    I just connected my iPhone and got some sort of carrier settings update. I took a screen shot at the last minute. It does ask you if you want to download the update but I didn't think of capping that part.

    Hmm. Doesn't happen to my wife's phone. The only difference is that I have newer SIM card (AT&T 3.1) and hers is the original (AT&T 2.9). Strange.

    Scratch that. It just had me update hers. I am adding the pics. It also update the carrier to AT&T 3.1, which is probably what it did to mine. I guess the SIM card had nothing to do with it.

    I still have 2.9 and Mac OS doesn't ask me to upgrade. Is it just a pc issue judging by the pics

    Maybe, but I imagine they just roll out in stages.

    iTunes under 10.5.6 notified me just now and the upgrade took my phone from AT&T 2.9 to AT&T 3.1.

    Well I live in the Bay Area in California and for the past couple of days, 3G connectivity has been horrible. It intermittently drops in and out and I cannot access the internet at all sometimes. I was about to create a thread to see if anyone has been experiencing this same issue with at&t and their iphone, but this update gives me hope. Maybe its to fix this issue. I certainly hope so. Anyone else been experiencing complete 3G drop outs lately?

    My carrier version is O2 2.9 I docked my iPhone about 3hrs ago (Mac) and I didn't get the update?

    Will check later (although whatever it is could be US first?)

    The carrier update is a small 32KB file that gets downloaded. On my Vista machine it saved it to "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Carrier Support". Filename is ATT_US.ipcc.

    The file isn't in plain text, but I'm sure someone here will be able to make sense of it.

    I'm on a mac, live in KC and I got the carrier settings update. I happened to click the upgrade button (came here after to what the update was for) and bam there it was. iTunes didn't tell me the update was out there. :apple:

    Actually after a little more investigation, the IPCC file is actually a zip file. I unzipped it with WinRAR and got a bunch of directories for each different language. Each directory contains a carrier.strings and locversion.plist file. There's also a carrier.plist in the main directory.

    carrier.plist file contents:

    I'm with Movistar, a company from Spain. I've had the carrier settings update, about two times. It's nothing major. And it didn't affect anything ad far as I know

    Any idea if this will negatively effect us jailbroken iPhone users?

    Thanks. It is available in Des Moines, as you have stated, not until you choose check for updates. Worked fine as far as I can tell.

    I just updated mine as well.

    As soon as I plugged in my phone, the update popped up.

    No we need to figure out what it does. Hopefully better service for me. :)

    Mmmmmm. I'm not jailbroken, but I'll wait it out for a bit. It's probably an update to restrict use somehow.
