"An update to the carrier settings for your iPhone is available"

I don't know why, but I'm just paranoid about downloading and installing this update. :suicide:

I genuinely don't know why, I just am! :facepalm:

My i4 is sim free and therefore permanently unlocked and I'm convinced the O2 devil is at work here and determined to somehow lock my phone to O2 to try and stop me moving to Vodafone. :devil:

Or am I worrying about nothing?

Did anyone else get a SIM free phone from Apple yesterday, stuck their O2 SIM in, do this update and remain SIM free?

I got that on my Sim free phone. Using a Three pay as you go.

Think it just installs the 'Three' settings and added the MyThree check usage thingy to my bookmarks.

Azzin I updated the phone and so did the lass, we both got the message "Congratulations your phone is now unlocked"
We got that message as soon as we both hooked the phone up to iTunes :)

Our phones were pre ordered sim free from Apple on the 15th

Ok, I just did it and iTunes said "Your iPhone carrier settings were updated successfully"...... :confused:

I'd better dig out a non O2 SIM I think.....

[Edit] - Ecept I don't have another Micro SIM. :facepalm:

Yes me to, Not sure what its for thought


it's the settings for GPRS/3G, MMS and tethering. It also tends to suppress the diverts active popup you get when using an iPhone on a unsupported network.
