    I have stuck with it on my 4S because I haven't had any problems. The updates I've read about aren't tempting enough for me to risk going to 5.1.

    Also, I put a couple of desktop shortcut icons on there that I use daily and I'm worried about losing those with this update. Would that be the case?

    I'm jailbroken and still on iOS 5.0.1 with no plans to update at this point in time. Not sure what shortcuts you are referring to so I can't answer that one.

    If you're satisfied with your device as-is then leave it. My devices worked well with iOS 5.0.1 and still do with iOS 5.1. I didn't lose any of my settings during the upgrade ( I upgraded via OTA) and I did not lose my ability to add a webpage to my home screen.

    i went to 5.1 due to horrible battery performance with 5.0.1, it fixed the problem

    if you are referring to the settings shortcuts you are right, you will no longer be able to use them with 5.1. small price to pay, IMHO

    BLiNK, didn't your new 4S come with iOS 5.1 preinstalled?

    i've also stuck with 5.0.1 because I know how good my battery life is and my 4S is functioning just fine. The update to 5.1 didn't have a lot of anything to interest me to feel I had to upgrade, so I'll keep my feet planted in the sand at 5.0.1 till I feel it's absolutely necessary to upgrade

    I'm jailbroken, so going to 5.1 was not an option. I got too much cool stuff on 5.0.1 to give up simply to be able to delete pics from my photostream.

    I got Screwed with a bad Cydia package and had to upgrade to 5.1 to get out of an endless reboot cycle. I'm desperate for a new jailbreak or a downgrade back to 5.1. C'mon DevTeam. Please?

    nope 5.0.1, but i decided that battery performance was more of a priority than anything jailbreaking had to offer

    now, if we can just get an untethered A5 jailbreak i should have the best of both worlds

    I am referring to the settings, yes. Specifically, I have "network" and "wifi" shortcut icons. You're probably right in that it's no big deal but I use the hell out of those. Also, unlike yourself, I'm not having battery issues so I don't have much to gain.

    OTOH, this is my first smartphone so I'm probably clueless about what good iPhone battery life looks like but I'd have to be using it really heavy to get less than a day out of a charge.

    i hate to say it but it's going to happen "whenever" you decide to update (tomorrow, next week--next year!) Apple always ruins the fun of course jailbreaking will give you better options of what you're doing now, even with a simple swipe or gesture if you wish!

    Only thing that tempted me on 5.1 was the lockscreen camera accesswhich I now have on 5.0.1 with Camera Grabber! No updating for me until a jb is out.

    I use "FullLockCamera". It keeps the Camera icon on the lock screen and it enables all of the features of the regular Camera app that the stock app doesn't from the lock screen.

    I used that for a bit, but find this cleaner and quicker, and just more FUN to use. It does also keep the icon onscreen all the time. But it doesn't provide the sharing options, true. I don't mind unlocking for that though...

    It was the install of CameraGrabber that F'ed my iPhone and resulted in me having to upgrade.

    Is there a way to downgrade to 5.0.1? I know that might sound dumb, but I would be so happy if there were, lol

    I bought an iphone for my wife last week and one for me yesterday. Both from the verizon store and both had 5.0.1 still installed. We both updated to 5.1 but we havent had them long enough to tell a difference from the old iOS. Plus we are both new to iphones so both iOS versions work great to us. I know her phones battery sucks but mine goes all day no problem. I blame it on her use of facebook and music playing though.
