Vodafone is warning iPhone 4S customers not to upgrade to iOS 6.1 due to a bug that affects 3G performance.

We’re aware of an issue caused by Apple iPhone 4s handsets that have been upgraded to iOS 6.1 which impacts performance on 3G.

Some customers may occasionally experience difficulty in connecting to the network to make or receive calls or texts or to connect to the Internet. Apple is working on a solution to their software issue. These connection problems are intermittent.

While Apple’s investigations continue, we would recommend that anyone who has not yet installed iOS 6.1 on their iPhone 4s should delay doing so until Apple has confirmed that their problem has been fixed.


Apple has already seeded developers with a beta of iOS 6.1.1 but its unclear if this issue is addressed in that build.
