    Odd that not everyone is getting the update. Are you on Verizon, AT&T or Sprint?

    This what I get...

    55MB but I don't have wifi at work.
    I hope to hear some good feedbacks right away, I'm tired of charging the phone 3 times a day.

    Not to double post - but just posted this in another 5.0.1 thread that was opened and I think it will be helpful.

    Here is how I got it to showup. Turn off Wifi - go to Software Update page - then it will be there and tell you that you need to be on Wifi. Reconnect to Wifi and update. Wala!

    Are you both using the iPhone 4S? This screenshot is from my 4. Is there a size difference for different models?

    The speaker mute bug it's on the 4S, maybe that's why. I dunno.

    Crap. I wonder if you can still shift-restore to iOS 5.0?

    Two day old 4s here and the update was available for me when I checked -- 55 MB. My phone is rebooting. I sure like the small quick update directly to the phone. It is as nice a process as I had hoped for with iOS 5.

    5.0.1 supposedly fixes the hole they are using to JB, I heard. I'd wait to update until I hear the official word about a potential JB.

    I updated no problem (3GS).
    I did use the wire though. Wait a few more times before I do ota. Think there will be some issues with this update and it being ota.
