    Woke up this morning to the message about the carrier update. Clicked "yes" and....nothing. So far I've not seen a change of any kind. Not sure what to make of it....misfire?

    So - what does the update do?

    The carrier settings file contains network set-up information that can be thought of like a hosts file on a computer... default addresses for things your phone does in the background and also controls how your phone behaves when it's "roaming" and not on a native Verizon data network - permissions, etc.

    Carrier settings can change as Verizon's data roaming agreements change, as well as when they are streamlining their own network - just like PRLs...

    On my iPad 2 with iOS 5, it has Verizon baseband 10.2.2. Wonder if it's different on the iPhone.
