    The first time I bricked my phone it was the end if the world but I got on forums (this one in fact) and people helped me out. No one talked down to me like I was an idiot and I LEARNED.
    I wish it was still like that, those people who patiently answered my idiotic beginner questions without calling me a noob, or belittling in any way...

    Here is my issue and I maybe considered one of those condescending people but I for one can't stand people who ask the same questions over and over without reading ANYTHING. Take the time to educate your self a little by reading before trying something blindly a simple a quick search on Google can answer 99% of the questions people have in this thread but they are too lazy and want someone else to solve their problems. Betas are for developers for a reason.

    I'm really hating the fact that the "zoomed-in" feature of your wallpapers is still there. Lock screen, Homescreen and contacts pic when your calling the person shows the wallpaper zoomed in and blurry as heck. I even turned the parallax option off and rebooted and its the same. I want my crisp wallpaper display and not have it blurry/zoomed in just like ios6

    I installed the iOS 7 beta 2 on my 4s and the messages do not display the avatars. Does anyone else has this issue?

    I don't have them either on my 5. They do show up in group messages but not single conversations.

    put b2 in my i5 the modmyi app seems to be working better. no more half screen. service in my house does seem to be worse. sometimes goes from 4g to edge. battery does seem a little better. as much as i love the new ios7 i am about to try out a aliyun phone. tried android and didnt care for it. hopefully aliyun will be somewhere between ios and android.

    LOL! So I was trying to restore to 6.1.3 but was getting the same error. Then attempted a DFU restore - same error.

    It dawned on me, I haven't done an update in a while w/ my MBAir. So, I checked my hosts file and there it was... That stupid TinyUmbrella blocking address!

    Removed it and I'm updating from 6.1.3 w/out a restore. Hopefully I won't have any issues w/ iOS 7 once its done! I'll find out when I get back home.

    I have had beta 1 installed on my iPhone 5 since release, I have experienced a few bugs here and there which is to be expected. Overall though I have enjoyed it and I feel it is very stable for beta 1. However, I installed beta 2 on my iPad mini this morning, and I have had nothing but trouble. The time is off, and if I try to fix it my iPad freezes. Also I can not restart my iPad, the Apple logo shows up and then my screen goes black and stays that way. Anyone else experiencing these issues?


    **EDIT**
    So I DFU restored back to 6.1.3 and then option-updated back to ios 7, which fixed my reboot issue. However, once it rebooted I tried to set my time manually and this brought back the reboot issue. Must be a bug in the settings app that has to do with setting the time.

    **EDIT 2**
    After playing around and many restores later I have concluded that it is def a bug in setting your time manually. If you want to be able to reboot your iPad do NOT manually change your time. It is quite annoying but guess I will deal with my iPad having the wrong time until this is fixed. Sigh.

What could apple be holding out on??? hmmm..
    Not true -- tap on the text conditions in the "today" view on NC and the weather app opens.

    Anyone else catch the new timestamp feature in Messages? When in a message thread, slide right to left and the actual timestamp appears.

    Beta 2 is MUCH snappier and smoother on my i5. Big update from Beta 1.

    iMessage is working fine for me between iPhone 5 (6.1.2) and iPad 3 (7b2).

    The photos app on my iPad won't even launch, and is behaving oddly on my iPhone. Things won't delete from Photo Stream on my iPhone but they don't show up in iPhoto on my computer like they have been deleted. Some times screen shots don't save immediately to the camera roll and show up later.

    Can't comment on that, yet. I've mostly used the iOS apps and a couple games my daughter tried out. No issues w/ the Photo.app either
