    Updates (OTA) to both iPad and iPhone 4s were seamless and took less than 15 minutes each. I have noticed a pretty significant increase in the browser speed on both devices. So far so good!

    browser speed for me has definitely improved as well

    also, no hiccups while web browsing and listening to Spotify simultaneously, on 3G (Stream>Extreme), so far. it had been a issue before (5.0.1)

    i have updated to the new 5.1 and it stopped my icon shortcuts from working anyone else have this problem and what can be done to rectify? thanks
    That is what I wanted to know before I upgrade. Is this for the Icon Project app or the other free shortcuts?

    I guess it's too soon to test it fully, but my phone seems a LOT better already. Battery not running down as quickly & I've had problems recently with slow running apps etc lately - this seems to be working better now. Love the camera shortcut too!

    Launch Center still works

    i thought Apple put an end to Icon Project with 5.0.1?

    Can't see any difference. Battery life is the same. I don't use Siri at all, so for me this update has not changed anything. Oh yeah, camera shortcut...

    I now do not have iMessage since I've updated to 5.1

    If I iMessage to someone still on 5.01 I can do that, but if they try to iMessage me while on 5.1 it goes through as a standard text

    Give me 5.01 back for the simple reason of just iMessage

    Yikes! Perhaps yours setting got changed? Can you go to Messages and see if iMessage is turned off?

    Also, just have to say how much I love being able to delete photos in Photo Stream. Such a needed feature. My niece loves to play around taking pictures with my phone, but it results in a lot of poor photos and don't need to be documented forever.lol

    i cannot get either my iP4 or iPad2 to update OTA. The iP4 lets me get to the download screen and when i hit download and accept the new policy, it errors out after 2 min stating "Software Update Failed: An error occurred downloading iOS 5.1". My iPad2 never can get to the download screen. Please help.

    Turn imessage off and back on, and it'll show up. The same issue existed in 5.0.1

    9to5Mac is reporting a "major security flaw" with the lock screen camera access... they claim that if you have a password set, you can bypass the lock screen by opening the camera, going to the camera roll, and gain access to your phone. When I tried it, I could not get to the camera roll because of the passord (I got a screen saying that my phone was locked and that I needed to unlock it to get to the camera roll).

    Can anybody get past their lock screen with this method?

    I can't replicate their claim with a passcode lock, unless the lock is set to a timer (like 1 min) and I manually lock the screen and that 1 minute has not passed. To me, that's normal functionality, since the phone hasn't locked yet.

    I get the same screen as you if the lock is set and I try to access pictures or videos. "Your iPhone is locked." If I hit the home button it asks for my passcode.

    I woke up this morning and was excited to play with my new iOS and then was shocked to see my battery percent is dropping by the minute with regular usage. I never had battery issues before so I'm a little disappointed, considering there was supposed to be a fix. Hopefully it corrects itself but if not then...

    I agree about iMessage. Mine isn't working either. I tried turning it off and back on. It still goes out as a regular text. The person I'm texting is still on 5.0.1. That shouldn't have anything to do with it.

    When using dictation the screen should turn off when I raise the phone to my ear. This appears to be broken now.

    My iMessage is working as it did prior to the 5.1 update. As for the camera, I Love the new slide up method from the lock screen and my battery life is still being tested. I do seem to stay at 100% longer than before but I never had any issues with battery life.
