I see people saying that the update on iTunes is 700MB while OTA is the usual delta update. I guess I'll do the OTA first if that doesn't improve anything I'll do iTunes, even thou it's the same thing.

I think with future updates we will see bigger ones and people won't want to use ota for that long. I like wired also because it backs me up before it does anything else. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

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.
Meh, I need my battery fixed. I'm only getting 5 hours and 20 minutes on just texting and notifications from facebook. Dad has an iPhone 4 and hes still getting around 6 and a half - 7 hours.

Yeah, that's because the iPhone 4's battery is supposed to last longer than the 4S's.

Still doesn't matter. The bigger battery, and the processor that "cuts down on power" should last at LEAST almost as long. An hour is a pretty big deal. Hope this update fixes it and the standby issues everyones having.

You got apps running that are draining battery. Do a restore. My phone has been on standby over an hour, and i've been using it like almost 20 minutes and its at 99 percent.
did a restore ten gave it a full charge. Not sure what could be running that wasn't already.

If it's restored as "new", and you are having these problems even after this update, I think you actually have the right to take it back to Apple. They have no more excuses as to why they can't exchange it now.
