    I think its stupid that you have to always clean install an OS after every update. It makes no sense why I can't just use the back up and restore to that. So stupid!!!

    1) You don't have to start clean after every OS update. Only on 2.0->3.0 and now on 4.0->5.0 you had to do a restore. Every single other OS update was just "update"able with no restore needed.

    2) Even if you do a full restore, you can always still use your old backup.

    I think you're missing something.

    What I'm getting at here is that there always seems to be some sort of issue with the way it installs or something, like with iOS 5 GM and its battery issue. Therefore you always have to do the clean install. Atleast I almost always have this issue.

    My battery issue seems to be quite rare. Battery works fine till my phone gets below 50% then BOOM! Major battery drain. Had it go from 50% to 35% yesterday afternoon while it was idle.
