I think group chat is possible, coz it can add multiple recipients, though i did not try chatting with more than one person till now. And its showing delivery messages are seen.

The UI looks slightly different & I like the 4 finger swipe

Would have to spend lot of time installing stuff all over again.
Just goto diff tabs like apps, pics, song etc and check the box on top and it will sync back at next sync. I think issue happened if you activate icloud before the first sync, just a guess.

Jaggu, I simply followed the instructions & followed every step.

How will I activate icloud before syncing?

The pics & songs are there, its just the apps.

Also which check box are you referring to? I dont see any in apps folder in itunes.

Another point did you upgrade using a mac? I am on win7 with itunes 64 bit version.

If you set up the phone before syncing, iOS 5 allows this like a regular mobile you can set up iCloud.

Referring to this.

Yes iPhone 4 and iPad 2 on MBP and iPad 1 with Win XP upgrade.

Can you see tabs at the bottom of the screen, that will give you various option to call.

Have a look at the link Unlock iPhone 4 With Gevey SIM On iOS 5, this will help you to do a tethered jailbreak of your iPhone4.

Thank you members. Finally I could configure the skype.It was there after down load and the icon was hidden on the right side of the other icon.When I slide d the other icons to left I found and dragged all below the others. I did Skype test it did well but video is not tested.I use it with wi fi connection only.It is true if we explore apple store we can find lots of Free soft wares. I am lucky with 32Gb.Here is the screen shot The iPhone Thread-img_0430.png

Here are a couple of links that might help you:

How To: iOS 5 Safari Reader And Reading List -- AppAdvice



However, to put in short, if you are reading an article, tap on the Reader icon to see a readable version of the article.

On the other hand, the Reading List is for emulating the "ReadItLater" or "Instapaper" apps. You can mark an article for reading later and the article will be synced across all your iOS devices.

Hey Thanx, But i am looking for clutter free reading of the web pages as shown in this link. Apple - iOS 5 - See new features included in iOS 5.
is it possible in iPhone4? I think it's possible. Need to check with Picture site. I tried with wordpress before.
Again Reader Icon not comes with all web sites and there's might be some limitation for the sites to be shown with Reader Icon in the URL Tab.
In Android Mobiles. If you pinch and zoom, the contents are resized and clutter free. seems, it won't possible in iOS5.

That is what I was talking about. The "Reader" feature.

The "Reader" feature will work on any iOS device running iOS5.

Reader icon only appears on web pages which have a lot of textual content, for example, blogs and news sites. It makes sense to have it only on these websites.

You can pinch and zoom even in Safari.

I know, Safari has Pinch and Zoom , But Android do some more as if you zoom the page is clutter free and we can still read all contents without horizontal scrolling.
Everything will be aligned vertically as what happen if we click Reader Icon in iOS.
Have you tried it in Andorid mobiles especially HTC Desire S.

I had to move my Skype wifi to trash. The reason to do so was in India it works with TATA connectivity only. I am having my BSNL. SO it is of no use for me.Skype and face book are working fine.Using maps and GPS on roaming is very expensive.Video skype works as good as Laptop desktop with speaker phone.

Unhappy re: The iPhone Thread

Hi all,

I updated to 'ios 5' a couple of days ago. However, after the update, my iPod has reset ie., it is asking me to connect to iTunes. The trouble is iTunes is not recognizing the device (the iTunes and USB cable screen continue to appear). I've tried everything in the book but in vain.

Has anyone faced similar issues after the update? Please let me know the solution if so.
