Vodafone warns its Apple iPhone 4S customers not to update to iOS 6.1
Vodafone is warning its customers using the Apple iPhone 4S that they should not update the operating system on their handset to iOS 6.1 at this time. An issue with the latest OS build is preventing some owners of the device from connecting to the internet, sending and receiving texts and could even prevent users from making and receiving calls. The Cupertino based tech titan released iOS 6.1 last week with a scarcity of new features like the ability of Siri to purchase movie tickets for you, new placement of some music volume controls on the lock screen, and some bug fixes. The problems occur intermittently over Vodafone's 3G network.

The carrier put the blame squarely on Apple, saying that the tech giant is working on the software issue and the mobile operator recommends that its Apple iPhone 4S customers refrain from updating their phone until Apple says it has fixed the problems. Apple has not commented on the situation and so far, no other carrier anywhere has advised its iPhone 4S packin' customers not to install iOS 6.1 at this time.

Are any of our loyal readers using the Apple iPhone 4S-or any iPhone model-having problems making calls, texts, or connecting to the internet since updating to iOS 6.1? Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.
