Take note Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola. This is how software updates are supposed to be deployed.

My iPhone is definitely faster and the battery life is much better.

Lol. Sorry, I just had to.

Can't wait until they allow us to download these updates over 3G... It's not really OTA until they do.

Glad the 'Unable to purchase' warning has gone from the appstore! :D

Is it possibly due to the hardware? I have a UK unlocked iPhone and I got the 3G toggle back in 5.1.


It's an AT&T thing. They took it away because they are poopoo heads.

Hello??????? SBSettings???? Gives you option for E and 3G with a single swipe on the top...best cydia tweak ever invented. Currently I am running a 4S on AT&T and am on E only. Battery life is soooo much better....Thanks Saurik


Not every one jailbreaks, or wants to. I'm quite happy with stock firmware. Not going to jeopardize security or stability for a few tweaks - and yes I like SBSettings and have used it on jailbroken devices in the past.

This is good and all but never understood the purpose of a dl only option?


Most likely for those ultra busy on-the-go types. Download now, run away to business then come back and it's ready to install while they watch the C-SPAN episodes they DVR'd.

I'm just happy for updates at all! Before the iPhone made smartphones main stream, i've owned about a dozen phones with the ability to update, but the manufactures never pushed a single update.
The only phone I had that updated regularly was my beloved Sidekick. (How I miss thee, dearest Sidekick) *tear*
