    With the mess of IOS 8.0.1 yesterday, I was wondering if anyone's iPhone 6 carrier version changed. This is under General and About section.
    Mine is Verizon 17.0. I noticed a friend's iPhone 6 on sprint and one on AT&T was on 17.1
    Just curious if anyone on Verizon has gotten this 17.1 update?

    Thanks

    Carriers randomly release their updates.

    Carrier settings updates are small files that can include updates from Apple and your carrier to carrier-related settings, such as network, calling, cellular data, messaging, personal hotspot, and voicemail settings. You may receive notifications from time to time to install new carrier-settings updates.
    Follow these instructions to update your carrier settings:

    1. Make sure your device is connected to the Internet.
    2. Tap Settings > General > About. If an update is available, a prompt will appear.

    Note: Occasionally a carrier may release a mandatory update. This type of update will display only an OK button instead of an Update button, to let you know that the update was downloaded and installed.

    I'm rocking Cricket 17.0 on my iPhone 5(broke out of Verizon's iron grip just yesterday) I'm kinda disappointed with how the signal fluctuates so much with cricket. Would a software update fix that?

    When I first activated my iP6 last Friday the last thing downloaded was a "Carrier Update".

    Thanks for the tip on how to look for carrier updates. I didn't receive a popup of any kind so I suspect Carrier 17.0 is current for Verizon IOS devices.
    My iPad air and iPhone 6 both are on 17.0
