comment Downloading voicemail to my laptop
Your phone has to be jailbroken for iExplorer to access voicemail files. Apparently the paid version (Phone to Mac or Phone to PC) will copy voicemail off a 'regular' iPhone: macroplant.com/phonetomac

comment What tiny thing in iOS 5 makes you smile, or has caught you off guard?
On further use this may be a bug as it doesn't seem to always happen (reliably or consistently), or only a partially supported feature. Trying to get to the bottom of this: discussions.apple.com/thread/3836857

You may want to try a backup and then factory restore. Also, check if there are any apps that store (large amounts of) data locally that could be taking it up.

comment Most iPhone 4S photos import into iPhoto 11 as all black images

comment How does iMessage know that the recipient is an iOS 5 device?
How do you de-register a device though? In the case of activating a friends iPhone with your SIM or if your iPhone is stolen? Further reading: arstechnica.com/apple/news/2011/12/…

comment Send background email alert if Time Machine backup fails
Thanks - that's a great answer, however I'm hoping for something simpler, and ideally prepackaged. I guess where it could fall apart is on the emailing side, since it would require SMTP credentials to successfully send email

Wrong on #1 and #2, and as the original topic stated, this is for iOS5 and/OR 4S. This is a new iOS5 feature!
