    Yes, it's safe to upgrade. And the bug to which you're referring is only on the iPhone4. FUD.

    Life is full of risks...lol.

    I'm not touching 6.1.3 because of my Jailbreak, and also because it didn't add anything worth upgrading to it.

    i just finished putting a curse on your device so you will be forced to restore and since you can ONLY restore to the latest firmware, well you know

    The very first thing I did with my iPhone 5 after I took it out of the box and made sure it was not scratched, scraped or dented was connect it to my MacBook to update the OS to iOS 6.1.3. I have no regrets and my device is performing as it should. Furthermore, my battery life is sufficient for my use. In other words, I can go from early morning to bedtime (midnight average) with moderate to heavy use on a single charge with battery life to spare just like I was able to with the 4S. Everything works and therefore, from my perspective, it is safe to upgrade.

    Was her contact associated with an email service like iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etcetera? If so, all she should have to do is delete that particular mail account and then re-configure it and make sure to turn on contacts in the mail settings of that particular email service.

I haven't read a single story of anyone's phone being hacked because of this flaw.

    Furthermore, a person need to have physical access to my iPhone in order to use that hack and that's not gonna happen so I'm in no way, shape or form worried about.

    The newest "hack" to bypass lock screens is only possible on the iPhone4...

    It's safe to update if you don't want a jailbreak.

    No problems at this end with the recent upgrade - but I gotta say too, no noticeable improvements, either.

    Now granted, this is a only a point upgrade (anyone else but Apple would call it a patch, not an update/upgrade), but the iOS is looking a little long in the tooth without any significant changes since v1 - including some built-in apps that simply don't cut it, especially if they want business market share - so one might hope for some improvements to more than security and whizzbangery with each step.

    I did it on my 4S and had no problems. I did however wait a few days for others to shake it out a bit before I upgraded. :-)
