When I update my phone to 6.0.1 will it delete all my data on my iPhone 4?


iPhone 4, iOS 6.1

    No.

    I urge you to make a complete backup before you do it.  There are those who HAVE lost everything and had to restore the phone to factory.

     

    Not having a complete backup is a risky venture in an upgrade.

    No if you update wirelessly (OTA) from 6.0.1 to 6.1. If you update through iTunes (or from an iOS version to another, lets say from 5 to 6) your iPhones completely erased and restored from backup. Make a backup before you proceed.

    You should always back up regularly whether or not you're upgrading the OS.

     

    Don't worry though, very few people have problems upgrading. (Your info states that you're on 6.1 already, I just did a recent backup when already on 6.1 and all my data was intact, the version number doesn't seem to have changed.)
