    Still 5.0.1, but apparently solves SIM and "No Service" issues that some 4S users have...with an extra Easter egg. I found the story at:

    You may need to connect your device to iTunes and update that way.

    That's what I had to do. Only the original 5.0.1 update showed up on my 4S.

    I'm still on the older version and I can't update. Nothing in OTA and nothing in iTunes.

    Bummer too because I just started having the no service problem about 3 days ago.

    One way to ensure you get the new version of iOS 5.0.1 - restore the device. Delete iOS 5.0.1 from your computer and hit restore. iTunes will automatically download the latest iOS and install said firmware on your device :)

    IMO, the only ones who should go to the trouble of restoring to get 5.0.1 version 2 are those who are experiencing SIM card errors.

    Well, in 4.5 hours I haven't seen a "searching" message on my phone while I was sending texts or pictures. So I think it helped.

    Yeah, that's what I meant by SIM errors.

    Oh, i didn't know it was a sim error that was causing it. Actually, i didn't even know there was a software problem till I saw this post. i just thought ATT was having issues here. I was kinda hoping they were in the process of a 3G install. :p I think there will be 9G or data will be beamed into our heads before we see 3G.
