    I installed the iOS 5 GM on my iPhone 4, and whenever I attempt to restore from my backup before it was installed I get the message saying iTunes can not restore my iPhone because an error occurred.

    Worst comes to worst, I have my apps back (all back to their original settings) and I can just start over..but I'd rather not. Any suggestions?

    Did you upgrade your itunes to support iOS 5?

    My iPhone 4 upgraded to iOS 5 and restored backups with no problems.

    I downloaded Beta 7 and used that, but I'm considering trying that again.

    Raima is correct -- try getting the latest Beta 9 and see if that gets it.

    If not, what exactly is the error you're getting?

    I upgraded to beta 9, and I'm still having the issue. The error notification says "iTunes could not restore the iPhone because an error occurred." What should I do from here?
