Verizon's "carrier update" available
Just noticed something today:
If you go to "settings > about", you'll get a pop up notification that a "carrier update" is available with an option to "update now or later". I'm not sure what this is (maybe someone can shed a little light on this update), but when updated, the "carrier" is updated to "Verizon 10.1"
Whatever the update was, it's a pretty small file. It updated almost instantly on wifi.

A handset/PRL feature to indicate to a participating customer whether they are on a home system, a partner network, or a foreign (roaming) network. ERI capable handsets, when loaded with the proper software and PRL, will illustrate the home or roam condition using a banner with text on the handset display. While many phones can indicate home vs. roaming via an icon, ERI phones can clearly indicate the third "partner network" status, which may carry a different rate schedule.

I can also confirm it did NOT seem to affect my jailbreak. My carrier also went from 9 to 10.1, only took about 2 seconds to install. Once it was in, I even rebooted to be sure, but jailbroken apps, Cydia store, etc all still work fine.

About carrier settings updates in iTunes
iOS 4: About over-the-air carrier settings updates
Carrier settings updates are small files (about 10k) that are downloaded from iTunes to be installed on your iPhone or iPad Wi-Fi + 3G. The carrier settings can include updates to the default APN (how the device accesses the carrier's cellular data network). The carrier settings for iPhone also include special dialing codes at Settings > Phone > [Carrier] Services, default settings for Stocks, Maps, Weather, and other items. You should install the latest carrier settings updates for your device as soon as they are available.
