iPhone Update for March 2012 (iOS 5.1)

Has anyone updated their iPhone 4 to iOS 5.1 yet. I believe it was released this Wednesday when they announced the new iPad.

I'm updating mine today and will post back with what I find. Hopefully it will be uneventful!

Nothing to note on that update. It just added new lock screen, "4G" indicator, and little tweaks

I did the update and now there is a mysterious dot on the right side of my iPhone's display screen.

Just kidding.

The update has not caused any problems and there is no dot.

I updated as well, and I noticed the tires don't bubble anymore and my car accelerates instantly when I hit the pedal. Who knew Apple was so powerful?

For the first time, an iPhone update did fail me with this one.

Went through all the downloading, updating, etc. and then said the phone was in Recovery mode and needed to be Restored. At that point it was essentially like a brand new (empty) phone waiting to be set-up. Thankfully, I had just backed up before selecting the update so it only cost me a reinstall and complete back up (~30 min).

I literally have no iOS device around (sold my iPad 2, pre ordered 3), but I remember reading online that the 5.1 JB is around the corner. It's been released as a tethered JB so far though

FYI, Actually you are getting HSPA+ service in your area if it shows 4G, not actual 4G LTE. The 4S does not have the needed 4G LTE chipset (which the new iPad wil) and can use the older HSPA+ service if it is available in your area. There is some controversy over this being added as it creates confusion over 4G service

thanks, way over my head. It seems faster though on "4G" vs. the old "3G"

Its all marketing doubletalk anyway. This 4G marketing thing is a mess, but you should see better speeds with this latest upgrade. Some explanations if you care:

Updated as soon as it came out and no problems here either. Does anyone have an occasional problem with answering the phone? Sometimes it works perfectly, but on occasion it won't answer the first call. I also get an empty phonebook occasionally. Are there any solutions for this? I have the current update on the car's software.

Mine is acting flaky now- the iPhone plays out of its speaker rather than the car when I plug it in via the white apple cable.
