    Got a 3GS and installed iOS 5. Result: all my apps are muddled up all over the place - out of folders, on different screens - its a right mess. I suspect some things are missing too. My ringtones have definitely gone and no longer show up as 'installed' on iTunes so I can't re-install without repaying. Anyone got any idea how I can get them back?

    Restore from backup in iTunes.

    I need to do this as well since IOS 5 found an ancient inactive me.com account and loaded it. So my question is - if I go to the back up from before I upgraded to IOS 5 - then I need to reinstall ios 5. Right?

    No, you don't. The backup keeps everything data-wise on your phone backed up exactly how it was, so for example:
    - Your settings (except for anything new introduced into iOS 5)
    - Your folders
    - How your apps are organized
    - Your contacts
    - Your text messages
    - Your call history
    - Your notes
    - Etc.

    ...however it will not restore your old iOS. It will still be iOS 5 after restoration.
