    Just got back my iPhone 5 that was stolen back in October and it still has 7.0.2 on it but the jailbreak is gone now. I am curious if it's worth going to 7.1.1 is it? I am not a user who really needs to be jail-broken but I did it because I could and enjoyed it a bit. Any big changes or features I should know about? Thanks.

    iOS 7.1 is much faster and more stable than 7.0 so you should probably upgrade.

    I'm interested in how you got back a stolen phone gone since October. I think it's great but how did it happen? :)

    By most reports you have a big chance of battery life being much less if you update your phone since it is a 5, and the 5 seems most sensitive to this issue.

    Long story short, whoever stole it took it to an EcoATM machine in my local mall and sold it for cash. Immediately after it was stolen I put a message on the phone via iCloud saying something like "if found please call #". This company received it on or around January 22nd, I got a call around March 10th. When they did their processing they saw this message and figured it was stolen and called my house number asking if it was stolen etc which obviously it was. After doing what they asked me to do (police report etc) I had to wait for them to process it as I guess they take their time because they're losing money but I finally got an email on Tuesday the 13th saying they shipped it overnight and I got it yesterday moring. :)

    Had to go to the Apple store and get a new simcard-slot and sim-card as mine was missing, they gave it to me for free. I tried explaining my situation to them to see if they would honor my warranty even though it was expired because I haven;t had the phone since October but they didn't believe me I guess even with a police report. So I am still stuck with a battery that has a "fault" that they confirmed yesterday and it would be $80 to replace it. But I will live with it for now, it's not too bad check the screen below. Btw I upgraded to iOS 7.1.1, not a big speed improvement but the 5 is still fast as can be so I guess I just don't notice it.:p

    iOS 7.1.1 from 100% to 53% when I plugged it in.

    Why did you quote me and then post something unrelated? :confused:

    Faith in humanity restored. I'm happy for you, mate! :)

    On topic, I'd say you do a clean install of 7.1.1 and set up as new iPhone, then just turn on iCloud to get your contacts back.

    Yeah I have everything back like it was for the most part, apparently whoever stole it tried to wipe it but failed due to Find My IPhone lol.

    Humanity? It was a company that could get in very big trouble for dealing in stolen goods. Your faith in humanity can remain as bad as it was before.

    7.1 has faster animations, it speeds up any phone it is on.

    What do you perceive as a benefit to staying with 7.0.2 without the JB?

    Well considering its a black iPhone 5 there are some ""scuff gate"" marks but otherwise flawless. It was in an otter box defender when it was stolen. I am still very surprised at the condition. :)

    Relax. :) Poster has a dry sense of humor and I'm reasonably certain that tongue was firmly in cheek. ;)
