Mine halted because it told me 'battery power below 50%.....the funny thing is the download took less than 15 minutes.....and the battery was at nearly 100% when it started....

They weren't kidding when they said you should keep it plugged in durin...

Avoid upgrading ! stick with 5.0 / 5.0.1

There are no big reasons to upgrade unless you are in desperate need of passbook or statustint/dnd. Everything else is just not worth the upgrade. Plus if you're on anything other than a iPhone 5 your speed will decrease slightly as well.

iOS6 is much ado about nothin!
Well technically the iPhone 5, and when it is released, the 6th generation iPod Touch, are the only devices that will be running the fully iOS 6....everything else is running iOS 6 Lite....because they won't get the full iOS 6 feature set....

iOS 6 performance on 4s

anyone update to iOS 6 that can report no slower performance on the iPhone 4s? I'm very concerned that this latest update will slow the 4s the same way iOS 5 did to the iPhone 4 users.
My sister has a 4S and it ran pretty smooth. Went through the maps and had no issues rendering the maps and messing with the 3D effects.
