froze on the lock screen. I did a full restore and when I was restoring from iCloud, the apps all show up, but after installing for a few seconds, one of them will fail and I get a notification that the app couldn't be installed so and my choices are "Done" or "Retry." Then none of the other apps will load...everything just stops. When I try to delete an app, the phone freezes (usually). I was eventually able to get it to work by deleting all the apps. When I did this, all the apps I just deleted showed up on my phone again and installed perfectly. After erasing my phone and installing Beta 5, the same things are happening. Any ideas?

    I've had this a couple of times, not as bad as yours just the odd app, I found rebooting my phone made the apps install.

    Did you install the beta 5 OTA or using iTunes. If you used iTunes, I know how to help:

    Install iTunes 10.5 beta 5 if you haven't already (the new beta).

    Then plug in your phone and sync it again.
