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?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.
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1970?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_USCarrier settings updates are small files (about 10 kb) that are installed on your iPhone or iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular models). Carrier settings include updates to Access Point Names (APNs), MMS settings, features such as tethering, and default apps such as Stocks, Maps, and Weather. You might receive notifications periodically about installing a carrier-settings update.
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.http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1970?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
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 don't see any difference. I've never had an issue reconnecting to LTE after having been on 3G. Glad yours has improved though.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.
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 don't see any difference. I've never had an issue reconnecting to LTE after having been on 3G. Glad yours has improved though.
I noticed two things so far: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.
Amber Government alerts have been there haha, this was a carrier update, nothing iOS related.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.
