Vodafone warns its Apple iPhone 4S customers not to update to iOS 6.1

Vodafone is warnings its customers with the Apple iPhone 4S that they should not update to iOS 6.1 because the latest version of Apple's operating system has an issue that can prevent the user from making phone calls, sending and receiving text messages and accessing the web; the problems are intermittent and the fault lies with Cupertino...

Hey....you're right. Didnt someone on here the other day just say it works right out the box....hmmmmm. In fact I see ppl at other forums say this. Oddly tho....ppl are saying it less n less. I guess reality is finally setting in thats its just like any other OS.
I could've posted iPhone troubleshooting forums for the person on here that said it just works....but I can just point them to this article....

iOS and Android equally have issues. Didn't Samsung just issue a patch on some SG3 as it had a Exynos exploited that would brick your phone? I own a Note 1 and iPhone 5. Bth top have there faults. I rooted and rom'd my Note in hopes of eliminate issues like battery drain, but not luck. As for 6.1, my phone works just fine.

Exynos exploit has NOTHING to do with android, to be honest.. Not that I like Samsung and I know android have its issues, but this isnt one.

Don't you wonder why they thumbed you down 6x, just for speaking the truth bro? All most android users wanna know/hear is anti apple/pro android stories. Anything that's not praising android, and condemning apple gets red. I own the note 2 and ip5, but due to how long I've been with iOS it remains my daily driver, and yes I have issues with BOTH devices here and there. Overall both are top notch though, so I see where you're coming from.

I've never really known you to b childishly hating on apple or disrespecting its users. Wasn't singling u out bro.

Exactly. Well said. They both have their issues which is to be expected with an electronic device...especially if it's running an operating system etc. The price difference is enormous though for what you end up getting as a consumer.

The patch had nothing to do with Android, it had to do with the Exynos chip, the fact that the chip was in an Android device was irrelevant.
This problem is the OS itself blocking data connectivity intermittently, so every 4S updated to 6.1 on that network could be potentially affected by it, whereas only devices using the Exynos chip could possibly be affected by the exploit. So it wasn't Android that had the issue, it was the Exynos chip that had the issue.
You put it out of context; you compared a problem that could affect only devices with the Exynos 4210 and 4412, to a problem that could affect EVERY iPhone 4S, or possibly every iPhone running iOS 6.1.

Apparently, you're holding the wrong iPhone 4S.

lol.......you should stop hating apple too much nathan...i find you in many apple related articles bashing apple , sometimes for no big reason.
42. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3913; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
That was a bash? Oh my God...i didn't know. I thought it was a traditional joke.
43. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3913; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
By the way, i don't hate Apple, i just don't like it the way i do to Androids and WP. My love for Apple died with the 4S...i was speculating a better looking 5, something revolutionary like Apple did with the 4S. I held Apple high before i came here...just not up to it anymore. And yes, those are jokes...i don't think there's any problem in posting them?
54. darkkjedii (Posts: 21785; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Nathan? C'mon bro. It's kinda obvious my man. Me not hating android is accurate, you not hating apple...not so much.
59. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3913; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Why? Cause you have the Note II and i don't?
Like i said, i don't hate Apple... Let Apple come up with something totally different but good...save for the OS (i'd like to think it's their identity) and you'll see me vying for it. Wanna bet?

Ok that's fair, no argument from me on that. Now u sound more like a techie. I'm primarily an iOS user, but I'm a techie overall. Like I don't have a Mac bro, I have a windows pc, and last valentines day I bought my fiancé a galaxy tab 8.9. I pretty much like it all, and iOS does have its hiccups... I won't deny that, but its a solid OS. Time for a facelift though lol.

if ios7 gets a new UI , apple will get back into the game. the UI is getting old but it has a rich UI !
bring the thermo-nuclear war with '5S and math' apple !!

Lets hope so, but without the thermo nuclear war. Just a cool makeover.

I've seen some weird issued caused by iOS 6.1 alright,I've had some customers come in and their wifi will no longer switch on,some reporting erratic battery life. Some iphones needed a full restore after failing half way through the installation of iOS 6.1
IOS software,the pinnacle of technology

I am having the wifi issues with the iphone 5 on 6.1 and the wheather app keeps crashing too.

I've heard a lot of issues with "gray WiFi", where the phone thinks it is connected to WiFi but is using the cellular data, causing massive overages and data consumption (about 7GB more than usual!)
iPhail so hard!
48. andro. (Posts: 1999; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
Ya that's the one,it seems a lot of customers have had their WiFi switch disabled by the latest iOS update. The WiFi switch simply won't turn on. A few having this issue also with Bluetooth. Add these new problems to the infamous "cant switch on caller display" fault inherent in iphones and it seems like apple just doesn't like toggle switches!
