    I've held off installing it on my iPhone 4, because there doesn't seem to be any real benefit to this update, and I'm worried about unintended changes that would make things worse (like 3G owners are experiencing with iOS4).

    So if you did download 4.0.1, would you do it again, or does it matter?

    Meh...I thought it was a useless update. All it did was did stuff to the signal bars. But I'm not losing sleep just cause I updated to 4.0.1...

    Just my two cents.

    Bought the iPhone 4 yesterday from Three (UK). Awesome deal btw.
    Upgraded to 4.0.1 and the phone is working fab. No problems whatsover.

    Can't comment on the actual benefits over the 4.0.0 as I didn't use the Phone until after the upgrade.

    It always great to have latest firmware, rather than have getting annoying alert from itunes. Btw, I didn't notice improvement either.

    That doesn't sound related to the update. Mine updated fine, it just took a long time. I had to change my computer settings to keep it from going into sleep mode while it was going through the process.

    All that changed was the signal bars, so no I'm not sorry I downloaded 4.0.1.

    No because pre 4.0.1, Apple has been using wrong algorithm to calculate the signal bar.... a.k.a the bars have been lying the entire time before 4.0.1 :eek:

    No reason to not get it.

    All it changes is the bars. If someone has a problem it's because there's something wrong with their phone. In other words, it would have freaked out soon even if they hadn't updated.

    And frankly, I'm happy to have more honest bars now. If you like having Apple lie to you, stick with 4.0.

    Otherwise, upgrade.

    It also contained a fix for an exchange issue. It wasn't in the changelist but apple mentioned it during their event.
