Lots of people seem to have problems, but has anybody been successful?

iPhone 4, iOS 5

    I've just updated my iPhone 4 without any problems.

    Do it over the air on your iPhone rather than the old method.

    What's "lots of people"?

     

    I updated perfectly fine. My battery life was good in my 4S before, and I haven'teven noticed a difference.

    I have been following these forums for a long time now. I have to say that the number of reportecd problems for 5.0.1 so far has been lower then usual.

     

    By the way I had no problems what so ever with the upgrade of my iPhone.

    So far switching to ios 5.0.1 means no more music for me on my iPhone 4. The iPod icon is gone and all my playlists and songs (all dutifully purchased from Apple).  Songs are all in iTunes on my computer and even listed if I plug in the iPhone to sync but if you unplug the phone you can't access them. 

     

    I am NEVER upgrading OS again. I'll just wait to get the next phone. Lesson has been learned.

    Good for you!

     

    My iPhone 4 still on 50% battery life early afternoon. Never made any major calls. But after 4 hours and without any warning, it just turned off and showed totally drain. It never give any warning at all (20% battery warning, 10%, etc..). I thought they fixed the correct bugs on the software. But it seems that the bugs became a SUPER BUG. It's getting worse. I never had any problem before when it was still on its old 4.XX version. But when the 5.0 came in, that's where it started to behave like crazy.

    I was having no problems before I updated to 5.0. Just updated to 5.0.1 over the air and it installed quickly. No problems with the iPhone before or after either update.

     

    Being able to update wirelessly was pretty awesome too...
