Apple releases iOS 4.2.6 update to correct Verizon bug
The Apple iPhone 4 finally found its way to Verizon after years of speculation and Apple has already made a software update available due to a few bugs that arose as the data began to flow.

The problem has to do with data consumption reports for users who are taking advantage of the newly added 3G mobile hotspot capabilities. The new iOS 4.2.6 update ensures that the data will be reported correctly, which is especially important given the data cap Verizon has in place.

Just as every other iOS update, all you have to do is plug your device into iTunes and hit update. It will take some time, but that is to be expected. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

I personally would find it annoying having to use my computer to constantly update my phone.

Cause having the choice to plug it into your computer when you want is bad. Its much better to be forced to take the update over air ie verizon/droid.

Wow... What a response... But I would hate to have to upload it over the air, that's so inconvenient. I mean, I have to hit a button and hit upload. The speeds are so much slower, oh wait... You can use wifi to download the update, so it's faster. Hmm... Ok.. So what's the downside to the OTA update? Not everybody wants iTunes installed on their computer? I know I sure don't. How about the Blackberry, it allows for either OTA or USB from computer. How many people plug it into the PC to update anymore? None... "forced to take the update over the air", haha.. You are a true Apple Fan Boy. You would buy a brick if it said iPhone on it.

mmm it doesnt? unless you plug it in which most people dont plug it in more than once a week and its not even a pop up update notice so it doesnt really get annoying like the windows java pop ups! (damn you windows update pop ups!)

you don't have 2 speakers at the bottom of your phone, that's why only one works.. the other side is the microphone...

@up - Easy Kevin. It's OK. There is a mic, not speaker.

One side is the mic and the other is the speaker. iPhone only has one speaker.
