Carrier Update to 14.2 - Any details on it?

Hi folks!

So as the title says, my iPhone 5 automatically updated the carrier settings to AT&T 14.2 by I'm unable to find anything different. Any idea what this carrier update was about? Smiley Tongue

explain in more detail - do you mean

 

1. removed the setting to tether if you did not have a data plan capable?

3. will not allow the device to act as a hotspot / tethering location?

I think they meant removed the setting if your phone didn't have the appropriate plan to do so. But then again, the option shouldn't be there if you have the 3GB plan. So still a mystery... Searches coming up with nothing lol

got the update, still have the ability and setting in the control panel. and I do not have a tethered plan. By the way, they do have the right to prevent you from tethering if you do not have a plan that supports it or change your data plan to one that allows it - read your agreement

Re: Carrier Update to 14.2 - Any details on it?

I just checked and noticed something not so good.

 

On June 24 I ran a speedtest on my iphone 5 (after 14.1 update) and noticed that my download speed was anywhere from 23.81 and 26.38 mpbs. Today, after several tests my download speed has slowed to between 5.06 and 8.98 mbps. What's up with that?

I just checked mine and it did take a speed hit but not at my home still as low as its always been around 9.80 but at my wifes work it limited to 43.73 instead of 50 which is still fast but killed the upload to 5.10 from 15.00 so it looks like it can't run wide open any more.

Although anything is possible.. I just did some snooping around tmobile's forums and it seems they too have received a carrier update to 14.2 but no details there either..

Hey everyone, thanks for your posts about the Carrier Update for your iPhones. Check out Wireless Emergency Alerts Coming to iPhone 5, 4S which will explain the purpose of the update. It is possible that some customers will receive this udpate twice. If this happens to you, don't be alarmed, AT&T and Apple simply want to ensure an optimal device experience on our network. 

 

Thanks again!
