Apple releases iOS 4.3.1 to correct minor bugs with cell network connectivity, and more
The upgrade includes a fix for a graphics bug on the 4th generation iPod touch, repairs a bug relating to connectivity on some cellular networks, fixes a bug that created a flickering image when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some television sets, and fixes an issue relating to authenticating with some enterprise web services.
The release of the upgrade is somewhat of a surprise to iOS owners as it had been rumored that the 4.3.1 upgrade would not be released for another two weeks. While the software was released earlier than expected, an upgrade was expected after researcher Charles Miller discovered a flaw in mobile Safari during the Pwn2Own hacking contest. During the contest, Miller shared the flaw with Apple in an effort to have the problem repaired.

I was hoping for this update. 4.3 was great, but I did notice some speed inconsistencies in loading web pages. So far, after updating to 4.3.1, web pages load much more smoother, the way it probably should be, and I even notice than the keyboard on my ipad and ip4 is more responsive and more accurate, not that it was bad before or anything.

And maybe that's exactly the reason why it is not available for the verizon iphone. You guys probably don't need it.

i hoped that i could set a distinction of alert sounds between my diff. email accounts on my phone & also a little disheartened that i can't upload links from Youtube to Facebook from my phone like i could with Android (...but could be that i haven't figured out how to do this yet too).

Well at least they did add more txt tones. Apple was never big on customizations. That's for android devices.

Is that true that you can't change your text ringer? I'm honestly asking because I didn't know that. I've never had a smartphone, but am probably going to get an Android phone when I can upgrade in May. Even all my "dumbphones" have been able to change the text ringer.
