I'd like to check out iOS 7, but I am not a developer. How do I get iOS 7 without a developer account? Anything else I need to know about installing it?

Pay for a developer account? Then you can be really nice to all your friends and register their udids on your account so they can have ios 7 too. Everybody wins. :)

If you don't want to spend $99, there are several sites on the web that will register your UDID for you for a small fee. Google it.

Yeah there's that option I suppose. Only drawback is you lose put on the enormous sense of satisfaction you get from being really nice to your friends, that's my point

Not to be a buzzkill but you also have to remember its still in beta and thereforee contains bugs. I wouldn't put it on your main phone. Developers are more prepared to deal with bugs and know how to resolve issues that arise. I am personally a chicken s%#t that would rather wait the 2 more months for a stable supported version.

There are a few members on the board willing to register UDIDs, check the other threads. Maybe you can find a link to iOS7 Beta 1 which doesn't require a registered UDID, and then OTA update to 3(might work)? As for not installing it on you daily driver, I will say there are some less than desirable bugs, I CAN NOT say they've effected my daily driver in any serious manner. Since you don't seem to know how to get it, I wouldn't advise getting it, there's a reason it's not available to everyone at the moment.

eBaY have loads of listings to register your UDID for like £0.99p I don't understand what is so complicated. If you're worried just drop a dollar on a UDID registration on ebay. Not that difficult.

And if it's too buggy for your liking, go into DFU and downgrade. It's not rocket science.
