    iOS 5.0.1 been reading online many stating the same thing. I've done speedtests and noticed improvement. I was never complaining just more satisfied now.

    iTunes or update from your phone while on wifi. This is the update that apple released to fix battery issue. I'm not saying this fixed sprints 3G data speeds. Just stating in my opinion after update my 3G is faster.

    It hadn't been pulled, but you do need wifi.

    if I were to buy a new iPhone 4S from a Sprint store would it already have the update on there or would I have to do it manually?

    That's not true. My OTA updates are done over 3G. Maybe is has to do with your data plan? I am unlimited. Just make sure you are over 50% charged.

    Most people I know were told they had to be on wifi to do an OTA, I got the same alert on my 4S and iPad 2.

    You didn't get that for 5.0.1?

    And to add I am unlimited, I'm on Sprint!

    Everything I'm reading says this OTA update, even the posts and articles on here, required wifi!

    U do need wifi to be able to do OTA. When you back up to iCloud u also need wifi. Even on this site they released a how to on how to do OTA and it requires wifi for everyone. I'm on sprint so my data is unlimited.

    I believe so. At the rate the iPhone are selling im sure apple sending new inventory updated. If they dont just connect to iTunes and get it. Don't worry about this...go get your iPhone 4S

    All you need to do us go to settings, general, about, and it'll tell you what version you are using. If you're still on 5.0 go to update, and it should find the update, and let you update ota if you're on wifi and have enough battery. Or you can update by plugging into iTunes.

    I got this the other day in Dayton Ohio. Next time I upgrade in October of next year I'm ditching sprint probably and going with AT&T. These data speeds are crazy I'm sick of this.

    I just took this about 5 min from this post near my house. Ridiculous Sprint says what! Slow data speeds? Never! Lol whatever, they gotta know. I bet they are throttling everyone because we have unlimited data.

    Isn't there already a thread dedicated to bandwidth speed? I bet there's several examples of sprint speeds in there...or you could stop posting useless threads and finally go out and buy your own phone.

    Why not return you iPhone and get one with AT&T .. Or SELL it via eBay (for a small fortune) that practically pay for your ETF and buy you a iPhone on AT&T ... No need to wait


    And I get anywhere from 3-5mpbs down and 1.5-2mbps up in a Cleveland suburb during peaks hours like now lol
