    iOS devices cannot typically be bricked. Not sure how this relates to iOS 7.

    It can't be bricked people use the term Bricked to scare people.

    It's rare for an iOS device to be bricked.

    So...basically the question is "what happens if my iPhone breaks?"

    That's something that is different for everyone. What would you do if anything you own breaks? Generally something for you to decide what to do with it, right?

    (Generally not something that happens with iOS updates, even if something goes wrong, since you can almost always recover in one way or another.)

    It doesn't brick your device or do anything bad. If you do it wrong, you just have to revert to iOS 6. We can't really discuss the steps of how to do it here, but just go on YouTube or Google and look it up.

    ----------

    It means that your device doesn't respond to anything and no longer works no matter what you try to do. Loading the iOS 7 beta will not brick your phone.

    They never said that. If you load it without having a registered UDID, you get a screen telling you to register. That's all. All you have to do is restore back to iOS 6. Apple cannot deliberately brick your phone just because you try to load developer software.

    No, it won't be bricked whether you're a registered developer or not. It's just that you need a registered UDID to actually use iOS 7. The post you're describing was a bug which I haven't seen anyone mention since beta 2 or 3.

    I'm not saying he lied, I'm saying it was likely a bug that Apple fixed.

    No it might of happen in beta 1 or something beta 5 is stable now so nothing will happen

    Or something happened with his phone not necessarily related to iOS 7...like random things that happen to different people's iPhones (and other phones or electronics) in general from time to time.

    It's you choice but if something does go wrong like a bug then don't complain here. But I say go for it seems stable enough

    I will kindly suggest just not to go to the beta. :) especially if you are this concerned. Just stay on iOS 6 a bit longer.

    Then don't do it. Just wait for the public release next month.

    EDIT: I'll probably will get my account suspended because I said "trolling" :(
