    Why would you be getting such a message. I'm not a developer and I'm running it fine with no issues.

    There are ways to avoid triggering that message, which we aren't supposed to discuss on this forum. You must have done the steps to avoid it, and OP must have somehow inadvertently triggered it.

    Unless this came up as part of some sort of reset or restore process it might have been ralated in some way to using an older beta that then expired.

    I was away on an expedition to Borneo and was not able to keep up with the 2 week beta updates so the one I had ended up being time barred thats all. Anyway the good news is I just ordered a Nexus 7. :D

    yes you are right, it simply expired since I was off the grid and not using the iphone on my expedition to discover new species in Borneo.
