    Well, with so many people updated to iOS 5 I was wondering if its stable enough/safe to update to it if your UDID is registered? Thanks for the help!

    It is a developer beta. It is not ready for the general public. If you test apps, develop apps and submit data to apple; that is what it is intended for.

    As far as using it for everyday purposes, you might want to wait.

    There are kinks....it is a beta

    With the kinks though do you think it is safe? All i do is text, email, surf the internet, facebook, youtube, and call people, oh and camera

    Unless you're planning to submit bug reports and help Apple add polish to this otherwise very buggy beta, I'd hold off. Wait until the 3rd beta or so.

    The guy that registered my UDID is indeed expecting me to report bugs to him, so I guess ill try it. Can I restore to iOS 4.3.3 because I remember on the GM for iOS 4.2 i could restore to iOS 4.1.2 or what ever.

    According to this forum people are have luck with downgrading. It's gonna be very ymmv tho. I'd think of it as being stuck there if you are considering. Just in case.
