    just curious to see if people are going to go back to stock IOS6, or wait for a J/B or stay on 5.1 all together.

    i'm on 5.0.1 and will probably stay on it till IOS6 (jailbreak is release)

    Staying with 5.1.1. Too many bugs with iOS 6 and I like my jailbreak.

    Staying on 5.1.1 for the jailbreak. I can't see a reason not to use BiteSMS.

    6—hope for a Jailbreak to get BiteSMS back. Not a big deal for me.

    Just did a restore on my 4s yesterday and was going to run 5.1.1 until I get iphone 6. Figured it might be easier to sell the 4s if it's still jailbreakable. Being stock is sure tough I miss the hell outa bitesms and zephyr!

    Ha!

    nobody is using 5.0.1 anymore like me, apparently you guys are much motivated to start over on all your hacks/tweaks then I was.

    Depends, if I don't need to be jb on iOS5 to be able to jb iOS6 on the 4S then I will do it a week or so after.
    ATM I'm jb on the 4S w/ 5.1.1 and officially unlocked, but I think soon it's gonna be time for the phone to have a restore as NEW and start fresh on iOS 6. I"m ready to try Spanish speaking Siri and see if it actually can work w/ places to eat now in PR at least. Nevertheless what I decide I will download iOS6 on my Mac and wait patiently.

    It's full of bugs on my iPod touch 4G. This is unacceptable, because it's still a supported device.

    1 - iMessage/Facetime is spotty and fails to activate sometimes. Won't even work if I restore from backup.

    2 - Push notifications simply do not work (yes they are on), except for iMessage (when it works).

    3 - Auto brightness is crazy.

    4 - Battery lasts less.

    This on stock iOS 6. I cannot understand how this is possible. This is the worst release of iOS - ever.

    I'm not going to move from iOS 5 until they fix these obvious bugs. I know many are A-ok on iOS 6, but I'm not. And I've done a clean restore, still not working well.

    And I am not having any of these issues. :)
    And none of my collegues are reporting them either.
    And you should never restore to backup when jumping to a new firmware family.

    I'll try it iOS6 for awhile. It'll take awhile to get used to being without Zephyr, BiteSMS, and IntelliscreenX (and it's settings toggles). My phone was always too buggy for my liking even though I have minimal tweaks going on, so I'm gonna go back to stock and see how it smoothens out.

    Off-topic, but if I switch iOS 6 from the 5.1.1 jailbreak, do I go straight to updating OTA/through iTunes or should I restore my iPhone before updating??
