    Has anyone downloaded and restarted yet? I wish there was a change log.

    Changelog
    Fixes to better handle carrier support.

    Is that better? Will you download it now? The updates are always fixes to support new features or update support for existing features. Why you wouldn't download them is beyond me.

    Because nowhere in the history of technology has an "update" broken anything? My phone has worked beautifully since Day 1. Why would I risk downloading an update that realistically has the potential to break something without knowing what to expect?

    So if you go to Settings>about your carrier settings will automatically be updated.

    It's a settings file. Not a software update. How does that "realistically have the potential to break something"? The worst that can happen is the APN gets busted, which A. is unlikely, the APN rarely changes. and B. can be fixed by using unlockit.co.nz or the iPhone Configuration Tool.

    I know what it is. I wanted to know what it is supposed to fix or improve, and asked to see if anyone has seen any tangible difference after updating.

    If you're okay with just downloading everything that is pushed at you, great. Some of us want a little more information. No need to be condescending.

    I hope you were being sarcastic, because no it hasn't.

    This +1. It doesn't even affect your jb or any other software/hardware hack, so I've never understood why people get trepidatious about it.

    I think this actually did fix something. I used to not be able to go from 3G->LTE without toggling Airplane mode. Now it'll automatically reconnect to LTE without me having to do that.

    I don't see any difference. I've never had an issue reconnecting to LTE after having been on 3G. Glad yours has improved though.

    It only happened a few times - I almost always have LTE service. However, sometimes I'd get back within LTE range and it would stay on 3G until I toggled airplane mode. Go figure.

    I noticed two things so far:
    1. Where I'm sitting, I usually get 1 bar. Now I have 3 bar. (I live in a basement)

    2. Amber/Government alerts now appears for me under notification section.

    When you say the signal is better are you going by bars ? Cause that isn't accurate

    Thanks, I might have never known if not for this thread. It needs to be more prominently displayed.

    This is great! And it validates what many of us were talking about.
