    So I am just curious to know, if I pay a developer to add my UDID number to his account and then I install the beta version and everything goes ok, for the first couple of weeks. When beta 2 or 3 or 4 comes out and say he removes me from his account I will no longer be able to upgrade as I will get an error from apple because my UDID isn't in his account anymore because he removed me, which I have heard does happen, will I have any problems going back to 3.1.3? Is it difficult to do once you upgrade? Or can I just keep the current beta that I'm on till the official release, as I've heard that the beta's do expire. Any ideas???

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Betas do expire.
    You could downgrade to official firmware if needed but it might be tricky.

    I would say don't do it.

    The betas are buggy and really have no benefits over the 3.1.3 firmware right now. Multitasking is the biggest upgrade and you won't see applications capable of taking advantage of it until 4.0 is released in summer.

    I disagree, the folders for me is the reason I installed the beta, its nice having 2 screens of apps instead of 6 (I have a lot of games, most of which i don't play that often, but i just don't want to be in the situation where I want to play a specific one and I can't because its too big to redownload over 3G or something)

    So are you saying that you are a NON Developer and you installed it on your phone? How did it go, did you have any problems?
