    So I updated my carrier file to enable the tethering, and my phone is all screwed up. It's not ringing when I get phone calls, or my visual voicemail isn't working. I'd just like to revert back to what I had. I keep seeing posts telling me to go to Users->User->Library->iTunes->iPhone Carrier Support

    but I don't have an iPhone Carrier Support folder anywhere within the iTunes folder. Where can I get the file?

    I believe you have to restore your phone and set it up as a "new" phone, not using your previous back-up. I'm not positive, though.

    and a clean restore is just clicking the "Restore" button in iTunes?

    I suppose youre on windows?

    It is located at C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Carrier Support\

    Nope, on a Mac. That iPhone Carrier Support folder is nowhere to be found

    does this affect apps I've purchased? Will those still run on the phone?

    No no effect. And you can just restore network settings

    the only thing you lose is your SMS/Notes database & customization settings. Contacts/media/apps/bookmarks can all be synced back

    I had this exact same problem.

    Option-click restore->name->Library->iTunes-> iPhone Carrier Support-> to the IPCC file that is in there.

    EDIT: Saw that there isn't one. Hmmm.... don't know.

    IDK. I know that forum rules frown upon users telling/giving people software, but would the mods frown upon giving a user an openly available update like the carrier file?

    if you can't share it here, is there a place where I can download it? I looked on Apples site but didn't find anything

    What I did was (I had backed up just after the 3.0 update) and I clicked restore. click yes I want to restore to factory settings, when that was done and it prompted me to either setup new phone or restore from previous backup, I did restore from previous back up and all my settings were put back the way they were. Pretty easy, time consuming but easy.
