This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Develop Program <br/><br.>if you are a member of the Program, please register you device in the @@url@@.

If you attempted to download the beta 7.0 please confirm it is the correct beta for your iDevice and secondly remember to "update" and not restore with iTunes (on a MAC press and hold the 'option' key while clicking update).
