If anyone is wondering here is the changelog from CNET:
"This update contains improvements and other bug fixes including:
Fixes bugs affecting battery life
Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation
None of these are really reasons for me to upgrade, so I'll be staying on 5.0. There was also mention of an autocorrect menu and a panorama mode in the camera app that were pulled before release. These may be in the next iteration of iOS 5.

My husband's 4S had an alert that told him that the update was available and allowed him to update from the phone. I had to go into software updates on my 4S (it told me to plug my phone in to a power source first) and then it had to download the update before installing it.
Anyone know why one phone's update was automatic and the other wasn't?

This post was not so much to mention that iOS was released but rather where to find it on your phone...again for those who DID NOT KNOW. You two (ghostface147 and kch50428) are obvious the all mighty know it alls and have nothing better to do then bash other trying to help. Sit down!

Whoa. Hey. Hold on. Back up here.
Guys, we have a new member, excited about his update, trying to help others out, and we're ragging on him?
George -- Thanks for sharing man. Hugely appreciated. I really wish we had more new members jumping in, on all forums, with helpful tips. Please keep it up, we're happy to have you here!
Every time a question is asked, it's in a slightly different way and inspired different answers, from different people. Also keep in mind, not every member goes to every forum. For some people, the device they have is the only forum they ever go to. That's fine. To each their own.

it's so irritating that I have to use wi-fi or plug into iTunes to get the update. I have DSL at home, that's going to take a good hour and a half just to download the update and then I have to install it. I don't know anywhere I can get wi-fi. Why can't I just get that 55MB update using iTunes? Anyone else annoyed by this?

No, we don't like to combine threads because a) it often causes problems on the backend, b) it's a terrible user experience.
You come to a forum, you post something, and suddenly it's moved, combined (often poorly) with other stuff, and nothing makes sense any more.
Every thread is valuable. Every discussion is important. Each one generates different opinions from different members.
Just be nice to people, be productive in threads, and if you don't like one, move on to another and let the people who do enjoy it have the space, time, and respect to enjoy it.
Now enough with the meta, back to 5.0.1...
Thanks Rene for your positive support!
I'm glad to see that my post has indeed helped out a few folks. 06FG2, BLiNK and the thanks received. Thanks guys!
@LVMHgirl, My phone and my wife's phone did not alert us to the update. The other night I was just curious so I went into Setting>General>Software Update and noticed the update
Just wanted to share.

This is the only apple forum i'm on, my first iPhone..I came from Android, and when they say there's an update it'll be in the next few months. This was the only thread i saw saying it was open to public. Other then that, I'm sure I would have never found out.
I'm sure some people come here to ONLY look in the iPhone forum, much like me.

Judging by your posts on these 2 threads, this is obviously bothering you a great deal. You couldn't do this OTA at all a month ago and now it's a hassle? Can't you just find a Starbucks or a McDonalds and have a coffee and download? It takes, like, less than 5 minutes. I wish I could take you there and buy your coffee. Seems like it would make your day!
